Hindus in Bali greet the beginning of the Saka Calendar new year with meditation rather than a big festival. No activities are permitted to occur. No pleasure, no traffic, no fire, and no work are among these essential religious prohibitions. Nyepi Day will fall on 22 March 2023.
The day before Nyepi, on March 21, 2023, is known as Pengerupukan Day. Our nearby Seminyak and Legian villagers will perform an Ogoh-Ogoh parade in the evening beginning at 7 P.M at Seminyak street.
On Pengerupukan Day in the Seminyak area the art shop, stand, and the traditional market will be open until 3 PM. The restaurant, bar, and cafe will be open until 10 P.M and the Supermarket and minimarket will be open until 11 PM. The manifestation of someone, an item, or anything else that disturbs people’s lives is called an ogoh ogoh. At the main village crossroad, the ogoh ogoh gathering point, a parade ceremony will be held.
Please be aware of the following circumstances if you are a guest staying with us on Nyepi day:
