Ogoh-Ogoh Ubud  Indonesia


Balinese Hindus open their New Year in silence. It is called Nyepi. It is meant to be a day of introspection and reflection. Nyepi Eve is however celebrated with processions of Ogoh-Ogoh. Each village will create these huge puppet like figures which are meant to symbolise evil spirits and demons. These are paraded through the village streets from dusk accompanied by torches and much noise created by the village bands, fireworks and other homemade noisemakers. The noise is meant to both awaken and appease the demons.
