Religions in Bali

Temple ceremony at Tanah Lot Temple Bali

Balinese are mostly Hindus but Balinese Hinduism is a world away from that of India. At one time Hinduism was the predominant religion in Indonesia (witness the many great Hindu monuments in Java) but it died out with the spread of Islam through the archipelago. The final great Hindu Kingdom, that of the Majapahits, virtually evacuated to Bali, taking not only their religion and its rituals but also their art, literature, music and culture.

Religion in Bali has two overwhelming features, it's absolutely everywhere and it's good fun! You can't get away from religion in Bali: there are temples in every village, shrines in every field, offerings being made at every corner.
