Nyepi Day (Gallery)

Once a year people in Bali make elaborate ‘Ogah Ogah’ statues in time for Nyepi Day. The statues are paraded with loud drums through the streets at night in an attempt to get the attention of any had spirits. The next day every person on Bali is not allowed to leave their home or hotel and no light or flame is allowed. The bad spirits are said to leave the island as they presume the silence means the island is inhabited.
