Bali is well known as the island of God since it has so many magnificent sacred temples and visitors scattered among the Islands. Most of the temples are allowing tourists to visit, but you are required to wear a sarong and a sash. Sarong or Kamben is a cloth worn to cover the lower part of our body and tie around the waist and falls just right below the knees.

Men used to wear Sarong or Kamben from the left to the right which means ‘good’ (dharma). It covers legs down to the ankle, which means that men ought to be more in supporting their family. And for the women, the sarong is worn from the right to the left which means that women are the Sakti of the men, keeping the men balance. While the sash is worn around the waist.

So, make sure you wear the sarong or kamben if you want to enter the temples. In major temples where it’s common for tourists to visit, there are some people whom provide kamben or sarong for rent.  Other rules that important to know, make sure that you are “clean”, you aren’t in mourning state or in a monthly period.

Having good transportation is a must to complete your perfect holiday. It’s not difficult to find the transportations that could take you anywhere around Bali.

Taxis –  Taxi is the most commonly used to get around Bali. It’s easy to find it. Bluebird is one of them. It available in many places in Bali and a metered-taxi with English speaking drivers. They also have a mobile app that helps you to make ordering easier.

It also has other services like food delivery and so on and you can pay using digital payment services on the mobile app. Grab was formerly known as Grab Taxi. In some places like Kuta and Ubud, Grab is not allowed, Taxis are preferred in these places.

But if you would like to go around Bali all day long, we recommend you to rent a car with a driver.At some point, it would be cheaper rather than order Taxis or Grab many times for one day. And if you want to explore Bali by motorbike, you can rent a motorbike in a motorbike rental, but you are required to have a driving license.

Crazy Traffic

5 Tips on Visiting the Temple in Bali

 

Bali is not limited to its white sandy beaches, lush ricefields, and vibrant nightlife. As the island known for its heritage and traditional cultures, the temples in Bali are no strangers to tourists from all over the world. Many people are visiting the temple in Bali during their trip.

Dedary Kriyamaha’s villas architecture and interior design are native-centric. We inspired by the authenticity of the Balinese signature that implied in our buildings. 

If you’re into culture, we have put together a list of five proper etiquettes to keep in mind if you are wandering to one of the temples here in Bali that you can also book from us by asking your villa butler.

 

5 Tips on Visiting the Temple in Bali

Dress properly while visiting the temple in Bali.

When visiting the temple in Bali, dressing appropriately is advised since the temple is considered a very sacred place. Before entering the temple, both men and women should wear a sarong to cover their legs until below the knee. If you don’t want to buy these or forget to bring these, it often can be hired at the entrance of most of the famous temples. Usually, it’s paired together with the sash that should cover your waist.

It’s not a bad idea to buy a sarong of your own, consider that as a souvenir. Mostly, the sarong has a dozen other uses and cheap. 

Men and women are expected to wear clothing that covers shoulders, the upper part of the arms, thighs, or sometimes even your bare legs. Flip flops are perfectly acceptable.

Compared to its southern counterparts, most Balinese locals tend to live traditionally, conforming to traditional values. So when you and your loved one are in or near Balinese temples, keep the lovey-dovey frolics to a minimum since some people might find it disrespectful.

Mind your behaviour. 

In Balinese beliefs, feet are considered unclean. So make sure you don’t point them to shrines or holy objects such as the altar or the temple itself. This is why, when praying, Balinese men sit with their legs crossed and facing side or back, while women kneel to avoid pointing their feet. 

As for your index finger, you can instead point with your thumb or use all of your hands to be more respectful. If you need to call someone, you may extend your hand, raise your hand, or making a downward wave with the palm facing down.

Walking in front of people who are praying is considered rude and disrespectful. If you happen to visit a temple during their praying ritual, kindly wait until the ritual or praying finished before moving in front of them. Usually, the ritual will end after the “manku”, splash the holy water to the prayers. Please also mind your belonging as the temple will be crowded during specific days or hours.

 

5 Tips on Visiting the Temple in Bali

Don’t visit the temple if you are in your period or pregnant

Unfortunately, if it’s that time of the month for you or you have an open sore, it’s considered impure and prohibited for you to enter a Balinese temple. Pregnant or women who have given birth within six weeks should also not enter a temple until they have a purification ritual with the baby.

Control your temper

When visiting a temple, kindly mind your words and voice as well. In the Balinese culture, raising voice is deemed vulgar, while losing your temper is shameful. 

 

5 Tips on Visiting the Temple in Bali

Be respectful of religious processions and offerings. 

Firstly, don’t intentionally step on offerings you can commonly find sitting on the streets or sidewalks, it’s called Canang sari. Locals usually make Canang sari in the morning, it consists of a basket with a handful of colorful flowers, and typically look like attractive packages of woven palm leaf, and herbs. 

There is a high chance that you will come across a Balinese ceremony or rituals during your trip. You can use this list as a guideline whenever you are visiting the temple in Bali. Keep your voice to a minimum when stumbling upon a procession, avoid flash photography in the temple, and be considerate.
