Bali Ceremonies Calendar 2019
Çaka 1940 – 1941

Bali local citizens are mostly Hindu followers and have their own Lunar-based calendar system called the Çaka calendar. The print version of this calendar is available to buy at local supermarkets and bookstores. The calendar provides general information about Indonesia public holidays, also various information such as the Moon cycle, Hindu holidays & events, recommended period for planting & harvesting crops, and many more. Among the holidays, there are some very important holidays like Galungan which requires a lot of details that the Balinese would take leave from their daily work for one full week.

If you come to Bali at the “right” time, you might be frustrated with lots of worker holidays and roadblocks since Balinese often use the road to hold a ceremony. To have a full experience of your holiday in Bali, below you can find important days taken from the Balinese calendar so that you can plan you holiday with ease.
