Silent Day, the religious holiday known as Nyepi, is the traditional Hindhu’s celebration that only happen in Bali. It falls every year according to Hindhu ancient calendar. It is a symbolic act for the winning of good (Dharma) over bad energy (Adharma).
All activities are totally stopped. No TV or Radio, no vehichels on the road, no light, no traveling, all activities are stop operated including the airport. The day of silent starts from 6am to the next morning, 6 am. The whole Hindhu are fasting and meditating during the Nyepi day for self purification.
The day before Nyepi which is well-known as Pengrupukan ( I will post later about it) all Balinese do such a small ceremony to dismiss evil spirit around their compound and also the area they live usually at the junctions.
The day after live gets back to normal again. Found this loyal man near my homestay cleaned the temple on the day after Nyepi.
