Ambassador H.E. I Gusti Agung Wesaka Puja hosted the Balinese celebration of Galungan- Kuningan at his residence last saturday. The ambassador himself from Bali, participated in the hindu prayer ceremony which was attended by balinese from all over Europe.

The ancient tradition of Galungan- Kuningan symbolizes the victory of dharma over adharma, or good against evil. Afterwards a variety of cultural actvities where performed at the garden of the residence. This included traditional dance and gamelan music from Bali aswell as an acting performance.

The day was considered a huge success by the attendants who also enjoyed the Balinese dishes specially prepared for this celebration.
