Photographer's Note

PERANG PANDAN = The fight using thorny pandanous leaves as the weapon.

Still taken from my serial photo Perang Pandan.

As an ancient village, Tenganan Pegeringsingan is identical with religious activities. Many temple festivals performed in this village that attract visitors to come. The most famous one is "Mekare-kare" or "Perang Pandan". This is a ceremonial fight or war using thorny pandanous leaves as the weapon. This festival usually takes place in relation to the celebration of "Sasih Kelima" or the fifth Balinese month. Many other uniqueness of custom and culture can be found here that make Tenganan worth to visit.

For more infos about the village of Tenganan, please revert to my photo "PERANG PANDAN #1"

I hope you like it.
