A myriad of pilgrims said prayers at the Ulun Danu Batur Temple, Kintamani. The spiritual activity was carried out during the Ngusaba Kapat at Ulun Danu Batur Temple Kintamani on Saniscara Umanis Sungsang, Saturday (Oct 19). Committee of the ritual, Ida Jro Gede Batur Alitan, said it was a regular ritual held every year intended to invoke safety and well-being for all people, especially those in Bali. “We do hope that all Balinese people could participate in making the Ngusaba Kapat successful by saying prayers to the Ulun Danu Batur Temple,” he said.
The ritual was slightly special because some time ago Bali had successfully held the grandiose international events such as the Miss World and APEC Summit 2013 that had taken place safely and smoothly. “Through this ceremony, we would like to express our infinite gratitude to Lord abiding in this Ulun Danau Batur Temple,” he said.
