Sarasawati Day

  • Bali Bali Indonesia (map)


Balinese Hindus celebrate Saraswati, a day devoted to the Goddess of Knowledge, Art and Literature - Dewi Saraswati. To mark this tribute, books of knowledge and Sanskrit manuscripts are blessed and special offerings are made together as a form of gratitude for knowledge and wisdom. The day is the first in a series of five important religious highlights. Saraswati falls on an Umanis Watugunung Saturday on the Balinese 210-day pawukon calendar, hence its occurrence twice in a Gregorian year.
