Offerings to the gods, Bali

Daily offerings, Bali

Small offerings of food, fruit and flowers on woven palm leaf are made to the gods twice daily.

The Balinese are a very religous and superstitious people.  Their religion is a unique blend of Indian Hinduism and local animism.  Bali remained the last bastion of Hinduism on the Indonesian archipelago after the arrival of Islam from the 12th century AD.
