  On Galungan Dharma vs Goharma
by balisunshine

At the beginning of October
Bali's unique three day festival
which, is celebrated by
the 'Agama Hindu Dharma' religion
takes place?.
bringing brightly colored temples,
decorated streets by their residents,
Galungan is a day to commemorate
the victory of Dharma (virtue) over
'Goharma' (evil) according to
the Purana (Balinese History).

Unfortunately, the 2005 bombings
took place before the celebration of this holidays.

Banks and most stores are closed these days.
Hindus on the island do not work.
