On 15 July 2008, one of Bali's largest ever cremation ceremonies in the last three decades took place in the culturally vibrant “village” of Ubud. Three royal figures and 68 commoners were cremated. This photoblog is a record of that wonderful day.

The Naga Banda

The Naga Banda (dragon), rarely seen even in royal cremations, was used in the cremation ceremony because of the prominence of the deceased Tjokorda Gde Agung Suyasa and the very important role he played within the Puri and Ubud community.
