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.

I couldn’t get a decent shot of the bull sarcophagus due to the people in front of me, but as it headed to Ubud’s Royal Palace, I was fortunate enough to get this wonderful silhouette. The mood now was of great anticipation for the cremation ceremony that would begin tomorrow. The atmosphere was simply electric.
