This afternoon we headed to Kuta beach to join the crowd admiring Ogoh ogoh from Kuta area. The display of Ogoh ogoh was just next to Bali Sea Turtle Society, thousands of people visited this area after Nyepi day to celebrate Ngembak Geni with their families and friends. This year in 2016 there were 13 Ogoh ogohs on display representing each groups, each of them were truly magnificent. I cannot imagine how many hours it took for the artists to carve each Ogoh ogoh.
In case if you need further explanation about Ogoh ogoh here is a link to a wikipedia page.
