Purification ritual with High Priest/High Priestess
A High Priest (and his wife, the High Priestess) are called Ida Pedanda and belong to the High Caste of BRAHMAN.
In the 14th century, priests, nobles and artisans fled Java to escape their Muslim conquerors and brought Hinduism to Bali.
Brahmans are Priests and scholars. They preach, teach and perform ceremonies.
When in presence of a High Priest or a High Priestess, we address them respectfully, the Balinese way, wearing a sleeved top and a sarong, bowing slightly, hands gathered on the heart, always sitting a bit lower than them.
Note : Menstruating women are not allowed on temple grounds…
The Ida Pedanda dresses all in white, hair held into a bun, a long white sash wrapped around the waist. For such purification ritual – called Melukat – all the necessary traditional regalia are prepared: Bells, bowls, incense, flowers, offerings, holly water, headband and a bracelet.

The Ritual is performed at the High Priest’s compound, in Bangli or Downtown Ubud
