Legong Dance & Ramayana - Ubud Palace, Bali, Indonesia

Balinese dances are a very ancient tradition that is a part of the religious expression among the Balinese people.

In Bali there are various categories of dance, including epic performances such as the omnipresent Mahabharat and Ramayana.

Certain ceremonies at village temples feature a special performance of a dance-drama, a battle between the mythical characters Rangda, the witch representing evil, and Barong, the lion or dragon, representing good.

Among the dance traditions in Bali, the following deserve special mention : Barong, Legong & Kecak.
