Photo Spot Details

Ngaben is a Balinese funeral ceremony. For Hindunese people, there is caste system. Higher someone’s caste means the Ngaben ceremony is more luxurious. But the luxurious Ngaben ceremony can not be found any time. The ceremony is not held right after someone passed away, because they have to set the best date based on their culture. Nowadays, Ngaben ceremony is held en masse to reduce cost.

Wide or tele lens can be used to captured good moments at Ngaben ceremony.
