Canang Sari


Walk down any Jimbaran Street, and you find the ground strewn with little square trays made of woven coconut leafs, decorated with flowers, fruits and palm leaves. These are offerings to the gods known as canang sari – ‘sari’ means essence and ‘canang’ means offering – diligently placed by the Balinese as part of their daily ritual of worship. You find them everywhere you go on Bali because everywhere is a place of worship. Even in hospitals, airports and shopping malls.
