The Cremation of the Queen of Ubud – clip

The Cremation of the Queen of Ubud

The public appearance of tribe’s warriors on the door steps of the royal palace of Ubud marked the beginning of the cremation ceremony of the Queen of Ubud. In Bali’s tradition her farewell from this world to her reincarnation is a ceremony that brings the whole community together. A 26 metres high -6000 kg  tower and a giant bull were built for the occasion. The coffin was transported in the tower from the palace to the cemetery then placed in the bull before being cremated.
