Hindi celebration at the Hidden Canyon near to Ubud
This photography shows part of a Hindi ritual that took place in August 2019 in Bali at the Temple and Hidden Canyon. This moment is taken while the father is pouring water on the child's head. There were several places in which a person is obligated to pour water either 3, 7 or 11 times on forehead, neck or drink it. This is supposed to bring luck in the future. After the ritual, person climb up to the Temple and continue praying.
