Ancak Sanji

For most Balinese Hindus, cremations or burials are the common way to honour the dead. However, in Trunyan Village, the funeral tradition is slightly different, to say the least. The dead are not buried or cremated as is generally the case in other areas of Bali, but rather, the villagers of Trunyan place their bodies on the ground, cover them with cloth, and arrange bamboo around them to form a prism.

Taru Menyan Tree 

Have you ever thought ? There is the most unique thing about the cemetery in Trunyan Village, although the corpses are lying on the ground to rot, but the corpses have no smell at all. This is due to the presence of the Taru Menyan tree that has existed since 11 centuries ago there. People believe that it is the Taru Menyan tree that keeps the corpses from smelling bad.
