Yesterday we were lucky enough to be in Ubud to witness the royal cremation and funeral ritual of the wife of the heir to the throne, Cokorda Istri Sri Tjandrawati. She was carried in a 25 meter high tower structure from the palace to the cremation sight followed by chanting men and drums. Quite a spectacle – see for yourselves! (Unfortunately the Internet is too weak to upload the video, but here are some pictures)
