Penjor – a curved bamboo pole

Penjor  is one of the media used by Hindus in Bali as part of almost every important ceremony, especially for the anniversary temple celebrations.

The basic material of a penjor is a curved bamboo pole. The pole is then decorated with yellow coconut leaves, pala bungkah (roots – sweet potato or cassava), pala gantung (fruit – cucumbers, oranges, bananas), pala wija (cereal – rice, corn), plawa (leaves), traditional cakes, 11 Chinese coins, and a small shrine with some offerings.
