Tumpek Uduh

Tumpek Uduh, Tumpek Pengatag or Tumpek Wariga, is an event dedicated to Sanghyang Sangkara, the god of food on Bali Island.

This event is held 25 days before Galungan, a significant festival held once every 210 days. On this day, offerings are made to this god to invoke blessings on the land. These offerings constitute crops and farm products from the many plantations scattered across the island.

Tumpek Uduh, 2024 Dates, Bali Earth Day Celebrations & Festival

The locals usually engage in this traditional festival by placing their varied offerings at the base of select trees on the island. Some will even go further and prepare porridge, which is poured on the trees.

This ritual aims to remind the locals of the importance of plants and natural vegetation as a source of food for the locals. The idea behind Tumpek Uduh also revolves around pleasing Sanghyang Sangkara and asking for guidance on the cultivation, growth, harvesting and preservation of the plants.

Visitors who spend time on the island around this period will be happy to discover that the festivals also promote an appreciation for the harmonic living of human beings worldwide.

The best comparison to this day would be the global celebration of Earth Day. Balinese locals grasped the importance of conserving nature and preserving the environment well before the rest of the world figured it out. This passing on traditions from one generation to another is another marvel for visitors who want to enjoy Tumpek Uduh.
