History has shown that the teachings of Hinduism is the oldest in the world. This religion has evolved from India to the rest of the world by peaceful means. We can find a way to pray and culture or tradition, culture and art based on the Hindu in various continents and countries. Which makes proud because Hindu traditions outside India is very unique in that it blends beautifully with art, tradition and local culture.

Hindu people in Indonesia not only exist in Bali, but also in other areas such as Jakarta (capital of Indonesia), Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Papua and other regions. Hindu tradition and culture in Indonesia was initially grown on the island of Java, and developing very great in Bali, and now the community that comes from Bali definitely brings a Hindu tradition and culture to various regions in Indonesia.
