A Ngaben or a cremation ceremony is a ritual the Balinese perform as part of their funeral process.
I did not speak a word of Bahasa and my driver kind of left me there for 6 hours which made it really awkward in the beginning since I was the only foreigner with a camera yet, without a word, the Balinese families welcomed me and allowed me to silently document their ceremony.

The entire ceremony was elaborate with many rituals; yet from what I understood, I was witness to a 'cheaper and fast-forwarded' version of the actual ceremony which is very expensive and lasts for many days.
In some cases, a mass ceremony will be performed in the village because it is more affordable.
