Bali is a province in the country of Indonesia. The island is located in the westernmost end of the Lesser Sunda Islands, lying between Java to the west and Lombok to the east. It is one of the country's 33 provinces with the provincial capital at Denpasar towards the south of the island. The province covers a few small neighbouring islands as well as the isle of Bali. With a population recorded as 3,9 million in the 2010 the island is home to most of Indonesia's Hindu minority. It is also the largest tourist destination in the country and is renowned for its highly developed arts, including traditional and modern dance, sculpture, painting, leather, metalworking, and music. A tourist haven for decades, Bali has seen a further surge in tourist numbers in recent years.

Gebogan Offerings are towering offerings constructed around the base of a banana trunk. Prepared by the woman of the house hold, they are presented to the deities at temples birthdays. Typically, the first layer is composed of fruits followed by layers of rice cakes in many shapes and colors.
