Orange is Not a Popular Colour in Bali

Pelangkiran or the place dedicated to the pray of a certain God. This is a pelangkiran at my maca (mart and cafe) for the God of Sri Sedana (God of Prosperity) with orange colour dominant.

Actually, orange (Indonesian: oranye) is not a popular colour in Bali. That we do not have the original word/ term for orange in Balinese language. We refer orange as ‘tasak gedang’ or the colour of riped papaya. Gold (Balinese: mas) and yellow (Balinese: kuning) are more common in our language.

Like this, a photo taken of a harvested papaya from our garden.
