The Balinese calendar is the dating system used by Balinese Hindus on the island of Bali and Lombok. The Balinese calendar can be considered special because the Saka Bali calendar is the “convention” calendar. Not as absolute astronomical as the Hijri calendar, but it is not like the Javanese calendar, but ‘roughly’ is in between.
The Saka Bali calendar is not the same as the Saka Calendar from India, but the Saka calendar has been modified and added with local elements.
Bali Saka calendar can be said is a calendar syamsiah-kamariah (solar-candra) or luni-solar. So this calendar is based on the position of the sun and at the same time the moon. It is said that the convention or compromise, because along the course of the date is still discussed how the calculation.
In compromise it is agreed that: 1 day candra = 1 solar day. In fact 1 day candra is not equal to the length of 1 solar day. For that every 63 days (9 wuku) is set one day-solar which is equal to two days-candra. Today is called pangunalatri. It is not difficult to apply in arithmetic theory. The degree of accuracy is quite good, requiring only 1 leap day in a hundred years. (source: Wikipedia)
