Galungan is marked by placing a penjor outside every home.
For Hindus in Bali, the penjor is a symbol of a mountain that is considered sacred. The penjor should be installed on the day of the galungan ceremony, after 12 noon. This means that when we are humans, we fight against dirty thoughts, fight against negative traits, and ego traits. After successfully winning the war against these thoughts and traits, as a sign of victory, a penjor is installed as a symbol of "victory".
