Notes

During the temple ceremony (odalan) a wayang lemah – a day-time puppet performance is held to entertain the gods attending the temple festival. Unlike most shadow-puppet performances that take place at night and behind a screen with oil lamps, this type of wayang is performed during the day and without the screen.
