Pagerwesi generally takes place four days after the Saraswati celebration.
Pagerwesi (or iron fence) is the day when the Balinese people strengthen their minds and souls against evil forces (the iron fence is a representation of strong self-preservation).
On the Pagerwesi day, people focus on personal strength building. They do this to make sure that evil will not enter their mind, speech and actions and harm their surroundings.
The God who is worshiped on Pagerwesi is “Sanghyang Paramesti Guru”. This god is responsible for wiping out all bad and evil beings in the world.
