The nature of Penjor Galungan notes the completeness of including the commodity of agricultural products as a symbol of prosperity and holy place (sanggah) to pray.

Penjor Galungan is very different from Pengor race which must be made as good and as beautiful as possible. This is emphasized because Penjor prices sold by traders vary from Rp250.000 to Rp2, 5 million per piece, depending on the completeness ormanennya.

For that Galungan penjor according to Ngurah Sudiana actually do not need expensive and mutually important jor-rod completeness and meaning. People who live in one alley for example can make a Penjor mutually help or descend buy a Penjor to be installed on the roadside.
