The religious experience of multicultural society in Indonesia has frequently been characterized by conflict and violence in various regions. This reality created anxiety and concern in our country that is full of “pluralist endowment. On this basis, Indonesia is not only known as the state with the motto Bhinneka Tunggal Ika, but also a nation with a number of challenges and problems that arise from plurality of ethnicity, religion, and culture. The thesis reveals that the presence of religious life (Hindu-Muslim) in Denpasar Bali is not like other regions in Indonesia, which is always covered by conflict and violence in the name of religion. Multicultural society in Denpasar Bali indicates ideal collaboration between Muslims and Hindus to build religious activities. It is an integral part of Balinese life and the Balinese friendly character to sprout back to Bali Glow (Bali Aga). Of course, this takes a long time to proceed through the dialectical theology, ideology, and socio- cultural processes. Together with social institutions, the local government had tried to maintain and protect the essence of Hindu Balinese culture, by preserving the tradition of "Menyama Braya" for the realization of a harmonious religiosity as well as to boost the economy through tourism industry.
