The Island of Bali will embark 512 Moslems on their haj pilgrimage to Mecca in September 2014.
This represents a decrease from the 613 people from Bali who joined the haj in 2013.
Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Any Haniah of the Ministry of Religion office in Bali said, “Of the 512 haj pilgrims, 7 are departing from points outside of Bali, leaving only 505 people actually leaving from Bali.”

The group will depart Bali by bus two days before on September 24, 2014, spending one night at the Haji Dormitory in Surabaya.
