What To See
The ‘Mother Temple’ is considered the most sacred site in Bali. Located high on the slopes of Mount Agung is the largest of the 11,000 Hindu temples. Dating back to prehistoric times it is named for Naga Basukian, the dragon Hindus believed to inhabit the sacred mountain
A spiritual awakening! Climb to the top of the mountain arriving before dawn to see the spectacular views of the sun rising over the island of Bali and Lake Batur.
Discovered in1923 by a farmer the ‘Elephant Cave’ dates back to the 11th-century. Used as a spiritual gathering place where worshippers were believed to purify themselves in the bathing pools. Pass under the menacing demon face as you enter the cave to see the statue of Ganesha, the elephant-headed Hindu god. Located outside Ubud in the town of Bedulu.
Located ‘in the ocean’ this temple is only accessible during low tide when you can walk to the temple. Tanah Lot is one of the main temples to worship the Balinese Gods. A nearby cave houses poisonous snakes which are believed to guard the temple. The best time to visit is during sunset when the golden skies frame the temple and the waves gently crash into the rocks.
