Pura Besakih(The Mother Temple of Besakih) & Rice Terrace-BALI
What´s up guys??Here i´m back with another pictures from the Paradise Island(Bali).These pictures are from the result when we were visited the most the largest and holiest temple and is the most important temple in Hindu religion in Bali,is called Pura Besakih or The Mother Temple of Besakih and is one of series Balinese Temple.This temple is located in the village of Besakih on the slopes of Mount Agung in eastern Bali, Indonesia.Perched nearly 1000 meters up the side of Gunung Agung, it is an extensive complex of 23 separate but related temples with the largest and most important being Pura Penataran Agung. This is built on six levels, terraced up the slope. This entrance is an imposing Candi Bentar (split gateway), and beyond it the even more impressive Kori Agung is the gateway to the second courtyard.
On my way to Pura Besakih,we have one stop at beautiful place with the amazing scenery,landscape and rice terrace and coconut trees.Of course we have a bit busy taken some pictures from this beauty.And after continue again with our driver,and the road to Pura Besakih is really adventure is looks like off road for us.But we love it as we can´t stop to enjoy the amazing view along the road to Pura Besakih.First on our way we still lucky that the weather is blue sky and shinning but in the end of our arriving cloudy and raining weather,so make our trip a bit slowly as plan.And of course a bit difficult to drive on the mountain road when is raining.Yeach...and the adventure is getting a big more(lol).So,we drove for about 3 hours from our hotel in Nusa Dua,Bali as plan about 2 till 2,5 hours.
But finally we´re happy,arriving in Pura Besakih and we have amazing event that happend only in very special time.I know,is very crowded and many buses and people come and go to this temple.This ceremony,it has a very special period time as every 20 year,every 10 year,every 5 year and every year.One ceremony is begin it held for about 20 day until a month.For us,is really a very special moment to come in the same time when ceremony is begin,even so crowded but you have a special feeling.Before we´re going to the main gate of Pura Besakih,we have a friendly tour guide that help us to explain everything about the Mother Temple of Besakih.I suggested you guys,for the first time come here,must do,is better to have one tour guide and negosiation dirrectly about the price.Because this temple is really largest and much easier that you have tour guide who knows everything and they can explain you everything in detail.
