Bali is known as the Land of the Gods. Hinduism is alive in everyday life and one encounters ceremonies and offers to the Gods at every turn. The countryside of mountains, terraced rice paddies and forests is covered with temples of every size.
Famous for the white sandy beaches in the touristic south, the centre of Bali is dominated by volcanoes, led by the Mount Agung, the Great Mountain, and magnificent lakes in green valleys.
Traditional arts and crafts include wild ritual dances, gamelan music, wood carvings and paintings.
...is not entirely barrier free. In Hinduism, levels and stairs are an important part of the philosophy surrounding a temple. But it is always possible to discover some, if not all, sides of a location. We provide assistance to explore as far as you wish to, using portable ramps, 'secret' sideways, and the help of competent personnel ready to assist.
