Interesting Places Visited in Bali...

We saw many interesting places and of course the evidence of a Hindu culture is just about everywhere.

Gitgit Waterfall - notice the black and white sarong on the rock...supposed to confine the evil spirits to that area according to Hindu belief.

These stone statues are seen everywhere and are usually very ugly to scare off the evil spirits.
(I am so thankful for the presence of the Holy Spirit in me and the peace I have in need to live in fear.)

Each city,town and village has a statue as you enter.

Suja and Larry

Gate to Taman Ayun Hindu temple.

Pura Luhur Batukaru one of the oldest Hindu temples in Bali and we were required to wear sarongs.

Lots of steps to climb...Pura Besakih the oldest and most sacred temple in Bali.

Water Palace area. Floating Pavillion at Taman Ujung East Bali.

Monkey Forest

Stone carved statues.

Village market buying a fan to stay "cool".

Wood carving of an eagle.

Balinese & Kris Dance

The Barong-play represents an eternal fight between good and evil spirits.
