ONE MORE BALI TEMPLE

In the middle of the country, in a little town with a name I did not know. Just another town along the road and another breathtaking temple, built by locals over hundreds of years. Famous? No. Breathtaking? Yes.

A lot of the gates had lions. I wonder why?

The owner of this scooter was no where to be seen. Because it was about to rain again … hard.

This shot gives you a sense of this rural Balinese village temple. It is huge and multi-sectioned .. and yes, about to rain.

image

Deity carvings were everywhere.

And many of the carvings were decorated.

The intricacies of this door are remarkable.

It was the entrance on this kori agung gate (roofed) with a candi bentar gate beside it (right).

And the detail across the temple caught the eye at every turn.

They had not gotten out all of the decorations yet, but were starting.

Truly amazing. So much care and beauty .. in a remote location. One of a thousand temples, that will never be famous.

Glad we stopped. And thanks for stopping by.
