Gunung Kawi Temple | Bali, Indonesia

Saturday, 13 May 2017

Gunung Kawi is an 11th century temple in Bali, north east of Ubud. Beautiful shrines were carved into the rocks of the cliff face. It serves as a temple, but also a shrine for the Kings of the past. There are small rooms carved into the rocks which are used for meditation.
Gunung Kawi is an important source of holy water because the Pakerisan River that runs through the temple and is believed to transform into holy water as it flows through.
Walking around this sacred grounds, you get a sense of peace fall over you. Surrounded by rice fields and a vast jungle, you absorb the beauty of the nature that encompasses you.
