After a short 45-minute drive from Nirarta,
into the wooded hills close to Mount Agung,
we reach Besakih, the enormous mother temple
complex at the centre of Balinese spiritual life.
We pause for prayer and reflection in the main Penateran
Temple honouring the three fundamental energies
of life, at the peaceful and mysterious ‘Dark
Temple’, and, time permitting, and at the King
Cave Grotto with its natural stone arch.
From Besakih a short half-hour drive brings us to Kintamani, with
some magnificent views of the crater lake below. We will enjoy
an excellent buffet lunch on the rim of the caldera crater,
overlooking the lake and volcano.
After lunch, we visit Batur Temple, honouring
the aspect of the Divine connected to Water and the conserver
of life, Wishnu. This temple is home also to a charming and powerful Chinese
After Batur, we visit, the once forbidden sacred temple of Puncak
Penulisan, long ago, as its name suggests, connected
with writing. The temple, set high above a long flight of
stairs, is a place where besides enjoying the peace and
silence of the temple you can set your intention. You will
see a collection of old Siva lingams and statues of Ganesha,
before returning to Nirarta.
