Bats, Beach, and ‘Bali Aga’
Heading down towards Klungkung, we turn off towards Kusamba, a centre of fish
processing and salt production on the beach, opposite Nusa Penida.
stop is Pura Goa Lawar, ‘Bat Cave Temple', associated with
balance in the environment and the interconnectedness of life. We pray at
the temple-cave, which like a huge ear twittering with myriad bats, leads
into the hill, and, legend has it, goes all the way to the Mother Temple,
Crossing the road, we complete our visit with some moments of
reflection on the beach, looking over towards the island of Nusa Penida.
Continuing towards the toursit centre of Candidasa, we visit
Aga village of Tenganan, where people preserve the practices and
traditions of old Pre-Majapahit times, including sacred natural-dyed “Gerinsing” double
About 15 minutes from Candidasa, we will park and stroll down to a beautiful
quiet white sand bay for fresh grilled fish lunch and young coconut, and, if
you fancy, a swim. We return by the scenic route, up a quiet lane offering spectacular
views of the coast and hills around. (9.00 – 17.30).
