Bali, Indonesia: Temples Galore

BALI, INDONESIA – Bali is called “The Island of a Thousand Temples” for a reason. Everywhere you go, every corner you take, you’ll see a Hindu temple or shrine. It is said that there’s one in almost every home.

Here are some photos of a couple when I was there in 2011.

The rule of thumb for every temple anywhere in the world: dress appropriately. This means no slippers, shorts and sleeveless tops. And also, respect local customs. In the case of Bali, even if I was wearing pants, I still had to wear this Sarong all around. They can be rented at the entrance.

I wish I could give a more exhaustive guide, but I’ve lost my notes on this somewhere. I’d probably be back in Bali anyway, some other time in my life. And then things will be different. 🙂
