Bali is one of the most spiritual locations to be discovered on the Indonesian islands. Boasting an impressive cultural history that spans the country’s golden age of Buddhism as well as the advent of Hinduism, its landscape glitters with the grand relics of spirituality in ages past. Bali’s accommodation options also hearken back to the grandeur of past eras, and visitors will enjoy staying at a boutique hotel Bali. With sumptuous interiors and world-class services, guests will be spoilt at a Bali luxury hotel such as the L Hotel Seminyak located in one of the most elite neighbourhoods in the island. The grandeur of Bali’s Kehen Temple is simply unsurpassed of all the ancient spirituality centres gracing the island’s landscape. One of the largest temples on Bali, it stands as a stirring testament to the skilled ancient stone carvers of the region. Founded in the 11th century, its star attraction comes in the form of a unique procession titled Gebog Domas, which is a communal festival of offering various tributes to the local gods at the temple. Kehen Temple is an intriguing locale, as it is one of the few temples in the region which still observes ancient rituals of this sort. The temple itself boasts three courtyards, each of which are graced by a towering and ornate entranceway that simply transports one back in time when one crosses the thresholds of these magnificent entry points. Boasting the gorgeous architecture of ancient Hindu temples dotting the Indonesian landscape, Kehen Temple is a must-experience feature for spiritual tourists.
