Bali is home to numerous temples and shrines as it has a large population of Hindus and Buddhists. Although they are mainly similar in style and architecture to each other they also have unique features that have amazed travellers from around the world. One of the most interesting temples in the region is Petitenget Temple in Seminyak. Constructed in the fifteenth century this temple has an interesting tale attached to its inception. In it, Dang Hyanh Dhwjendra, the priest who built the temple had been walking in the woods when he saw a fierce spirit who gave him a box and asked the priest to take care of it. The priest hence built a shrine to guard this box that later expanded in to a temple.
Another reason for the temple’s popularity is the beautiful beach ceremonies conducted here. The temple is surrounded by tourist villas and hotels that provide convenient beachside accommodation to travellers to the area. There is parking right in front of the temple guarded by local security and during the evening you would see crowds jogging or walking.
Bali is known as the Island of the Gods and the title is no exaggeration. Bali is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. These beaches along with Bali’s breathtaking landscapes are a heavenly experience to travellers who seek a truly relaxing getaway. This beautiful island is also home to many historic attractions.
