Bali Day 2: Ubud Day Tour

by Shasta Paravati June. 01, 2019 411 views

This day was filled with sight seeing of Ubud - the main tourist and cultural center of Bali. I didn't stay in this part of Bali - thank goodness. It's overrun by western tourist and its just a no for me. However, a day trip was perfect. Sights of interest in this post: Barong Kris Dance, Batuan Temple, Tegenungan Waterfall, and Saraswati Temple. Enjoy!

Barong Kris Dance: The traditional Balinese mythical dance between good and evil. http://www.bali-indonesia.com/magazine/barong-and-kris-dance.htm

Batuan Temple

I was told that the stones wearing cloth are "active" with energy. When the cloth is off, the stone is not in active use for protection.

Stones no longer in use for the temple. However, the still have 'power' and are retired here.
