Past Historical Links

As we all know, India and Indonesia have been having trade and cultural links for the last 2000 years. The start was made by Indian traders, who were the first to arrive in Indonesia in the 1st Century. Hinduism and Buddhism were next to follow. Ships used to start from the port of Pradeep in Orissa to Bali, Java and Sumatra. The voyage is known as Bali Yatra.
Even today every year during the full moon day in Nov-Dec(Kartika )a festival called Bali Yatra is celebrated on the banks of River Mahanadi in Orissa to commemorate the voyages to Indonesia.

AND OF COURSE THE GUIDED TOUR IN BALI.
DO NOT HESITATE TO ASK FOR CLARIFICATIONS.

 

Bali:


This unique island is Indonesia's most popular tourist spot. It has thousands of Hindu temples. It has a population of 90% Hindus, plus Muslims, Buddhists and Christians.
There is so much to see in Bali, that one would go crazy. Everyday there is some temple ceremony. It is indeed correctly called "Paradise Island".
Practically every person is either an artist, painter, or doing sculpture in stone, wood or silver. He has to be something to gain respect in the community.
Denpasar is the capital of Bali.

(ca. 12 hour trip)

We begin our tour with a visit to Bali's "Mother Temple". High on the slopes of Bali's Mount Agung sits Pura Besakih, widely referred to as the "Mother Temple" of Hinduism in Bali.

 

 Besakih Temple is the largest of the island's 11,000 or so Hindu temples; its 35 shrines and halls draw devotees from all over Bali in massive numbers each year.

 

 The world is lucky to have Besakih. In 1963 Mount Agung, a volcano, erupted and destroyed several nearby villages. Besakih was untouched.

 

If you wish, praying with a Hindu Balinese priest can be arranged for about 15 minutes time in the main courtyard of Pura Besakih (no extra charges).

 

Proced to Penulisan hill which is located at 1745m above sea level, approximately 3km from Kintamani (a district well known for its magnificent views of Lake and Mount Batur). Around 9th century, Tegeh Koripan Temple was built on Bukit Penulisan

 

 It is also known as Puncak Penulisan Temple since it is located on the peak of Bukit Penulisan. It is the highest temple in Bali.

 

An old stairway leads to Puncak Penulisan Temple, the ancient temple.

 During a clear day, the view is breathtaking.

 

The temple is even more romantic and mysterious when covered in a foggy mist.

 

After lunch in Kintamani, proceed to Ubud, the artists’ village. Explore the different art galleries, the art market, the village temple and monkey sanctuary.
