Petitenget Temple Peti Tenget temple and beach is located at Banjar Batubelig, Kerobokan village kecamatan Kuta. To reach this object by motor vehicle from Denpasar, go westwards more or less 10 km then turn south, or to the north from Kuta following Raya Seminyak Street. Peti Tenget temple was built in the 15th century and it used to be a plot of extraordinary holy (Tenget) land, bush growth and dwelled by the I Bhuta Ijo demon that was trusted by Holy priest, Dang Hyang Nirartha to safeguard his holy box. The story told that when the priest stayed at south port (now Uluwatu), a man from Kerobokan village came asking the priest for help. He wished to cultivate the plot of land without feeling fear. The priest suggested that the people build a temple dedicated to god ‘Labuhan Masceti’ and a single closed shrine (Pagedongan) for Bhuta Ijo as a place to safeguard the priest’s box (Peti). From that time on, the temple was named Peti Tenget Temple.

split gate and a 16-meter high tower inside the temple are constructed much like ‘Candi’ in Java. The 64 stone seats, similar to megalithic ancestral shrines, commemorate warriors who died in battle. Taman Ayun Temple ‘Taman Ayun’ means beautiful garden, located in the village of Mengwi, 18 km west of Denpasar. It is indeed one of Bali’s most pic-

turesque temples. The king of Mengwi, I Gusti Agung Anom, built its stately proportioned courtyards and large surrounding moat in the year 1634. Containing both the Royal family ancestral shrines and the storied MERU shrines to the major deities, Taman Ayun became the main temple for the ancient kingdom of Mengwi. BTN (BTN/*)

Uluwatu Temple At the westernmost tip of Bukit Peninsula, this is one of Bali’s nine ‘directional’ Kayangan Jagat temples. The location is dramatic, perched on the edge of a high cliff with a picturesque sunset view. The temple was first used for worship by the 11th century holy priest, Empu Kuturan, who came to Bali to bring religious law and to form Desa Adat (traditional villages). The area where spectacular sunsets can be viewed is filled with the scent of frangipani blossoms and is also the home of friendly monkeys.

Sadha Temple This temple, with decorative carvings, is famous for its intricacy and ingenuity. Dating from the Majapahit period, this originally was an old dynastic sanctuary (prasada) of Mengwi Royalty. The

Nusa Dua It means ‘two islands’ in Bahasa Indonesia. This is one of the premier resort areas in the world. The area is located 20 minutes south of the Ngurah Rai International Airport, Denpasar and is a short drive to many of Bali’s attractions and beautiful beaches. This is the home of many of Bali’s world-class luxury resort hotels.

Legian, Seminyak, Petitenget Beach These beautiful beaches are several kilometers north of Kuta. Like its neighboring beaches, these offer a refuge for surfers. There are also many facilities for tourists as the result of the Kuta north expansion. Sangeh “Monkey Forest” Sangeh is the village whose northern part covers about 14 hectares of a holy homogeny forest of ‘Pala’ trees with hundreds of monkey inhabitants. The trees cannot be found on any other part of Bali and their existence in this village remains a mystery. Look for a lovely mossy temple, which is hidden amongst the tall and gracious ‘Pala’ trees.
