    Why to visit this place

    Pura Besakih, often known as Bali's "Mother Temple," is a magnificent Hindu temple complex nestled on the slopes of Mount Agung in Bali. The complex, which includes 23 temples, is thought to be at least 2000 years old. Nestled amongst rice terraces, slopes, and streams, this resort is surrounded by nature. The serene atmosphere of Besakih Temple only contributes to the temple's reputation.

    Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu are the main deities of this lovely temple. Around 86 temple shrines make up this massive temple complex. There are three great temples dedicated to the Hindu trinity, namely Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva.

    The compass of points between the four temples is claimed to depict the location where Lord Vishnu descended on Earth, and it serves as proof of how divine powers interact with the universe. Pura Batu Madeg is located in the north, Pura Kiduling Kreteg is located in the south, Pura Gelap is located in the east, and Pura Ulun Kulkul is located in the west.
