Bali, island of the ten thousand temples


Bali is referred to in many ways. Where ever you go in Bali, you will see Hindu temples everywhere. Therefore, it won't be surprising that one of the names for Bali is 'island of the ten thousand temples'. Other names are 'island of the gods' and 'sorga duniawi' (heaven on earth). I'm happy to be able to live here.

The picture below was taken in the district of Mengwi in the south of Bali, showing some of the shrines of the Pura Taman Ayun, a beautiful garden temple.
