Travel Photo: Balinese Temple Architecture

Balinese temples are very interesting to look at as Balinese Hinduism has ensured that the architecture is not really Hindu style architecture, but a mix of local designs too. This has led to tiered temple roofs, some vibrant doors, some very intricately carved sculptures and designs and overall an experience that is truly unique to Bali.

A door in Tirta Empul Temple, Bali, Indonesia
In this case, I saw this lovely door at the Pura Tirtha Empul temple near Ubud in Central Bali. Not only was the door eye-catching with its lovely orange color, but the two intricately sculpted barongs guarding it added to the aura. These mythological creatures and the other creatures on top and to the side of this door created a sense of mystery, which gave it a special look. One can find many such special looks in many temples across Bali.
