The Mother Temple & Balinese Villages Private tour
Bali is packed with religious monuments at almost every turn. But on this private tour you'll visit the most important of them all, The Mother Temple of Besakih. And it doesn't stop there – you'll also visit Tirta Gangaa, Kertagosa and much more. We'll start the morning with a visit to the holiest of Hindu shrines, The Mother Temple. With the smoking crater of Mount Agung as a backdrop, you'll have the chance to marvel at its intricate stone carvings and its sprawling complex of 23 temples. Then, it's on to the water gardens of Tirta Gangaa. Here, you'll take time to wander its oasis of spring-fed pools and ponds.After lunch in Karangasem, you'll stop at Tenganan village to see craftsmen at work on handmade textiles before rounding off with a visit to Kerta Gosa. An 18th Century courthouse, it houses Bali's answer to the Sistine Chapel. It's a perfect way to end a blissful day of Balinese exploration.
