Pura Besakih

The mother load! Pura Besakih is considered the holiest temple in Bali and the mother of all temples ( Besakih means mother in bahasa). This Pura is one of the oldest in Bali. It’s revered for its importance and being over 1000 years old. It consists of 23 separate temples. The temples main axis  align with the peak of Mt Agung . When it it erupted in 1963  the lava flow missed the temple by meters. This has been seen as a sign from the gods of the significance of this site. Lord have mercy!
