Toya Bungkah.

It is Spot of Hot spring water that people believe can cure some diseases. The temperature is about 15-25 degree Celsius. This Hot Spring Water is surrounded by ancient villages such as Kedisan, Buahan, Trunyan and Soongan.

Toya Bungkah already known by anthropologists in year 1930, then in year 1976, Toya Bungkah promoted again by The International Association for Art and The Future which is coordinated by Prof.DR. S. Takdir Alisyahbana.

Then nowadays, Toya Bungkah becomes very famous and the promotion has been success.

Batur Volcano

This volcano is still active. You can see a spectacular view from above. When you come to this place you may pay for some charge to enter both of these places, Toya Bungkah and Batur Vulcano. But it is quiet cheap, only 7.500 rupiahs when I came there. And there also a museum called, Batur Vulcano Museum. In some restaurants provide some information about the volcano, the time when it was erupted and other information about it.

In this spot you also can buy some Balinese gift for your family and friends, u can also bargain here for a reasonable price.

You can see the view during your lunch time; there are a lot of restaurants, so you do not have to worry about food. All food taste very delicious, really great. That is why I recommended you to try it!

The Miracle of Tanah Lot

Tanah Lot is one of the most famous temples in Bali. The picturesque location makes it a popular tourist spot.

It is located in Tabanan Regency at Beraban village, Kediri. It is about 30 kilometers from Denpasar. You can go there by motor bicycle or car. Or if u stay at the Tabanan city, you can only ride your bicycle in your relax time. It is quiet closed only about 13 kilometers from Tabanan city.

If there was a high tide, the temple seems like float above the sea. Tanah Lot has known as tourism object in Bali which is famous of it is beautiful sunset.

There are two temples, one is stand on a big stone and the other one is stand on the bank.

Tanah Lot temple is a part of Sad Kahyangan Temples, that is some temples that becoming joints of Bali islands. Tanah Lot is a sea temple, is a spot for pray to the gods that protect the sea.

According to the legend, this temple built by Dang Hyang Nirartha in 15 centuries. Then his shawl turns into a sea snake that protects the temple. Nowadays this snake still exists and this Holy sea snake has a flat tail. The snake colored black and yellow. It is has a very strong poison, even 3 times stronger than poison of the Cobra.

But do not worry this Holy snake is tame, there is a man beside the snake that will help you if you want to touch this holy snake. While you touch you can also praying and wish for something you. Hopefully your wish will come true.

You can also pray and get the holy spring water there, that comes up from the ground under the temple that stand on the big stone.

Many tourists said that Tanah Lot Temple is a miracle. How can we imagine two temples are standing on unbelievable spot and how the holy spring water comes up above the ground under the temple that stand on the big stone.

So if you come to Bali, you have to go there to watch very closely what the God has created, this is a miracle, I believe in that. Do you?
