Information about place
Besakih is known as the Mother Temple of Bali and is simply the most important temple for the whole of the island. It's actually more like a complex of temples in one very large compound and its known and loved for is its dramatic location on the southern slopes of Sacred Mount Agung.
Jan 1975. Road building using people! Besaki temple. Lake Bedugal and temple. Probably the new road over the mountains from Bedugal to Lovina. In those days no drivers just public buses full of villagers going to market with goats and pigs and chooks all in cane cages and bags. Betal nut dripping down a lot of older peoples' chins! Loved the way the buses nearly slid off mountain bends.
