Subak (irrigation) system in Bali is not a mere irrigation system. The water that irrigates the paddy fields comes from the water temple surrounded by the paddy fields.
While water holds a spiritual meaning for Balinesse, to purify, cleansing, to become a better being.... hence the whole Subak system has the same spiritual meaning as a whole.
The long awaited inscription for Bali into the WHS has finaly come. This place is arguably one of the most wonderful places ever existed. Where you could feel different while in different part of the island... and one couldnt get enough of Bali for sure..

Besakih is the mother temple in Bali. Just like the name, it is the most important temple here. Resides peacefully in the southwest bavel of Mount Agung, the eastern part of Bali.
The panorama surrounding the temple complex is fantastic. And the sacredness of the place, really make people at ease and think: this is where some peace of mind can still be found..
