Mount Agung

Posted by
: Helen : (who is currently photographing in, Australia) on 2 April 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

The highest land feature on the island of Bali, Indonesia, is Mount Agung or Gunung Agung is often covered in cloud. It is in fact an active volcano that erupted back in 1963-1964.

A significant holy Hindu temple, the Pura Besakih, is situated on the side of the volcano "as the Balinese believe tit is a replica of Meru, the central axis of the universe."

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!
