The Flower Temple
At the core of Balinese Hinduism
The Flower Temple is dedicated to the universe of flowers, in accordance with the animistic principles in Balinese Hinduism that every form of life is of divine origin, worthy of a temple.
The water, the cradle of all life, flows along its flank, accompanied by 2 small dragon snakes.
The Candi Kurung, the supreme edifice in lava stone from the holiest of mountains, Mount Agung, represents the sky and the wind.
At the foot of the temple the playground of the Asian Otters is on the one side and the Meerkats on the other.
