Enjoy a temple anniversary celebration near Kuta - AsiaRooms.com

April 29, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
AsiaRooms.com divulges anyone who has booked accommodation in Kuta at the beginning of June is in luck because one of the island's most famous temples will be holding its anniversary celebrations on June 1st.

The Uluwatu Temple, located just a short distance from Kuta, attracts thousands of visitors each year, largely because of its stunning cliff top location.

Dating back to the 11th century, this religious building has been used by those wanting to pay their respects to the gods.

The temple itself is carved out of the limestone rock on the cliff and is particularly beautiful to visit at sunset.

As part of the anniversary celebrations, which are held to mark the date on which the temple was founded, the building will be decorated with ornaments made from flowers, palm leaves, bamboo sticks and flags.

Visitors will also note that there are more offerings to the gods than is usual at a temple in Bali, with extra food and candles typically on display.

Anyone who makes the trip to the Uluwatu Temple will find plenty to keep them occupied, whether there are celebrations taking place or not.

Tourists are often amazed by the archaeology at the religious site, with the winged entrance gate just one feature that catches many people's eyes.
