An amazing trip

And then the serpent. Because according to legend, in the depths of the great mountain, the darkest of the grotto, lives a giant snake, Basuki, a spirit that feeds on bats hanging from walls and ceilings. The snake was not able to see, but the thousands of bats that literally filled the cavern walls did see us. And the faithful who at the time held a church service in this temple that much with more than a thousand years old and is essential in Balinese life for its important role in the rituals associated with life and death. The heart of the complex, no doubt, is the cave that juts over thirty kilometers into the mountain to reach nothing other than Besakih, the largest complex of temples of Bali.
