Uluwatu : Ode to the Gods

Places of worship exudes sacred and solemn atmosphere as Pura Luhur Uluwatu.

This place of worship is a Balinese Hindu temple situated atop a cliff in a densely forested area. 

The area is apt for its purpose as it is closely tied with nature and the surroundings are serene.

It is a perfect place for meditation or reflection while being lulled into the deepest recesses of the soul by the sound of the sea.

It is a poetic place where psalms, mantras or odes can be so solemnly offered to gods. 

Perfect panorama for worship.
