Uluwatu : Ode to the Gods

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

Perfect panorama for worship.

Pura Luhur Uluwatu is indeed a poetic place for worship, where psalms, sutras, mantras, or odes are aptly offered to gods in eloquent sanctity.
