Island of the Gods

Bali is an island in devotion. Predominantly Hindu, the warm and welcoming Balinese people are steeped in worship of the gods. Offerings are made daily at every corner from the homes to street shrines to the large temples.

Balinese Hinduism is quite different than that found in India. When the Indians came to Bali centuries ago they brought their religion and culture with them. This was then overlaid on to the existing strong religious beliefs that the Balinese people already had thus creating a unique version of Hinduism common only to this island.

With beautiful beaches, lush landscapes topped with mountains and volcanoes, Bali is a paradise island that also features a refined art and dance culture.
