Essence Temple and Blessing
Balinese locals are deeply spiritual people, with the roots of the island's beliefs and traditions running deep in local lifestyles. Today get a hands-on look at one of the best examples of Balinese spirituality in the village of Sebatu, about an hour outside of South Bali. By car, head out from your hotel and arrive in this charming area within Ubud. Home to a stunning collection of still-operating temples, follow your guide's lead to explore these structures and learn about how they still play an important role in the lives of pious locals. After an illuminating guided wander, travel uphill and deeper into the village to visit the site of the area's holy water. Here your guide will help you put on a traditional Balinese sarong and lead you in how to pray to the gods. With each offering having a different colour of distinct significance, learn about how each hue represents a different prayer. After the procession, dip into the holy water - considered an important cleansing ritual - and wrap up your day with lunch at a local restaurant.
