Hey, Travelers Al Shahriat Karim is back with Bali Tour blog. Travelling abroad is a unique moment of excitement for me, and I learned a lot during travel. I am honoured to be a Muslim, but seeing thousands of years old Hindu culture on the island of Bali, Indonesia. Bali a country with over 225 million Muslim population. There is a lot to know about the religion of the people there and the spread of hatred in the name of religion in India. There I found a wonderful atmosphere of culture and tolerance. There are as many Hindu people who read and worship the Ramayana and Mahabharata as Muslims believe and there is a ban on cow killing because the cow is holly animal for Hindu. When I landed at the Ngurah Rai International Airport and went to the immigration counter, I noticed the logo and the name of the national airline of Indonesia and it was the name of a vehicle of Hindu’s Lord Vishnu “Garuda Indonesia airlines” The airport also many various symbols of Hindu culture. As a result of a curious curiosity to convey more Hindu culture on foreign soil, I started a conversation with my friend Ketut Lanus Surya. Talking to them, I learned a lot about Bali Hindutva.
There is a caste system as there was in the ancient Indian period. There are four variants of Brahman, Kshatriya, Vyshya and Shudra. According to the caste system, there are different temples of different castes and in the temples of each other, there is a prohibition of entry. In the meantime, I was amazed to see a huge statue of Ram to build the ramsetu with a monkey. I asked my friend with a curious price what is this when he has some TITI BANDA STATUE. By telling them honestly I think you know what this is. Bali Hindus make CANANG SARI the way you plant flowers here in the office, temple and home every day. It contains 03 item which is the object of the Hindu God Trimurti. The symbol of the lime god Shiva is the same as the symbol of betel god Vishnu and one leaf Lord Brahma, it is covered with the character of Palm and decorated with various flowers around it.in local language they call offering. The Hindu temple here looks different than the Indian temple. In India, there is a high Shikharbandh temple. The temple of Bali is very spacious and all its doors are beautifully decorated to pray.
There are three objects found in the temple, the shrine, the Meru tower or pelinggih meru, which is made of a wooden pagoda. Meru tower or pelinggih meru depicts the holy mountain of Hindu culture, Meru and the third one awakes to pray. There is idol worship in this temple. There is no cult or individual worshiper here. Those people are forbidden to wear short clothes on the religious temple so there were sarong wear is Compulsory. A Sarong will provide from there on rent or free of cost at outside of the temple. The Brahmins built a 07-marine temple around the island of Bali called PURA SEGERA. The island was created to worship the god of the sea with the belief that it protects the demons.
Name of 07 sea temple

👉Pura Gede Perancak

I saw the statue of Garuda Wisnu Kencana 60 meters lower than the statue of unity in India. According to legend, Garud brings nectar from heaven to free his mother from the bondage of Nago and his mother and this 122-meter high tomb are built on which Lord Vishnu becomes a vehicle. All these hold the idol of dvarapala outside the office. He has a weapon in his hand that protects his house from the finesse/magic of the office.
I visited the museum and drama school there and also saw people preparing for the drama of Ramayana and Mahabharata. One wonders where the names of the rooms and the theatre were kept from the characters and places of the Ramayana Mahabharata. here are beautiful beaches located on the Pandava beach on the Pandavas, the great characters of the Mahabharata and there are five Pandavas along with a statue of Mother Kunti. My friend also saw me 20000 IDR currency which had a Ganesha on their currency. In Street of Kuta and radio lots of play Hindi romantic song, which feel real India. hats the beauty of multiculturalism. Despite all exceptions in history, an ancient civilization like India could flourish for so long, just because of respecting the values of other civilizations. So be proud of everything which is good for humankind and nature. Be it any religion. This reminds me of my trip to Bhangarh, Rajishatan. The majestic Angkor wat! It felt like a home away from home!!!
Above all, #stayhome #staysafe Goodbye!
