The Balinese village is typically host to a set of three temples called kahyangan tiga. Each related to a focal aspect of the village symbolic life. Instead of being closed, roof structures, the temples are open spaces, demarcated only by wall and carved gates, with trees alongside thatched shrines in their inside.
    The temples are the heart of the Balinese life and are celebrated its anniversary in every 210 days.

    Adding to the beauty and wealth of the Balinese  culture is its dance, which is performed during temple festivals and its ceremonies of the cycle of life and death. Dances are so much a part of Balinese daily rituals performances that visitors see in hotels, restaurants are just a fraction of the wealth of Balinese Dance.

    Balinese Dances are inspirable from religion. A small offering of food and flowers must precede even dances for tourist. Before performing many dancers pray at their family shrines, appealing for holy inspiration from the gods.
