Built in 1634, this was the royal temple of the Mengwi kingdom that lasted until 1891. This view is of the front gate.
Around 93 percent of the population is Hindu. So, the temples I saw were all Hindu, I believe.

Fantastic view and capture Steve. Superb framing and so beautiful tones !

Nicely done, the almost-perfect vertical cut of the gate with the structure behind, almost looks like a collage!

Jolie capture ! Je te souhaite une agréable journée

At first I thought of a giant mirror placed at the top of the stairs. Since I am unable to understand the picture :-))))

@Veronique: It's a little confusing. The stairs lead through the gate which has a roofed shrine like structure behind it. Behind that is yet another gate.
Awesome place to visit especially with a camera.

Wow, I love the framing here and the people through the doorway. I thought I was looking into a mirror at first. :-)) Great shot, Steve!

Fantastic. They look like ghosts.

This beautifully framed shot has a wonderfully surreal feel to it Steve! The people moving in the middle space between the gate and temple have an almost ghost-like feel to them! Nicely captured! ;-)

The gate is so amazing.

The interesting design gives it a beautiful skyline outline. Nice detail of this very old, venerable place.
