BajraSandhi-Bali, Indonesia - 18th March 2013

By: Linda Fdph

Hello Mom

Its a rainy day , and almost the strom, but we spend a little time to visit Bajra Sandhi Monument
The picture maybe not so good,because its a cloudy and some scenes taken during the drizzling rain.
About the Bajra Sandhi itself ,  the architecture  is very unique, taking the shape of Bajra or Genta, a bell that used by Hindu Priests during religious ceremonies. It is also a symbol of the bond between males and females that creates prosperity according to the epic that tells the story of the Gods struggle to get the Water of Eternity.
