as a shrine for the worship and pacification of the Gods of the great
Mt. Agung, Baliís highest volcano, it has developed over the centuries
to its present complex which contains nearly 30 full temples, and the
Gelgel Dynasty of rulers carried on this responsibility from the 15th
century on, adding a series of small temples in honor of the deified rulers
as they passed away. The provincial and national government of Bali now
take care of the upkeep of Besakih, and all Balinese look upon it as the
most holy of all holy places on their island.
