The BESAKIH Story

Besakih Temple is a pura complex in Besakih, which towers on the slopes of the most important and most spectacular volcano, Mount Agung. It is the most important, largest, and holiest Hindu temple in Bali. The temple itself was likely completed around 1200, but the site has been considered holy and worshipped since megalithic times, thousands of years ago.

Each year there are at least seventy festivals held at the complex, since almost every shrine celebrates a yearly anniversary. These festivals, called Odalan, are an occasion when the Hindu village comes together, inviting the gods to visit them for three or more days, and performing religious services with refreshments and entertainment.

We made the "Besakih" bracelet in honor of the temple and of the yearly Odalan. The main colors, gold like the iridescent tiger eye gem, and black like the deep black onyx, reflect the same colors of the complex, solemn and mystical like this holy location.
