Dating from the ninth century, Jatiluwih’s undulating rice paddies in Jatiluwih are perched on Bali’s second highest peak. Sacred and holy, the land sits at the feet of Mount Batukaru.
Sit back and take in the total vision. It is easy to appreciate the presence of the Rice Goddess, Dewi Sri, the protector of rice fields. At various times of the rice-growing cycle, you will see lurching triangles created by rice stalks straining to reach the outer world in her honor.
A local guide will show you around, so you get more than just the pretty photos. Visit a village, follow the production process, and find serenity in this holy place.
