In ancient times, Bali was the colony of Java kingdom, Majapahit, the greatest historical empire throughout the region. This intertwined the strong influence of Javanese culture into Bali’s. Most of the architectures, dances theatres, and literature were introduced by the Kawi scripts. In the late 15th century, political changes pushed Javanese aristocracies, monks and artists to find refuge in Bali which led to the embellishment of Hinduism on the island and the depiction of Padmasana shrines, as an honour of the Unity Supreme God (Acintya or Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa).
These sacred Balinese temples are build based on the unity of natural elements – water (Amarta) and soil (Terra). Structures are made by terra, a symbol of basic life, one of Majapahit remarkable technique manifestation on architecture. Whilst water is a symbol of life and healing in Balinese culture. This unity gives balance to one’s spirit, life and surroundings.
