Unlike all the other islands of the Indonesian archipelago, Bali has stayed true to its Hindu origins. Once upon a time all of Indonesia – Sumatra, Java, Borneo, Sulawesi and all the other three thousand-odd islands – were Hindu but today, most of Indonesia is firmly Islamic and has been for several centuries. In the people’s mild disposition, their lifestyle, the way they dress, their relationship with their ancestors and their architecture and design, Bali is unique. A rich artistic and cultural tradition has survived here, but the architectural tradition is in danger of dying out. Few people realise that Bali is divided into north and south by a massive mountain range that rises to the not insubstantial height of seven thousand feet. It’s a spectacular and often overlooked part of Bali’s geography.
