“Gunung Kawi in Tampaksiring Village - 11th Century candi (pronounced chandi, meaning tombs) of a Royal Balinese Family. Archeologists believe the candies commemorate the King, Anak Wungsu, and his Queens. There are three sets of tombs: Royal Tombs (King and 4 favourite wives), Queens Tombs and the 10th Tomb. All of the candi are carved from the riverside cliff face and have beautiful reliefs of temple facades. The candi don’t have any bones or ashes, but seem to have been erected to complete the religious rites of honouring the spirits of the deceased. (30 minutes north/east of Ubud)”
