13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Prayer & Volcanos

Climb to the top of the Volcano Batur early in the morning and you'll be surrounded by panoramic views of the Bali and its other incredible Volcanoes. In this picture, you can see Mount Agung - the holiest point in Balinese Hinduism. It is also home to the important Mother Temple of Besakih. Balinese often make the trip up to the top of this particular volcano to prayer and provide offerings during ceremonies.
