A look around the mesmerizing Pura Samuan Tiga, or Temple of the Meeting of the Three. It is one of the oldest temples in Bali and houses ancient sculptures of Shiva and Buddha. The temple was entirely deserted when I visited except for a few friendly High Priests who pointed me in the right direction. Despite its name the temple actually has seven courtyards, instead of the usual three. However, there was a meeting of three here between leaders of three conflicting villages that settled their differences at the temple and launched a time of peace in Ubud. After the meeting, it was decided that Balinese kingdoms should have three main temples to represent mountains, villages, and sea. Three also represents the Hindu trinity of Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma, locally known as Tri Murti.
