Type of place
A cone-shaped volcano that is recognized as the highest point in Bali, known for its eruptions and impact on the climate.
Mount Agung holds great significance for the Balinese, as it is considered a sacred place and a symbol of the god Shiva. Locals conduct religious ceremonies and rituals on its slopes to honor the gods and seek protection. Mount Agung is also known as a place where gods descend to earth.
Despite its religious and cultural importance, Mount Agung also poses a certain threat due to its activity. It has erupted several times in the past, with the most powerful eruption occurring in 1963, destroying several villages and killing around 1,500 people. In recent years, Mount Agung has shown increased activity, leading to the evacuation of locals and the temporary closure of some tourist sites.
