    Background: A BEAUTIFUL TEMPLE SOUTH OF BALI IS LOCATED ON A TINY ISLAND AND CAN ONLY BE REACHED BY WALKING ACROSS AT LOW TIDE. WHEN THE TIDE IS HIGH THE ISLAND BECOMES SUBMERGED AND ONLY THE TEMPLE REMAINS VISIBLE --- STANDING UP FROM THE SEA LIKE SOME UNDERWATER KINGDOM.

    EVERY SIX MONTHS A BIG RELIGIOUS CEREMONY IS HELD INSIDE THE TEMPLE AND HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE ARRIVE WITH THEIR OFFERINGS. ON THIS OCCASION THE DEVOTEES COULD NOT CROSS TO THE TEMPLE BECAUSE OF A HIGH TIDE SO THE CEREMONY WAS HELD ACROSS THE BAY ON TABANAN'S BEACH.
