Travel Indonesia Haiku - Bali's Giant Gods


at every road junction
a giant hindu god
to catch your eyes

at every road junction
a giant hindu god
to guide your way

at every road junction
a story of the
hindu god

Bali has a lot of giant statues of hindu gods as well as the nation's heroes. They are usually at the junction of roads which add to the allure of the island as the carvings are very well done.
