|Bali - Ganesha|
Indonesia was a Hindu nation before the people converted to Islam and Hindu temples are therefore found across the country. Bali, which remains almost entirely Hindu continues to worship in the Hindu way. They follow the Vedas, hold pujas and worship Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. Balinese Hindus are however mainly Shiva worshipers and not surprisingly Ganesh is a popular deity and his idols are often found during excavations and also in temples where worship continues to be held.
One of the most popular Ganesh murtis is found in Ubud, a place of many Hindu shrines. Hindus revere the idol and offer it worship. Bolo Ubud waale Ganesh ji ki jai!
