14th century Hindu temple found in Bali

Construction work on the island of Bali has led to the discovery of a 14th century Hindu temple; the largest such temple found on the island.

Construction workers were digging a new drainage basin near a Hindu learning center on Jalan Trengguli, in East Denpasar, when their tools struck a large stone structure one metre underground, the Jakarta Globe reported.

The crew then excavated a large stone plate, the first of many discovered at the site.

“I immediately reported the finding to the [local] archaeology office,” said Ida Resi Bujangga, the owner of the center, yesterday.
