Kecak and Fire Dance, Uluwatu Temple 27 May 2013

The charges to the temple. 
For Kecak and Fire Dance, the tickets are sold inside the temple.

Observing the locals praying.

Uluwatu temple has a very stunning view of the sea as it is situated at the cliff. 

A prayer is conducted before the Kecak and Fire Dance starts.

The music is made by a chanting of seventy men. There is no orchestra or gamelan like in other traditional Balinese dance. There are four acts altogether. Briefly, it is about the demon King Rahwana's intention to steal Sita, Rama's wife. Rama and his brother, Laksamana set out to rescue Sita, with the help of Hanoman.
