Monday Mystery Photo – Last time Bali

Every second Monday, I post a photo of a ‘mystery’ location, and sometimes a mystery object.

I invite you to leave a comment if you think you know the location, or what the mystery object might be.

If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog in a post the following Monday, when the answer is revealed. Comments will be released later in the week, (Thursday Australian E.S.T.) so as not to spoil the fun for latecomers, to this post.

Ted from recipereminiscing.wordpress.com has been a welcome regular commenter on Monday Mystery, but this week’s photo is one he won’t be racking his brain about, as it is his own photo that he has submitted for us to ponder about.

Can you guess the location?

Last Week’s Photo

The Photo depicts a water garden called Tirta Gangga and it’s a former royal palace in eastern Bali, Indonesia, about 5 kilometres from Karangasem, near Abang. It is noted for its water palace, owned by Karangasem Royal Family. Let us all hope the tourists return to Bali soon, as the rumbling Volcano has scarred off many holidaymakers and the Balinese small business are heavily reliant on income from tourists.

Correct guesses on the location came from:

Mel and Suan from travelingmatters.net/

Lorelle from amindfultravellerblog.wordpress.com/

Well done! Great geographic knowledge!

This is the final mystery photo for 2017, although I will post the answer to this photo on 1st February.

January 1st is an extra special day in relation to this photo, although just why that is, you will have to wait until the next post, or ask Ted, of course!

Monday Mystery Photo – Last week Indonesia

Each Monday, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object.

I invite you to leave a comment, if you think you know the location, or what it is. Comments are held back until the latter part of the week so that there is no spoiler for people who wish to guess the location, without using Google supports. 

If you do guess correctly, I will link back to your blog when the answer is revealed, the following Monday. Guest Submissions are very welcome!

 This week’s Mystery Photo

Submitted from blogger, Cindy Knoke who you will find here

Where is this natural attraction located?

As always, Pingbacks go to correct guesses on the following Monday!


Last weeks Mystery Photo

This wonderful mystery photo seen below, submitted by Travel bloggers, Mel and Suan, from Traveling Matters, tricked many of our seasoned Monday Mystery Photo contributors, who thought, as I did, that it was located in Cambodia.

The temple certainly looks similar to Angkor Wat, but the thick jungle background is missing.  As Drake suggested, the correct location is the Prambanan Temple Compounds at Yogyakarta, in Java, the main Island of Indonesia  and another UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Indonesia has a lot of Hindu temples dating back over 1000 years, some, like this one, have been restored after suffering numerous earthquakes. 

You can read more about this one here.  but Mel will tell us a little more:

“Prambanan is a Hindu temple complex like Angkor in Cambodia (initially until conversion to Buddhism), hence they look so similar. The narrative is how the Hindu religion came to the Indonesian archipelago and was there for the longest time till the 14th century with the arrival of Islam.”

Mel & Suan

Thanks so much Mel and Suan for a great photo. I hope you will find another photo to test our knowledge on a future Monday Mystery Post.
