Governor Pastika made the proposal on Tuesday in response to pros and cons listed against the provisions of the National Tourism Strategic Areas (KSPN), Indonesian news agency ANTARA reported.
“It is necessary for us to maintain the purity and sanctity of the temples and thus we support the governor’s proposal because it will not diminish the attractiveness of Bali,” local HIP spokesman Amos Lilo said on Wednesday.
“The proposal is good for the Balinese people in realising the temples are a sacred place for them to pray and not to be commercialised by irresponsible parties,” he said.
Lilo cited the Tanah Lot temple in Tabanan district and Taman Ayun temple in Badung district which have retained their status as a tourist attraction despite not allowing tourists to enter the buildings.
