You can visit other temples in Besakih Temple , but many of their inner courtyards are closed to the public as they’re reserved for pilgrims. Besakih temple  is the only temple open to every devotee from any caste groups. This is because of its nature as the primal centre of all ceremonial activities.

The Besakih's name is come from the word of Basukithe old language from Sanskrit Wasuki, and then it become the Ancient Java Language. In this Sanskrit, the Basuki means congratulation.

The Balinese tradition of salt farming dates back almost a thousand years, but has only recently gained recognition from fascinated tourists and salt connoisseurs. Both tourists and consumers are willing to pay for natural sea salt which is harvested from the top surface of crystallized, unspoiled, sea water by the small farmers of Kusamba village, a Balinese traditional fishing village.
Many generations have benefited from Kusamba’s unique geographical location, using their conventional method of harvesting, to produce natural salt with a truly distinctive texture and subtle flavour. Salt farmers live together in modest huts on the beach displaying the strength required to persevere under these difficult conditions. This could be the last generation of salt farmers on Bali.
