Pura Agung Batan Bingin Jul 21, 2013
Pura Agung Batan Bingin was the temple that I found accidentally and had better experience than with the most of the better know temples. I got there few days after their festival and they still had many ornaments and statues dressed and covered with flowers. There is few beautifully ornate temples and small squares around the complex. One of the door entrances has really different statues with the monster holding the baby and stepping over the skull and bones… Do not forget to wear sarongs or longer pants and be careful not to the disturb the people praying and going with their religious business.

Throughout Bali almost every temple has dressed statues and the colors differ usually according to the character of the statue. Most of the dressed statues are ones of the priests so that people can feel secure and protected. In Hindu religion, it is totally normal that statues are treated as a human being and be covered with materials and offerings and this is believed to be the only way to preserve the our Universe. Statue dressing is also to support the philosophy that the God owns everything in the world.

I was going to ask why some of the statues were dressed, but you already answered it. Thanks for the info!
