Pura Luhur Poten

Pura Luhur Poten holds a significant importance to the Tenggerese tribe who scatter across the mountainous villages such as Ngadisari, Wonokitri, Ngadas, Argosari, Ranu Prani, Ledok Ombo and Wonokerso. As the decline of Majapahit Kingdom dawned upon these people, they emphatically moved to the outskirts of the volcanoes, which inaccessibility was their greatest asset to fend off any foreign intrusions.

Komodo National Park is not only notable as the natural habitat for the endangered Komodo dragons, it has an amazing underwater scenery so awe-inspiring that, in my opinion, no world-class oceanarium can rival. It's a bliss that we are living in the tropics of pristine coral reefs and beautiful islands of crystal clear waters.
