A structure believed to be a Hindu temple in Bali was found. The temple is also thought to be the largest temple ever found in Bali.

Wayan Swantika of the local archaeology agency says that workers were digging a drainage basin last week in eastern Denpasar, Bali’s capital, when they discovered a large stone about 1 meter underground. So far, the excavation teams have uncovered  57-meter of the temple structure.
