about the video

A centuries-old, sacred Hindu temple in Bali is getting a new neighbor described as “Trump International Hotel and Tower” but nothing close to a tower is going there. Height restrictions prohibit structures higher than Bali’s coconut palms. The Tanah Lot is a sacred Hindu temple that faces the Indian ocean. It’s one of Bali’s most famous sites. Thousands are drawn to the area daily. It’s at the heart of life in Beraban village. The Balinese are proud that their Hindu culture has flourished for centuries. People here are now reshaping plans for a Trump hotel and golf course. It will overlook the Tanah Lot temple. Its promotion describes it as a ‘Trump International Hotel and Tower’. But if a tower becomes too high, authorities are ready to act.
