An angkul-angkul (house gate)is a common feature of Balinese domestic architecture. It is a covered doorway that stands higher than the surrounding walls of a household compound. As a result, the living quarters usually are not visible from the outside and thus maintains family privacy. The brightly lit white-washed gate contrasts with the colorful background and sky.
