Mount Agung (Balinese: ᬕᬸᬦᬸᬂᬅᬦᬸᬂ, romanized: Gunung Agung) is a volcano on Bali. Mount Agung last erupted in 1963-1964. The lava just missed the Mother Temple of Besakih, which is located on high on the slopes of this sacred mountain. Over 1,000 people were killed and a number of villages were destroyed in this eruption.
