Once upon a time, giant named Kbo Iwo lived in Bali. He helped people building temples and villges, digging ditches, and cutting terrace out of the hillsides for rice paddies. All he asked for his help was food to satisfy his huge appetite.
One day, poor harvest made the people barely feed themselves, much less agiant. This made Kbo Iwo ngry so much that he rmpaged across the island, killing and detroying everything in sight until all houses, rice fields, and temples were ruined. The people were very angry with Kbo Iwo and gathered together to decide how to stop him. They planned to make friends with giant and then kill him.
The people begged Kbo Iwo to rebuild the temples, houses, and rice fields which he had destroyed in his rempage. The giant agreed and worked at replacing everything he had destroyed. The Balinese people then asked him to build a well. As he dug, the earth piled high next to the well. The pile was as high as a mountain.
Tired from the hard work, he fell sleep. While he was sleeping, the people poured huge mounts of lime (a sticky subtance) down to the well. The lime set around the giant and when he woke up, he was unable to escape.
The well then began to fill with water and it soon overflowed to become lake. Today, many people believe that the lake is Lake Batur, Bali's largest lake. The pile of earth that Kbo Iwo dug out of the well was believed to be Mount Batur, Bali's third-largest volcanic mountain.
