This study aims to explain why Hindu-Islamic intercultural communication occurs at the Kramat Ratu Mas Sakti Temple in Cemagi Village, Mengwi District, Badung Regency. Exploring the process and what are the implications of communication for religious harmony. This research is expected to provide understanding, information, and scientific understanding to the general public. This study uses three theories, namely (1) phenomenological theory, (2) intercultural communication theory, (3) reception theory. Philosophically, phenomenological theory places humans as creative actors in their social reality. Social reality is not a static tool of the coercion of social facts. that is, human actions are not completely determined by norms, habits, and values. Temple which is normatively a sacred place of Hinduism is used to perform rituals or worship together between Hindus and Muslims. Operationally, this theory can be used as a research methodology in revealing existing social realities.
