There are plenty of temples to visit in Bali. But there are a few that are really worth a look at. You will enjoy this temple. Put it on your list to do. Even if its just one.

This is a very special temple for the Balinese, but for a simple tourist it was not special. It has its name from a huge drum moulded in one piece, which is held high up in a temple tower and to european eyes does not look like a drum. It is a quiet temple to visit as it is not... More

This temple, billed as the temple of the fallen moon (the name of a huge drum on display there) is really just a standard Balinese temple, so unless it's the first one you've seen, or there's a ceremony going on when you visit, it's not such a big attraction as you might think. That aid, it's pretty enough, and there's... More

It is no wonder that as at 23 April 2015, there were only 6 existing reviews on Trip Advisor for this place. At the time of our visit, my wife and I were the only visitors. There is not much to see here. One of the altars had rotting meat which exuded a bad stench, while another altar had rotting... More

Our driver recommended this to us as a beautiful place to visit and we are so glad he did. The temple is well maintained and a pleasure to explore. It will give you some insight into Balinese traditions and culture and if photos are your thing expect to get some great images. Expect to give a small donation for your... More
