This is the shrine to worship the god of death Ciwa or Durga so that when someone dies, his/her soul will depart for the heaven, not meandering on the earth.

Pura Dalem Segara Madhu in Jagaraga was for sure one of the highlights of my journey. The stone carvings, showing the difficult relationship between Balines and Dutch during the colonial era (and the war), are exceptional. I spent more than an hour talking to Ketut,...More

A MUST visit when you go to Bali. The temple is wonderful, but its caretaker and guide, Ketut Suradnya, is definitely the star of the show. His ever-smiling face and detailed knowledge of his temple is a delightful memory you will carry with you always.
