Luhur Batukaru Temple, Penebel

#15 of 118 in Historic Sites in Bali
Hike up Mount Batukaru to find Luhur Batukaru Temple, a temple tucked away in its slopes. Sacred to the local Hindu population, the site is believed to protect Bali from evil spirits. Originally built in the 11th century, the temple was subsequently destroyed and rebuilt in 1959. Take a walk around this secluded structure, viewing its ponds, shrines, and traditional architecture. Explore a bit further into the surrounding thick mountain vegetation, including bamboo, coffee trees, and cocoa plants, but grab some warmer clothes because it gets quite chilly at this altitude.
