Remains of the Royal Palace

This is the remains of the Royal Palace and there is no need to wear a sarong here. An interesting museum too on the grounds. Can visit the local market opposite.

We stopped here towards the end of a lengthy day tour, it was not on our tour list but we are happy that we listened to our driver's suggestion. IDR12,000 gains admission but, unless your knees are covered you must wear a sarong. The hordes descend on you, prices started at IRP100,000 each, but after showing that I had only... More

Called here on our way from Sideman. Completely different to many other sights and temples in Bali and interesting to see the gat where by Dewa Agung Jambe II led members of his dynasty to engage in a puputan following the Dutch invasion. Make sure you check out the paintings on the ceilings of each temple, a series of columns... More

The most interesting to see in this historical building is the classical paintings on the ceiling depicting the journey of Bima, one of the five Pandawa heroes in the afterlife to look for the souls of his father and stepmother. During his journey in hell, he shows us so many punishments for the wrong doers. In the eyes of the... More

It's a small place with nice water fountains. There is a museum so if you're into museums you may like this place as this place does not offer much.

A fantastic temple with beautiful artwork away from the crowds. Small but perfectly forms. You could combine this with a trip to white sand beach, one of the most picturesque in Bali.

We came here as a last stop on our day tour. It is a nice relaxing place with water fountains and feels like a temple - but what exactly is it? It's not a temple...not a palace...not sure what it is. But it's nice. The guy at the ticket booth couldn't do simple maths, but he was very amusing and... More

The garden is wonderful and the ceiling painting is certainly worth seeing up close. Just across the street is the Puputan monument, also very much worth a visit. And across the other street is the Klungkung market, very nice to walk around and see where local people do their daily shopping as well as clothes and religious parafernalia.

This is a little piece of tranquility, in the hearth of Semarapura Town. Kambang (Floating Bale). It is so called because it looks as floating on the water pond. Enjoy exploring the wildlife and beautiful architecture which are in harmony. To the right is the small but interesting museum filled with artifacts from a by gone age.

The museum isn't but both the pavilions are, especially because of the paintings on the ceiling of course
