Overview

Luhur Batukaru Temple is one of Bali's key directional temples (Bali attractions) and a site of pilgrimage for Hindu Balinese. The Pura Luhur Batukaru lies in solitary clearing 1,300 meters above the sea level, all around the Batukaru temple you'll find a garden of flowering frangipani and hibiscus, with a gigantic, inhabited, humid tropical forest all around it. The impressive placed Batukaru is situated on the slopes of Mount Batukaru since the 11th century, which is an especially sacred site, even by Balinese standards. That's why all visitors have to carefully read and abide the temple rules posted clearly at the entrance.The temple is high on the slopes of the mountain and the often misty, drizzly micro-climate here just adds to its undoubtedly mystical atmosphere. Due to the cool climate and high rainfall (has the highest rainfall on Bali), the shrines in this temple are covered by moss

Peaceful and peaceful temple with cool air here. To go to the main temple you will need to use a sarong. You can walk slowly and enjoy the atmosphere around the temple.

I love the drive to get here. It's not relatively well known amongst foreigners so its usually not busy at all. Peaceful and serene drive amongst rice terraces and valley with mountain views.

Visited this temple for our 30th wedding anniversary- so quiet and peaceful. You need to hire a sarong and sash to enter the site which is part of the rp 2000 ticket.

Another beautiful temple near the rice fields, made in typical Balinese style. Good for a short visit.

This temple has an very special ambiance - you can almost feel how old this place of worship is. A Hindu Saint built the temple in the 11th century, but probably on the fundaments of a Pre-Hindu cult place. Go for a walk on the...More
