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

Pura Luhur Batukaru is one of the nine "directional temples" of Bali (ie one of the most religiously significant) that protect the Balinese from evil spirits. It is located on the southern slopes of Mount Batukaru, so needless to say the 'direction' of this temple...More

It is an amazing spot and to be able to walk all around it was great. A few too many people trying to sell me stuff but it is what it is.

Read about this in the Lonely Planet, it was fantastic. Set up on the mountain side, it was quite dark and misty when we arrived, just added to the experience. There are many paths leading to different temple areas.

distance from other attractions, bumpy ride. Not much to see since foreigners aren't allowed to go in to the praying area of the temple.

Do not skip this temple if you come to visit Jatiluwih. Batukaru temple is one of most interesting temple in Bali. It's a few minutes away from Jatiluwih village. Feel it's fresh air:)

We visited the temple during a day tour with Bali Bliss Tours. Once we were saronged and sashed (the latter for a small hire fee - as we brought our own sarongs) we were allowed to wander the grounds of the Temple. We took heaps...More

If you're coming from Jatiluwih, there's about 4km of truly terrible roads. We've motorbiked all over SE Asia and, other than Laos, I've never experienced roads that occasionally dissolve under your bike and potholes that you can disappear in. However, if you're confident in your...More

If you are around the area, this is a nice stop, otherwise you are not missing much as it is very similar to the other temples.

This temple is around 40 min very scenic drive from Jatiluwih. Being right in the jungle it is quite unlike other temples in Bali, and it is very peaceful with few visitors. An unusual feature is the ornamental lake.
