Owner description: 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

This is a beautiful temple in the forest. It's full of nooks and crannies to explore. Its very calming and it was nice to be in the cool for a while. It is a real shame to see it so shabby looking though. Overgrown, slippery pathways and steps with a fair amount of rubbish building up along the pathways. It is a must see whilst you are in the area, the architecture is wonderful.

We walked through the forest on the way up, crossing mountain streams and enjoying the look into local forest gardens and local people's lifestyles.The afternoon was grey so not as photogenic as it must be on a fine morning, but the atmosphere and age of the complex was fascinating and the lake area very beautiful.

This temple is one of the most beautiful on the island of Bali. Located in the foothills of Batukaru on the way from Kuta to the lake Beratan
