Pay a visit to Klungkung Temple for some insight into Balinese culture and architecture. Surrounded by a lake with numerous lily pads, the grounds and temple provide a scenic view and good spot to take pictures. Marvel at the murals and ceiling carvings in the traditional wayang style: with colorful deep backgrounds and flat figures, they depict various rewards and punishments for good and bad karma. The museum portion of the complex is devoted to the history of Balinese royalty up until they were conquered by Dutch colonists. Sarongs are necessary to wear in the temple and provided at the entrance.
