  • This site is not a temple, but a former courthouse. It deserves a visit because the pictorial representations of the ceiling are very interesting.

  • We were housed in Candidasa and, on the way to the beaches of the South, we stopped to see the Palace of Justice in KlungKlung. The enclosure is not very big, but is beautiful, and well worth a visit it if you are in the area, as the entrance is cheap and can be seen in a short time. It is a historical place where justice is taught and is in the Centre of the city, surrounded by a wall and has ponds, sculptures and pavilions with interesting paintings of everyday life. Access is very easy because you can go by car right up to the gate or walking from another part of the city.

  • Why have called temple while he is a former courthouse. Very interesting by the scenes drawn under the 2 flags representative of offences or scenes from the Ramayana.
