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.
