  • This temple complex is sometimes not completely overcrowded, but it is also not very large. We visited you in "transit." And were thrilled about the picturesque ceilings. You can hike through with a lot of peace

  • The former royal palace, which was also entitled to speak. The table, chairs and ceiling paintings are still there. Nice to walk around.

  • The Klungkung Palace (Kherta GOSA) is located in the Centre of the town area in the South West of Bali. He is one of the main attractions on Bali and offers many beautiful photo opportunities. Differently than some other places in Bali he is not totally overrun.
