Klungkung Temple, Bali

4.2
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.

  • Great well maintained community in the heart of the city. The story behind it is even more fascinating with the Court of Justice. In my opinion a must

  • nice place that is not really a temple but the remains of the former royal palace and destroyed in party by the Dutch justice... has little do however rich in history for those like us who have a good guide.

  • A quick stop on our tour, the highlight is the painted ceilings depicting heaven, hell and in between. They have a computer that also describes the reliefs for better understanding. Recommended.  more »
