  • This beautiful Hindu temple consists of many beautiful buildings and statues. The population that the temple is well maintained. You don't have to pay an entrance fee but you may give a free gift and you can borrow a sarong.

  • Pura Desa Batuan. According to tradition, in every Balinese village, must be at least three temples: the temple origin at the edge of the village, "Rustic temple-at its Center, and the" Temple of the dead "-next to the cemetery. The temple is one of the three temples of Batuan village, he is the centerpiece. The exact date of its construction is not known. The temple is beautifully decorated in the traditions of Balinese architecture, including the main entrance. It is decorated with masks and figures of Hindu gods.

  • The first temple, which is visited on Bali. First you need to make a small donation. signing in book-keeping. Then we obrjadili in bright colorful sarongs and forward to the temple! The entrance to the Temple in the form of broken gates. and this is an interesting national architectural solution. all Balinese temples are similar and consist of three sites, which are religious buildings, mostly in the form of outdoor terraces, where walks a warm breeze. On the territory of many flowering trees. A few tourists, mostly Chinese and Russians all-groups no more than 4 people, the most inquisitive. probably. Many sculptures depicting local gods and goddesses and other protection from evil spirits. National music sounds, local women weave their baskets made from banana leaves for offerings. Fountains with goldfish, water pools with sacred sheatfish, blossoming lotuses. Rest and peace amid the Twitter of birds and blue sky. Liked it.

  • I found the temple beautiful and loved the classical Balinese architecture. There is no formal entrance fee but you're required to pay some token. Ladies need to cover their legs and bare arms. If you don't have any scarf, there are some for hire.
  • Amazing crafting and peaceful place
  • Balinese architecture in depth. Quite peaceful and serene. Reminds me to villages of Kungfu panda movie. :-)
  • waste of time
  • Nice temple to visit, be sure to visit it thoroughly as there are a few hidden paths behind the main area that even nicer!
