  • Even if one on Bali after some time 'temple-tired': the Puseh Batuan Temple belongs definitely to the particularly interesting. The temple is located about halfway between Sanur and Ubud. I visited him in a day tour in Bali. A sarong, is required to enter the temple grounds. If it brings in a little time, you can find a lot of great photo opportunities and interesting details, such as statues, sacrificial offerings, beautiful mosaics and a gold fish pond where also turtles frolicking.

  • This temple is a beautiful one for first timers like us. We just paid 10k for the sarong just to go inside the temple. The area is well maintained and clean enough.  more »
  • Tour guides show dozens of temples, which comes to be tiring, each corner has a. This stands out, first because it is well cared for and maintained, and from an idea of religion, culture and architecture of the region. I think visiting this already to be aware of the other. The only way in is from sarong, which is on loan to the visit, which I consider mandatory,

  • Entrance fee/ Sarong fee 10000IDR per person as of April 2018. We were here around 12 noon and it was blazing hot so we couldn't explore as much as we wanted. It's a small temple complex with nice sculptures. One of them the World Turtle which is a giant turtle believed by Hindus carried the world atop its shell.
  • Nice temple ... cozy and small ... should take like half an hour max to enjoy all shrines
  • This was the first time I've been to a Hindu temple and it was amazingly beautiful. The detail of the statues and craft work on the windows and doors cannot be put into words. The Balinese artisans are truly talented and patient people as temples like these take years to construct. Beautiful and immaculately clean.
  • The old Pura, very respectful of taking care of tradition of ritual among the community Banjar of that place, the ritual doing by all ages of municipal with happiness and full of respect one to another's in the community. It is lost in the modern living but still found on Bali.
  • Best Temple in Bali. There’s an ancient temple at the back, build at early 9 century. And the 19th centuries temple at front. Very nice people. Tourist friendly
