Luhur Batukaru Temple, Tabanan

(4.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Hike up Mount Batukaru to find Luhur Batukaru Temple, a temple tucked away in its slopes. Sacred to the local Hindu population, the site is believed to protect Bali from evil spirits. Originally built in the 11th century, the temple was subsequently destroyed and rebuilt in 1959. Take a walk around this secluded structure, viewing its ponds, shrines, and traditional architecture. Explore a bit further into the surrounding thick mountain vegetation, including bamboo, coffee trees, and cocoa plants, but grab some warmer clothes because it gets quite chilly at this altitude. Our Tabanan itinerary maker makes visiting Luhur Batukaru Temple and other Tabanan attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • An ancient temple, a bit far from the civilization but a well kept temple with a very quiet environment  more »
  • Disamping tidak ada eksploitasi turis dengan dagang acungnya, guide liarnya, di tempat ini orang juga bisa mendapati suasana hijau, sejuk, begitupun kebersihan relatif terjaga.  more »
  • This temple is situated on the slope of Mount Batukaru, surrounded by beautiful tropical vegetation. It is worth to look into because it is less travelled and you can feel the spirit of Bali island. :)

  • Located in Tabanan Regency, this pura (temple) is one of the most sacred temples in Bali island. And when there is ceremonies, this temple will full of Balinese people from all over Bali for praying....and the atmosphere will be so mystical and holy.... When there's no ceremonies, this temple so quiet, still you will feel mystical and holy. Even from the entering road until you arrived at the gate (Candi Bentar) you already feel so sacred. You'll need wearing sarong to enter the temple and small donation will be rewarded, big donation will make all local people happy. When you entered the temple, sometimes there's a small box with "Dana Punia" written, this box for donation too, it's a holy donation....you decide... There's a big lake in the back, very relaxing and very beautiful, you can slowly walk and enjoy the atmosphere.....
  • Very nice temple in the dschungle. Nearly 1000 years old.
  • This is a beautiful temple close to 1000 years old if I recall.
  • Really hard to find and disastrous street to drive by scooter. Not that impressing temple. I think if you have a lot of time to spend in Bali it's worth a visit. If you have not that much time skip this temple and visit another one.
  • The best pura for me. Without any tourist, in the middle of jungle and with nice lake.
