Pura Luhur Batukaru, Tabanan
(4.3/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Hike up Mount Batukaru to find Pura Luhur Batukaru, 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 Pura Luhur Batukaru and other Tabanan attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • much less common than other temples, because farther with less good roads... the landscape to get there is lavish...

  • We expect a Grand thing, it was probably our fault... The temple is very large, there is a short walk to go around but I found it as to abandonment, not treated as other temples can be, it's a shame, could be a very very nice place.

  • 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.
  • if you can feel the energy, you'll be very excited.. feel the power here,,feel how great is The Lord..
  • The best pura for me. Without any tourist, in the middle of jungle and with nice lake.
  • Quiet and peacefull hindu temple, cool air and realy forest experience.
  • Quiet and hard to get there, but a really nice temple. Look for the artificial lake when you're there
