Mount Kawi, Tampaksiring
(4.5/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Visit Mount Kawi, an 11th century temple and historical site. Set amidst thick and rich forests and tiered rice fields, the main temple features 10 shrines cut into the rocky cliff face that were believed to be dedicated to King Anak Wungsu of the Udayana dynasty and his queens. Its inspiring, monumental design and surrounding natural landscape make this an atmospheric and photogenic place to walk and learn about the religious heritage of the area. Wear good shoes to visit the temple--300 steps lead down to the main site, and the surrounding forest is well-worth exploring during a longer visit. Add Mount Kawi and other attractions to your Tampaksiring trip itinerary using our Tampaksiring family vacation planner.

  • Really worth it here. The stairs what the truth is about 300, but are not especially challenging. Anyway, that is all in the title, see just the stairs go down:-) it is true that then you have to go, but after that, what you have experienced, it is as if easier) In addition, along the way you can buy local products at very good prices. I recommend!

  • Very nice place that is crossed by the river Pakrisan. In many markets, descent to go and climb back. Of beautiful rice fields to see before going down to the Royal tombs.
