Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • This place is somewhat difficult to find. We combined it with the Tagalalang rice fields. At the entrance you have to pay admission (CA 15000IDR), a sarong is also duty like almost all temples. At the many levels down to the old temples you can see beautiful rice terraces. If you want to visit this place alone, it is the best, it is early to :)

  • Temple and Royal Tombs, immersed in the wonderful circostente vegetation. Definitely worth visiting, at the sight of those tombs carved into the rock are felt all the rungs get up to that moment. In the main grave cannot be accessed (cave), in that next you can but on entering without shoes. Sarong included in entrance ticket.
