Gunung Kawi Sebatu Temple, Tegalalang

(4.5/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Admire the intricate stone carvings and various statues and shrines at Gunung Kawi Sebatu Temple. A Hindu temple dedicated to Vishnu, the preserver god who rules over water, this hidden gem features grounds filled with natural springs and lotus ponds inhabited by golden carp. You can feed the fish, roam the lush forest landscape, and even drink the pure cold water from the springs. Be prepared to descend quite a lot of steps to get to the site, but once you do you will be rewarded with lovely surroundings and views of the rice fields. Note that women will need to wear a sarong, and men a sash, to enter.

  • The reviews below and the pictures above are not about the Mount Kawi in Sebatu Guning Kawi Temple but about Tampaksiring. We visited them both and had also struggled to explain the difference to our driver. This temple has a staircase of maybe fifteen and for the rest completely flat. The temple itself does not amount to much but he is located in a beautiful, green and water-filled garden. A must to see? No. But Mount Kawi though.

  • For this visit it takes 15,000 rp/pers. After descending quite a market you discover this temple carved into the rock. You are in the middle of nature in the quiet. There is a small river to cool off. There are very nice pictures to do.

  • This place looks like it's been built in a quarry. It's a nice calm place to sit and just watch the fish in the big pond. The way the jungle just grows down the sheer walls is just amazing, You could be in a (Apocalypse Now ) film set.
  • The fact that this holy water temple is the least visited temple complexes in Ubud make it even more special to me. I'm captivated by the surrounding beauty and the tranquility.
  • A beautiful temple. One of the biggest attractions is that it is much less visited than other temples in the area although it has great significance in Bali.

  • Sebatu-Gunung Kawi Temple Pura Gunung Kawi Sebatu, Gunung Kawi remains near a beautiful pond that we went. Beautiful ponds like the fountain at the back sits the pagoda. It was various statues and unique features. It is a temple in Bali the most liked.
