    5 Must-Visit Temples in Bali

    Bali highland and coast are home to many ancient temples. Several of them have become the Island's most iconic landmarks, featuring magnificent centuries-old architecture and set against the exotic backdrops. These temples are graet places to visit at least once during your visits to Bali. Each temple is unique. These temple are among others;

    1. Tanah Lot
    Tanah Lot is situated on the coast of Beraban village of Tabanan regency, featuring an ancient Hindu shrine perched on top of an outcrop amidst constantly crashing waves. It is simply among Bali’s not-to-be-missed highlights on tours to Bali’s west, but is also an easy standalone trip – only a 45-minute drive from Kuta.

    2. Uluwatu Temple
    Uluwatu temple or Pura Luhur Uluwatu as it referred to by the locals is lies on a southwest of cliff top approximately 70 metres above the crashing waves, shares the splendid sunset backdrops of Tanah Lot, but at a higher altitude, providing broader ocean and horizon views. Cultural performances such as the Ramayana ballet or Kecak dance, take place in a specially designated amphitheatre at the temple’s south, which takes place during the golden sunset hours, perfect for memorable pictures.

    3. Goa Gajah
    Even though its name translates into ‘Elephant Cave’, you won’t find any pachyderms here. Goa Gajah is an archaeological complex with historical significance, great for a brief stopover on tours to the Ubud region.

    4. Ulun Danu Beratan Temple
    This picturesque landmark and significant temple sits on the western side of Beratan Lake, up in Bali’s central highlands. During high tide, the smooth reflective surface of Beratan surrounds most of the temple’s base, creating a unique floating illusion, while the mountain range provides the temple with its hazy, dreamy backdrop. The striking scenery and cool atmosphere of these uplands have made the temple site a favourite sightseeing and recreational spot for visitors.

    5. Besakih Temple
    Often referred to as Bali’s ‘mother temple’, Besakih is a grand complex of different clan temples and shrines. Regarded as the largest and holiest of the island's temples, it is located at 1,000 metres above sea level on the south-western slopes of Mount Agung. There are at least 70 celebrations held here each year as each shrine has its own anniversary.
