Top 10 Bali Temples

Top 10 Bali Temples

With thousands of temples on the island, it might seem difficult to choose which one to visit. That’s why we wrote this article to give you details about what could be considered as the 10 most beautiful temples. And before to start, it is important to know some basic rules to respect while visiting a temple.

Clothing rules in a temple in Bali

While visiting a temple in Bali, you will notice that everybody wears a colourful scarf tied at the waist with a piece of fabric. This is called a “sarong”. A sarong is a rectangular piece of fabric, often printed with various patterns and colours. Some common designs are flowers, animals or graphic designs. A very traditional dyeing technique is called “Batik”. Batik could mean “writing dots” as this technique uses wax to make drawings on the fabric that will be dyed. But don’t worry in you don’t have your own sarong when visiting a temple in Bali. You can usually buy or rent one at the entrance of any temple in Bali.

Also note that your body must be covered – especially the legs with the sarong – so that you won’t of course be allowed to visit a temple in Bali with an open shirt. As the climate is usually hot in Bali, don’t worry, you will be allowed to visit a temple in Bali wearing a T-shirts. You can read our article about the climate in Bali.

Be respectful while visiting in a temple in Bali

  • Of course, basic every-day-rules applies and must be respected even more carefully as you visit a temple in Bali.
  • Spitting on the floor is forbidden, as well as having a rude behaviour.
  • As mentioned in our article about Balinese religion, you will find many offerings in any temple in Bali.
  • Do not step a foot on an offering, as it will be very disrespectful towards the person who made it and towards the gods.
  • Avoid throwing trash in a Bali temple.
  • Remove your shoes at the entrance while visiting a temple in Bali. However, it is not necessarily mandatory.
  • One last thing – that has nothing to do with respect but more with a cultural rule – is that women should not visit a temple in Bali during menstruation.

Now you’re ready to visit the best temples in Bali with our Top 10 selection of the best places to visit!

Bali temple #1: Besakih Temple Karangasem

How to better start a list of the Top 10 temples to visit in Bali than with Besakih Temple? Besakih Temple is the holiest temple in Bali. On Bali maps, you will find Besakih located at 62 km from Denpasar and at 22 km from Klungkung. Before to visit this Bali temple located at bottom of the slopes of the Mount Gunung-Agung, don’t forget to bring a jacket just in case. Indeed, it is at 950 meters above sea level and the temperature could be quite surprising. Don’t hesitate to refuse the guides at the entrance of the temple, if you prefer to visit this Bali temple more freely.

“Pura Besakih” Temple is a holy place in Bali composed of twenty-three temples. This Bali temple is dedicated to the three main gods of Hindu religion: Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Besides these primary gods, you will find other shrines dedicated to secondary deities. While taking the stairs at the entrance of this Bali temple, look on both sides. On the right, you will find the statues of Evil, staring at you with frightening looks. On the left, you will find statues of Good, with calm and benevolent faces. The architecture is very typical from the Bali temples. Each temple has several “merus”. Merus are thatched roofs that are piled up in successive tiers on the pagoda. The number of thatched roofs can go from one for the humblest shrines to eleven for holiest temples in Bali.

Bali temple #2: Tanah Lot Temple

You will find Tanah Lot temple on Bali maps at less and 20 km from Tabanan and about an hour drive from Ubud. This Bali temple is particularly impressive as it is perched on a massive rock on the sea. As a consequence, it is only accessible by foot when the tide is low. Without surprise, “Pura Tanah Lot” is the Bali temple dedicated to the spirits of the Sea. And Bali being an island, it is all the more important for Balinese people to pray and protect their home island from the wrath of the surrounding element. At sunset, this temple bears a mysterious and magical atmosphere, when the waves break on the black rock and the pagodas with multi-tier “merus” stand out against the orange sky. It is said that this Bali temple is guarded by sea snakes. You might find Balinese priests keeping a snake in one of the rocky holes of the cliff, to embody this Balinese myth.

Bali temple #3: Uluwatu Temple – Pura Luhur Uluwatu

On a map of Bali, Uluwatu temple is located 15 km South from Jimbaran, on the West side of the Bukit peninsula. This temple in Bali is very famous for its emblematic panorama at sunset. The temple is perched at the edge of a cliff, 70 meters above the sea. Just as Tanah Lot Temple, Uluwatu temple is dedicated to the sea, to preserve the Balinese people from its power. This Bali temple is also famous for being the home to a multitude of monkeys. Be careful, as many Bali tourists get tricked by them. Stolen sunglasses, cameras or any other items… But don’t worry, some local people are here to help you reclaim your sunglasses by simply offering the monkey some bananas. At sunset, when the scenery is the most beautiful, go the for “Kecak dance”. This show is a very nice cultural activity to do in Bali. This traditional performance with singing and dancing will also please the children. Read our article to discover other activities to do in a Bali family trip. Uluwatu temple is an unmissable visit that is regularly organized by the Kupu Jimbaran hotel for its guests.

Bali temple #4: Tirta Empul Temple Tampaksiring

Tirta Empul Temple can be accesses from Ubud, and is located near the town of Tampaksiring. It is one of the many visits in Bali that can be organized by the Kupu Barong resort in Ubud, or during the shuttle transfer between this resort and the Kupu Jimbaran hotel.

Tirta Empul literally means “holy spring”. Built for the God Indra, this temple in Bali attracts many religious people as well as Bali tourists to bath in its water. You will enter in a temple complex with several courtyards and ponds. The spring is known to be divine and to have healing powers. It can be found in the largest pond, where you can actually notice water surging out of water. Impressive!

Bali temple #5: Taman Saraswati Temple Ubud

Taman Saraswati Temple is located in Ubud, in the very heart of Bali. Build in the 1950s, this Bali temple is dedicated to the Goddess of arts and learning, Dewi Saraswati. It is known as the “Ubud Water Palace”, and you will easily understand why: to enter the temple complex, you will have to go through a path – similar to a flat bridge – across a vast lotus pond. Taman Saraswati Temple is like a palace sitting in front of a real water garden! The entrance is flanked by frangipani trees on both sides, but unfortunately tourists aren’t allowed to enter the main temple. The large decorated wooden door can be seen from outside, with its shimmering gold and red painting. If you want to relax at the place, you may go to the Lotus Café nearby. Or if you prefer watching an impressive “kecak dance”, it’s also possible from 7:30 in the evening.

Bali temple #6: Lempuyang  Temple – Pura  Luhur Lempuyang

On a Bali map, you will find Lempuyang  Temple located in the East region of Bali, in Karangasem regency, at 1,175 meters above sea level. This temple complex is composed of seven temples. The highest temple on Mount Lempuyan requires to climb as many as 1,700 steps through nature. Like in Uluwatu Temple, you will meet some mischievous monkeys on the way, so watch your sunglasses. Climbing at the top therefore requires good physical condition as well as a bottle of water – not to forget before to go. The three stairs of the lowest temple represent “nagas”, giant mythical snakes, while the impressive white-painted gates mark the entrance of the sanctum. This Bali temple offers a panoramic view of the “Gates to Heaven” with the Mount Agung as a backdrop, the highest volcano of Bali.

Bali temple #7: Ulun Danu and Bratan Lake

Ulun Danu Temple is located near Bedugul village on the Bratan Lake, at 1,500 meters above sea level. In this region, the Bratan Lake is the main source of irrigation of the rice fields nearby. This temple in Bali is so emblematic that it has been depicted at the back of every 50,000-rupiah notes. As for the religion, Ulun Danu Temple is dedicated to Dewi Danu, the Water, River and Lake Goddess. As if it was floating on the lake, the pagoda of eleven “merus” – thatched roofs – reflects on the water. More unexpected, the Stupa at the entrance on the left reveals a Buddhist influence near this Hindu temple and also symbolizes religious harmony.

Bali temple #8: Taman Ayun Temple Mengwi

This charming Bali temple in Mengwi has the particularity of being located on a sort of island, surrounded by a river. Well named, “Pura Taman Ayun” means “temple garden on the water”. This major temple in Bali is composed of two courtyards. The first one hosts a large pond with a fountain in the middle. The second courtyard of the temple has several pagoda-styled towers, with multi-tier thatched-roofs – “merus”. The highest and most important having as much as eleven “merus” piled up on each other.

Bali temple #9: Elephant Cave – Goa Gajah

Goa Gajah is located on a Bali map at 4 km from the center of Ubud, in the village of Bedulu. The very large monstruous face carved out the stone wall – in which the mouth is the entrance – wasn’t made to frighten visitors, but rather to repel evil spirits. The face, looking like an elephant, some will say – hence the name – is in fact a “Bhoma”. Bhoma is a very common deity, guarding the entrance of every temple in Bali. Inside the Goa Gajah cave, you will find a Ganesh sculpture – the Elephant God. That Hindu figure may very well have given its name to the Elephant Cave.

Bali temple #10: Bat Cave – Goa Lawah Temple Klungkung

Goa Lawah Temple is located on the East coast of the island of Bali, in the village of Pesinggahan in Klungkung. We can easily understand where the name “Bat Cave” (Goa Lawah) came from: when you enter the cave, you will see and mostly hear the echoes of the multitude of bats hanging upside down to the cave dome. And the gold-inlaid bat sculpture guarding the entrance of this Bali temple stands as a friendly warning: don’t enter if you’re phobic, although these little flying mammals won’t ever touch any visitor. This cave maybe be of interest for children. This temple hosts several ceremonies every year, where Balinese people dressed up in traditional costumes come to pray and burn incense sticks.


Balinese culture: religion, gods and Top 6 most important ceremonies

Balinese culture: religion, gods and Top 6 most important ceremonies

Balinese culture: Religion

The main religion in Balinese culture is Hinduism, but it is quite different from the Indian Hindu religion. In Bali, the religion is closer to what we can call “animism”: the belief in the souls of all things in nature. That is why in Balinese culture, people are very careful and respectful of nature, because everything has a deity that lives in them. The Balinese culture and religion are also very festive: ceremonies, village festivals, pilgrimage, dances, purification rites and also cremation to honour the dead. The festive calendar in Bali is very rich of religious events of all sorts, to honour very different gods and rituals.

Balinese culture: Gods

The 3 primary Gods

Bali is called the “Island of Gods”, and we can easily understand why. There are plenty of different gods in Balinese culture and religion, the three major ones being Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu. Dewa Brahma is the God of all Knowledge, often painted in red in temples in Bali. Dewa Vishnu is the merciful Protector of Life. He opens the cycle of life with his wife the Goddess of Fertility. At the other end of the cycle of life stands Dewa Shiva, God of Death and Destruction. This is not to take exclusively on a negative – Western – point of view. Indeed, in Balinese culture, destruction also means cleaning and coming back to its state of origin. This closing of circle is very important in the religion where karma could be depicted as a wheel that turns and balances according to good or bad deeds.

Some secondary Gods

In Balinese culture, you will also find other popular gods, such as the famous Garuda the eagle – who gave his name to the Indonesian airline company. Bali tourists will recognize him easily with his pointed beak with teeth, large and magnificent wings, and often mounted by Dewa Vishnu. Another face that will soon is be familiar to all Bali tourists in any temple is Bhoma. This God guards the entrance of all the temples in Bali, or even private houses’ front door. Difficult to say if this large face with wide-opened mouth is smiling at Bali tourists or staring at them with a monstruous look. It probably depends on the – hopefully – benevolent intentions that they bear while entering a temple in Bali.

Balinese culture: Offerings

One major way to honour the gods in Balinese culture is to give them offerings. That is why you will find an incredible number of temples in Bali, of all sorts and all sizes. A temple in Bali is not necessarily a large place that can host public, it can also be similar to a small shrine in a private house or garden. The temple in Bali is there to protect its people and to protect the place. Even in a hotel, it is important to please and honour the gods so that guests can enjoy their stay without worrying. So even at places like the Kupu Barong in Ubud, Bali tourists may notice some temples and shrines.

People put offerings in front of a temple in Bali to nourish the gods. An offering is a small palm-leaf basket that serves as a tray – named “Canang sari”, to contain colourful items: fruits, flowers, leaves, nuts. In Balinese culture, each element has of course a symbolic meaning. Bali tourists will find these offerings in many places, either in the streets on the pavement, at the bottom of a small shrine, and of course in every temple in Bali. Read our article to discover our Top 10 temples in Bali.

Balinese culture: the 6 most important ceremonies

As mentioned above, Balinese culture is very rich and the festive calendar is marked with a multitude of ceremonies. Some of them are local-based, attached to a specific temple or to a private family event – such as a wedding, the “tooth-filing” ceremony or a cremation. However, some ceremonies are observed at island-wide level.

Balinese cultural ceremony #1: Nyepi Day

In Balinese culture, Nyepi Day is the “Day of Silence” celebrated in March every year. This day is the equivalent of New Year’s Day for the Balinese lunar calendar and is also a public holiday in Indonesia. During the whole day, all activities and businesses are stopped, lights are off, and by law nobody has the right to go out in the streets. That’s the day of soul purification. The day before, large offerings are placed at every street crossing, and giant papier-mâché “ogoh-ogoh” – demons in Balinese culture – will parade throughout the villages in music and are burnt in the evening to purify Balinese people.

Balinese cultural ceremony #2: Galungan and Kuningan

Twice a year, Balinese culture celebrates a ten-day religious holiday called Galungan. Galungan is the celebration of the creation of the universe, the victory of Good against Evil. In Balinese culture, the spirits of the ancestors will come back to Earth in the temples and their former homes, so that Balinese people make all efforts to welcome them in the best way, through prayers and with offerings. Bali tourists will be able to recognize this festival namely by the tall and decorated bamboo sticks flanked on both sides of the streets which constitutes magnificent offerings. The last day is Kuningan, when the ancestors leave Earth, until the next Galungan.

Balinese cultural ceremony #3: Pagerwesi

Pagerwesi is the day in Balinese culture when people take time for themselves, to strengthen their defence against Evil spirits. It is a self-introspection and reinforcement day, also to pray for the rest of Humanity. The name “Pagerwesi” litterally means “iron fence”, as a symbol of a strong fortification of the mind against malevolent forces. This day is celebrated a few days after Saraswati.

Balinese cultural ceremony #4: Saraswati

Saraswati is the day dedicated to Dewi Saraswati, the Goddess of Knowledge. During this day, the Goddess will give a divine inspiration to Balinese people, and that knowledge and wisdom will enable them to celebrate Pagerwesi, to build a protective fence for the mind and soul.

Balinese cultural ceremony #5: Odalan

Odalan is the celebration of a Bali temple anniversary. Balinese people will celebrate their temple with magnificent offerings to honour their deities as well as prayers and music. And with several thousands of temples in Bali, that is why Bali tourists have great chances to witness a temple celebration during their stay.

Balinese cultural ceremony #6: Tumpek

There are several “Tumpek” festivals during the year in Balinese culture. Each of them will honour specific deities by offering them specific objects. “Tumpek Landep” is the day to celebrate the creator of all metal tools, such as iron, gold or bronze. This blessing is to thank the God for its gift to Humanity. “Tumpek Uduh” – the “Green Festival” – celebrates Sanghyang Sangakkara the God of Plants and Food. Again, Balinese people will show their gratitude and make offerings made of trees, plants, coconut etc to thank the God for good harvests. “Tumpek Kandang” will honour the God of Animals and Pets, Sang Hyang Rare-Angon. During that day, household and farm pets – ducks, pigs, hens, dogs – may be decorated to worship their benefactor.

Nyobain L’Occitane Spa di Bali untuk Membentuk Tubuh

Bamboo Spa by L’Occitane

Buat kalian yang hobi traveling sekaligus mencoba banyak kuliner yang enak di Bali, rasanya pas banget buat menutup liburan dengan mencoba L’occitane Almond Silhouette Reshape Program di Bamboo Spa by L’occitane yang ada di Jimbaran, Bali ini.

Setelah puas main di pantai dan menikmati banyak banget makanan enak di Bali, rasanya bakalan kurang afdol kalau kita nggak spa di Pulau Dewata ini. Sebagai salah satu pusat spa yang terkenal di dunia, pilihan spa saya di Bali kali ini jatuh pada L’Occitane Spa di Bamboo Spa, Jimbaran. Untuk seri treatment-nya, saya nyobain L’Occitane Almond Silhouette Reshape Program.

bamboo spa

Durasi: 120 menit

Harga: Rp2.416.500,-/orang

Lokasi: Kupu-Kupu Jimbaran Beach Club & Spa by L’occitane, Jimbaran, Bali.

Siapa Yang Pas Melakukannya?

Nah, pas saya ngobrol sama terapisnya, sebenarnya treatment ini tuh memang cocok banget dipakai oleh new moms yang memang butuh mengencangkan kembali area-area tertentu pada tubuhnya dan menyamarkan stretch marks serta selulit pasca melahirkan. Terus kenapa dong treatment ini yang saya pilih, padahal saya belum melahirkan? Pertama, karena memang saya suka banget dengan aroma rangkaian Almond milik L’Occitane, dan kedua, walaupun saya belum punya anak, tapi beberapa area tubuh tuh sudah ada stretch marks dan memang kulit tubuh saya juga cenderung kering. Jadi, pas lah untuk memilih treatment ini.

Step By Step

Pertama-tama, terapis akan melakukan foot bath dengan pijatan menenangkan pada area kaki. Setelah itu ia bertanya kepada saya, kira-kira ingin massage di bagian akhir ritual atau di awal. Nah, karena memang saya juga cukup merasa pegal, akhirnya saya meminta terapis untuk melakukan teknik pijat biasa pada area-area yang agak sedikit lebih tegang, seperti pundak dan telapak kaki. Pijatan pun saya minta pada bagian akhir ritual saja. Kemudian, pas saya tidur telungkup pada tempat tidur khusus spa, terapis memberikan aroma terapi lavender untuk kemudian dihirup oleh saya secara perlahan. Langsung deh rasanya relaks banget. Setelahnya, ia menggunakan L’Occitane Almond Delicious Paste yang telah dihangatkan terlebih dahulu dan menggosokkannya pada seluruh tubuh. Trik menghangatkan scrub ini pun akhirnya saya lakukan sendiri di rumah, karena dipercaya bisa membantu mengangkat sel kulit mati, sekaligus bikin kulit kita lebih lembap lagi.

Usai scrubbing, saya pun dipersilakan untuk mandi menggunakan Almond Moisturizing Shower Oil yang juga adalah favorit saya. Karena produk ini bisa membersihkan kulit, tapi sama sekali nggak menjadikannya terasa kering. Setelahnya, saya pun diminta untuk berendam selama kurang lebih 25 menit. Tapi, karena saya merasa lebih butuh pemijatan, akhirnya saya meminta untuk tidak terlalu lama berendam dan menjadikan waktunya untuk dipakai pijat. Setelah keluar dari bath tub, saya melakukan 1 kali bilasan lagi dan siap untuk ritual massage.

Diawali dari area kaki, terapis saya pun memijat area-area yang lebih pegal dengan pressure yang pas. Setelah area-area tersebut selesai, barulah kemudian teknik pijat slimming dilakukan pada area pinggang, paha dan lengan. Agak sedikit sakit memang, tapi tidak membuat badan saya jadi biru-biru. Setelah pijatan selesai dilakukan, terapis pun menyodorkan aroma terapi untuk saya hirup. Kali ini wanginya lebih segar, karena memang dinamakan L’Occitane Revitalizing Essential Oil Blend. Kemudian treatment ini pun ditutup dengan aplikasi Almond Firming Milk Concentrate pada seluruh tubuh, untuk sealed all the goodness yang sudah diaplikasikan saat massage sebelumnya.

Final Verdict

Biasanya, saya sudah nggak betah kalau melakukan treatment massage lebih dari 90 menit lamanya. Tapi ketika melakukan treatment L’Occitane Almond Silhouette Reshape Program ini, ritual selama 2 jam itu seperti berlalu begitu saja. Saya yakin banget salah satu faktor penyebabnya adalah penggunaan aroma rangkaian Almond dari L’Occitane yang emang selalu jadi favorit saya. Pijatan dari terapisnya juga pas banget. Nggak bikin njarem (pegal dan sakit-sakit setelahnya) ataupun betis jadi agak sakit. Memang sih, area yang lebih difokuskan untuk reshaping program agak sedikit sakit, tapi masih sangat bearable. Bahkan tubuh kayak berasa lebih ringan gitu setelah treatment dilakukan. Oiya, karena memang ada pijatan slimming yang dilakukan, saya merasa jadi lebih gampang pingin untuk buang air kecil. Sepertinya sedikit lemak yang ada di dalam tubuh terbantu untuk keluar melalui cairan tubuh saya.

Selain itu, kulit juga jadi kerasa halus banget karena terapis menggunakan hampir semua rangkaian produk Almond milik L’Occitane yang memang terkenal mampu membantu melembapkan kulit dengan sangat optimal. Pemijatan yang menggunakan L’Occitane Almond Supply Skin Oil ini juga nggak cuma bantu bikin kulit lebih lembap, tapi kandungan lebih dari 50% minyak almond di dalamnya itu berfungsi juga untuk membantu mengencangkan kulit tubuh kita. Hasilnya sudah pasti nggak akan kelihatan instan saat itu juga, tapi dengan kulit yang terasa lebih kenyal, saya pun jadi pingin melakukan pijatan-pijatan di area tubuh yang lebih berlemak menggunakan body oil ini sendiri di rumah.
