Pura Luhur Batukaru Temple

One of the six directional temples sacred to Balinese Hindus, Pura Luhur Batukaru was built on the slopes of Mount Batukaru during the 11th century and rebuilt to its current form in 1959. Surrounded by verdant jungle and often shrouded in mist, the grounds house a series of tiered shrines, the most important of which is the seven-tiered structure dedicated to the god Mahadewa.

Compared to Bali’s more popular temples, Pura Luhur Batukaru sees far fewer visitors, lending it a sense of serenity that’s hard to find at places like Tanah Lot or Uluwatu. Its peaceful setting amid the rain forest at the foot of Mt Batukaru also enhances the structure's stunning Balinese architecture. Some areas of the temple, including the inner courtyard where ritual ceremonies are performed, are off limits to visitors.

Practical Info
