Batuan Temple Tours

Batuan Temple is a Hindu temple located in a rural village just off the main road leading from Denpasar to Ubud. For more than a thousand years, the village of Batuan has been populated by artists and craftspeople who take pride in looking after the ancient temples in their part of the Balinese countryside.

Batuan Temple is incredibly ornate, with its elaborate carvings and decorative ornaments and shrines. Typically Balinese in architectural style, it features a primary courtyard, a secondary courtyard, and a main one. The temple entrance has a split­gate structure, while the main temple is flanked by stone guardian statues.

Batuan Temple is part of the ‘Tri Kahyangan’ or ‘Tri Murti’ concept taught by Mpu Kuturan to the Balinese Hindu community in the 10th century. This incorporates a Desa or Village Temple as a place to worship God Brahma (the Creator), a Puseh Temple to worship God Vishnu (the Preserver), and a Dalem Temple to worship Lord Shiva (the Destroyer).

Both men and women entering the temple are expected to wear a Balinese kamben (sarong-type garment) to show their respect. These are given out at the temple entrance.

Practical Info

The village of Batuan is situated around 10 kilometers from Ubud and around 15 kilometers from Denpasar. There are a number of other attractions to see in the village, which makes it an interesting place to visit when travelling between these cities. Although the Batuan Temple officially has no admission fee, a small donation from each visitor is expected.
