This picturesque town in central Bali is known for its ancient temples and famed archeological sites. The Gunung Kawi Temple and Senang Hati Foundation have been drawing history-loving travelers to their gates for decades and the sloping hills of this former kingdom prove ideal for visitors looking to explore the natural landscapes of this stunning island.
Travelers can explore the iconic Tirta Empul Temple, with its natural pools and public showers used for sacred cleansing rituals, or tour the larger-than-life stone reliefs of Gunung Kawi. Tampak Siring is also home to one of six presidential palaces. A visit to this more modern structure, which was built in the late 1950s for President Soekarno, offers up incredible views of nearby Tampaksiring Tirta Empul Temple and Mount Agung.
Tampak Siring is located in central Bali in the Gianyar Regency of Indonesia, about 20 km northeast of Ubud town center.
