The Pura Luhur Batukau (Temple of Luhur Batukau).
It’s located on the slopes of the volcano Gunung Batukau and it’ is surrounded by green forest.
This is definitely one of the most mystical temples of Bali.
It has a “meru” (Hindu shrine) with seven roofs dedicated to Maha Dewa, the goddess of the mountain, and it has altars dedicated to the lakes Bratan, Buyan and Tamblingan.
Visiting this temple is a pleasure because it is rarely visited by tourists.
The only sounds you can hear are the songs of birds and the litany of priests.
