The massive Pura Pusering Jagat is said to be the head quarter of the old Pejeng kingdom. Dating from 1329, this sanctuary is visited by couples who supplicate at the stone lingam and yoni. Further back is a vast stone urn, with gods and Evils carved out on it in portrayal of the Mahabharata story 'Churning the Sea of Milk'.
Pura Luhur Batukau
Pura Tanah Lot is the most popular and picturesque temple in Bali, particularly at nightfall when the site is swarmed by droves of tourists. Yet again, it has all the legitimacy of a stage set – even the tower of rock that the sanctuary sits upon is a splendid architecture (the whole structure was disintegrating) and more than one-third of the rock is artificial.
Pura Taman Ayun
Pura Luhur Ulu Watu
This temple sits gloriously on the southwestern tip of the promontory, on sheer bluffs that drop straight into the endless surf. You enter through a unique arched door flanked by statues of Ganesha. Inside, the walls of coral are cladded with impressive carvings inspired by Bali's mythology.
On the inclines of Gunung Batukau, Pura Luhur Batukau was the state sanctuary when Tabanan was an autonomous kingdom. It has seven-roofed sanctums committed to Maha Dewa, the mountain's guardian soul, and other holy places, Bratan, Buyan and Tamblingan lakes. This is surely the most divine temple you can visit without much of a hard work.
Pura Tanah Lot
The gigantic state temple of Pura Taman Ayun, encompassed by a wide, rich canal, was the primary sanctuary of the Mengwi kingdom, which stood still until 1891, when it was vanquished by the neighboring kingdoms of Tabanan and Badung. The huge, open sanctuary was landscaoed in 1634 and remodeled in 1937.
