Alternative Temples Tour

Tour Bali’s alternative temples: Besakih Temple, Goa Lawah Temple and Kehen Temple

Not keen on the swarming crowds at Bali's main temples? Allow us to take you to ones just as beautiful off the beaten track – that means fewer tourists, more charm and the tranquillity you've been seeking in this magical island.

We begin at the Kerta Gosa Pavilion in Klung Kung. The intact justice court building formerly used by the high king of Bali will give you some idea of the power and grandeur of the Balinese monarchs before the Dutch arrived. Keep an eye out for the paintings on the ceilings depicting karmic results of your actions! The lovely grounds are home to intricate statues, a little museum, a lake, a pond and small art collection. Goa Lawah Temple, up next, is beautiful as it faces the sea. Also known as 'Bat Cave', its complex is built over a hilly outcrop home to thousands of bats (and a giant snake king, per local legend). We will then make a stop at Bukit Jambul, known for its panoramic views of the rice terraces. As you must be peckish at this point, we will slow the pace down for lunch overlooking Mt. Agung. Bellies happy, we flit to our next destination: Besakih Temple, Bali's thousand-year-old 'Mother Temple' perched 1,000 metres high on the southwestern slopes of Mount Agung. It is meant to be the island's largest holy site divided into three main complexes, each dedicated to the Hindu trinity. The last of today's temples, Kehen Temple, is a multi-level temple on a hill home to a great Banyan Tree. An untouched gem, it requires a bit of a hike to get to the well-preserved natural sanctuary. Finally, the trip ends with a visit to Penglipuran Traditional Village, a traditional countryside community in the highlands.
