Puseh Batuan Temple - Review
To the north of the village you will find an ancient 11 Century Temple. I just talked to have been founded in 1022 Anno Domini. Though architecture is Indian the decorations are Balinese. The main gate looks like it was once whole but then was broken into two parts. Beyond it you will find a garden with many statues of deities scattered around. Inside you will find a three level Meru, which is a sort of Balinese Pagoda, and it is dedicated to the Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. The Padmasana building is where the islands’ one true Hindu God, the Sang Hyang Widhi, is worshipped. The temple is maintained by the villagers and is also owned by them.

Puseh Batuan Temple, Bali Reviews
Easy spot (by scooter) to visit a relatively large temple complex. They charge you for the decent clothes and for the entrance fee, but it is reasonable. Nice stalls to drink a coconut outside. (If you walk around you will find many other temples to visit for free, equaly interesting)

Almost 1000 years old, this temple can be categorized as Puseh temple according to the concept of “Tri Kahyangan or Tri Murti”. This is also makes this temple as the oldest temple in Bali island. The Tri Murti is the teaching that taught to the local people in the 10th century. The Tri Murti includes 3 temples which are the Village temple, Puseh temple, and Dalem temple. The Village temple is for worshiping the Brahma gods (the creator), the Puseh Temple is for worshiping the Wisnu gods (the caretaker), while the Dalem temple is for worshiping the Siwa gods (the destroyer). n this Batuan temple, you can see an ancient building called Wantilan, this place was used as a meeting room and practice every kind of dance of Bali as Gambuh Dance, Pendet, etc. Before you enter the temple there were some local people in Wantilan will lend ‘Kamben’ (traditional costumes Bali). This is a must for you to wear ‘Kamben Bali’ to show respect and honor of the sacredness “Puseh Stone Temple of Village”. It’s all free, you will not be charged for admission. However, local people expect any tourist visiting this temple can donate the amount of money to support the maintenance of the temple. There is provided a simple donation box. Every donation you give should be based on a sense of sincerity, where the Balinese know it was called “Medana punia”. The temple also provides a spacious parking lot, so that the tourists will easily find a parking place for their vehicles while visiting this place.
Entrance fee/ Sarong fee 10000IDR per person as of April 2018. We were here around 12 noon and it was blazing hot so we couldn't explore as much as we wanted. It's a small temple complex with nice sculptures. One of them the World Turtle which is a giant turtle believed by Hindus carried the world atop its shell.
