According to legend, the plans of a thief at night when the moon fell out of the sky and shone brightly upon him from a tree. He urinated on it to try and put it out; the moon promptly exploded, leaving behind the ancient drum you see here today. It is thought to be between 1000-2000 years old. At 1.6 meters in diameter, 1.86 metres in height, it is said to be to the largest single cast drum in the world. And while that is the main attraction of this temple complex, the state temple of the old Pejeng Kingdom, remember to also check out the rest of the 10th and 12th century temple structure, the many Hindu carvings and statues, the chronogram at the entrance, the split gate, and the Seat of Ganesh in the temple courtyard. You’ll find concession stands outside the temple.
