Pura Luhur Batukaru Reviews & Ratings
This is one of the Hindu temples in Bali. It takes about one and a half hour from the Denpasar area to this temple via a car. Please observe proper clothing specially for women. They require the women to cover up upon entering the temple. For men, they also require you to wear a sarong, though this is available on site. You can also buy your own sarong if you prefer
It was nice but there wasn’t very much to see.
One of the wonderful temple in Bali.located in the middle of the nature.there is a magic around here, rice terraces, clean rivers,hot springs, batukaru mountain is recommended as well to explore.
One of ancient temple, has a nice ambience n located in montain area. Very quiet place.
Amazing serenity and very calm temple. Because it is so far out it is not over run with tourists, so you get to really take in the spirituality of the temple. When we visited there was lite drizzle which I felt added to this beautiful place.
