Mount Kawi, Tampaksiring

Visit Mount Kawi, an 11th century temple and historical site. Set amidst thick and rich forests and tiered rice fields, the main temple features 10 shrines cut into the rocky cliff face that were believed to be dedicated to King Anak Wungsu of the Udayana dynasty and his queens. Its inspiring, monumental design and surrounding natural landscape make this an atmospheric and photogenic place to walk and learn about the religious heritage of the area. Wear good shoes to visit the temple--300 steps lead down to the main site, and the surrounding forest is well-worth exploring during a longer visit.

  • The temple is perfectly integrated with the nature of the area. You have to download endless stairs to reach the tombs carved in the mountain area and the temple itself. Good or bad, as you look at it, is down the road you will find many souvenir shops and handicrafts in the zone, as well as exotic vegetation and beautiful typical paddy fields, so low entertained. Visit recommended, although only with thinking that then touch up all those stairs, gets you laughing and seems that you get no never!
