Temples & Religious Sites

List of amazing religious & culturally relevant  sightseeing spots worth visiting while exploring Bali.

Bali’s temples are indeed holy to the Balinese and more often than not, you will witness a ceremony when visiting the temple. Most holy and most important temple is Besakih, a towering mountain-top structure of many smaller temples and staircases. It is known as the “mother temple” and is treated with great veneration. This has been a site for pilgrimages for over 1,000 years, even surviving the nearby volcanic eruptions of Gunung Agung. Another very important temple for Balinese people is Pura Danu Bratan, a picturesque site built at the shore of lake Bratan (Beratan) in the mountain highlands near Bedugul. It is not as big as it looks like on pictures, but a very scenic place and very important to the Balinese.
