Uluwatu Temple

Local namePura Luhur Uluwatu
LocationBali, Indonesia

Built at the edge of a high cliff, it is hard to say whether this place is loved for its dramatic setting and architecture or for the views and sunsets. Both are stunning.

This temple dates back to the 10th century and it is one of the nine temples that are said to protect Bali from evil spirits. It features a Brahmin statue which is considered to be a representation of Dhang Hyang Dwijendra, a Saivite religious figure and a Hindu traveller from the 16th century. The human-shaped statues with elephant heads guard the two temple entrances.

A small gang of monkeys inhabits the temple. You will encounter them on the pathway leading to the main entrance to the temple, so don't bring anything expensive or shiny which could draw their attention to you - they love to steal from the visitors. However, if they manage to steal something from you, they might give it back for a piece of fruit or a peanut.
