Must see temples in Bali

One of the most beautiful temples in Bali, Tanah Lot definitely lives up to its fame, with its dramatic setting. Tanah Lot means “Land in Sea” in the Balinese language.

Tanah Lot is located at the edge of the rocks, giving it a breathtaking view and look, we went early in the morning to avoid crowds, we did not get to see the sunset, which is very popular among the tourists.

Uluwatu’s famous Pura Luhur temple which dates back to the 10th century and is perched high on a cliff top looking out to sea on Bali’s south west tip. This is a great opportunity  take some amazing photos. Famous for not only its unique position, Uluwatu also boasts one of the oldest temples in Bali, Pura Uluwatu.

Please be careful of the monkeys, I was watching a few of monkeys in the bushes and a big male came out of nowhere and took my cell phone, I even had the death grip on it, as I was warned about them previously by our driver.  They are quick and very strong.

Goa Lawah Temple is one of Bali’s most important temples. It features a complex built around a cave opening that is inhabited by hordes of bats, and its name translates to ‘Bat Cave’

Ulun Danu Beratan Temple is a water temple situated in the area of Lake Bratan, Bedugul Bali, Indonesia.   This was my favorite temple, we went early in the morning to try to avoid the crowds.  I really loved the flowers in front of the temple.  We were very lucky to have a nice cloudy day for pictures.

Taman Ayun literally translates as beautiful garden.  Unfortunely the water surrounding the temples was absent for some reason, so we could not really see the real beauty of the temples.  This temple was probably the most quiet of all the temples we visited.
