Reviews of Batukaru

Pura Luhur Batukaru is one of Bali's temples. Situated at the foot of the Batukaru Volcano, it's got an enchanting atmosphere.

My suggestion:
Make sure you wear sturdy shoes, as the paths to the temple are gravelled. 

The temple situated at the foot of the volcano is soothing. Lost in the middle of nowhere (a dense forest not far from town), it's in a lush, humid environment, which only lends to the mystical feel of the place. 

If you take a walk here, you'll get lost in your own, little world and feel the sense of calm as you make the most of its quiet. It doesn't attract a lot of visitors, which only adds to the mood. This temple encourages introspection.

What's more I loved the journey to Pura Luhur Batukaru from Ubud. The mountain views and rice fields were stunning, even if typical of Bali.

An interesting fact: it's one of nine directional temples in Bali, its function being to protect the island
