Gunung Kawi Sebatu

One of Bali's Most Iconic Temples

Bali, the famous island province belonging to Indonesia, is where you will find the Hindu majority of the nation. Therefore you will discover many Hindu places of worship on this tropical paradise.


The temple is a mere twenty minute drive from Ubud, so if you’re vacationing at a wellness and spa resort in the city such as COMO Uma Ubud then you’re in luck. All you have to do is follow the main road that leads towards Lake Batur. Finding the temple is very easy since there are many signs to guide you.

The Main Courtyard

This is will be the first aspect of the temple you will experience upon entry and you are almost guaranteed to feel a sense of tranquillity and peace of mind. One of the most beautiful aspects of the courtyard is a large pond filled with colourful fish swimming gleefully as a statue of the goddess Sarasvati watches over them.

Candi Bentar and the Ritualistic Pools

Moving through the doors at the far side of the courtyard will take you to the ritualistic bathing pools. Water is supplied to the pools with a total of ten water-sprouts, and this area is simply spectacular. The Candi Bentar shrine is also situated in this room.

Bathing Pools

The large bathing pools of the temple are situated behind the lake and are a sight to behold. They are enclosed by high walls which restrict views from the outside.
