About Gunung Kawi Temple

Gunung Kawi is an 11th-century temple in Tampaksiring that is spread across either side of the Pakerisan river. It comprises 10 rock-cut shrines that are carved into 7-metre-high. Sheltered niches of the sheer cliff face. Carved by hand into the hillside rocks a thousand years ago, this temple showcased the worshippers’ determination in an ancient time.

There are four groups of buildings sculptured, three temples and a Buddhist temple on the Gunung Kawi. This is presumed to be the burial complex of King Anak Wungsu and his many wives. This temple, known as the “Valley of the Kings” is beautifully located in a river valley surrounded by beautiful rice fields, forest and river.

You first along a steep staircase to walk down. Along the way you will have stunning views of the valley and rice fields. As you walk through the stone entrance turn left to view five magnificent 7 meter high statutes. If you look directly across the boulder strewn creek, you’ll see the other four shrines. Reached by climbing down 300 steps, the location at the bottom of a steep valley lined with paddy fields is quite stunning. The structures are carved into the sides of a steep river valley, and the river crossed by twisting trees and vines

Why Gunung Kawi Temple Should Be On My Bucket List?

Gunung Kawi is one of the favorite Bali Temple. Detailed carvings right on the hill are stunning and lush nature surrounds you. As a hidden bonus, when you make it all the way to the “end” of the temple grounds (when you turn left after the bridge) follow the little path on the left until you see a sign that says “Stop” – but keep going. You’ll have a short but beautiful walk in the rice fields, forest and will eventually reach a secluded waterfall where you can go for a swim!
