Lempuyang Temple

https://www.instagram.com/adventurouspostcard/

Lempuyang means ‘The Lights of God’. A complex of seven temples, the most spectacular of which is Pura Agung Lempuyang Tara Penah, nestled on the hillside 11 km from Tirta Gangga. Here, the dazzling white split gate perfectly frames Mt Agung, and the temple guardians – three pairs of colossal sea serpents – border a trio of towering staircases, but this is only the beginning. One kilometer further on, a stairway of 1700 steps winds through the forest up to the temple of Lempuyang Luhur, 768 meters above sea level on the top of Belibis Hill. The climb takes about 2 hours.

This is one of Bali’s oldest and most important temples and the intense spiritual energy of this place is almost tangible. In fact, in the 1960s, before electricity reached Bali, a space satellite reported the observation of a blue beam emanating from Earth; the precise location was plotted and the source was confirmed as Pura Lempuyang Luhur.

The major festival in Lempuyang is held every 6 months on the Thursday after Galungan (every 210 days). It offers the perfect blend of nature and beautiful culture.
