Gunung Kawi Sebatu Temple is Pretty and Peaceful

They say Gunung Kawi Sebatu Temple is one of the least visited temples in Bali, yet it’s considered to be one of the most peaceful, tranquil and prettiest sanctuaries you can think of. Located just 13 kilometres north of Ubud, this temple shouldn’t be confused with the Gunung Kawi Temple that is located 2 kilometres south of TirtaEmpul Temple.

The temple complex is located in the highlands of the small village of Sebatu and is surrounded by three walls and a steep, forested slope. The temple is built on a natural spring and therefore boasts several ponds and pools. A large lake will immediately catch your eye when walking down the stairs from the entrance. In the centre of the lake is a fountain, featuring a statue of the Goddess of knowledge, art and music, Sarasvati (Yep, the same lady as to whom the Sarasvati Temple in Ubud’s center is dedicated). Behind the lake is a walled-off area with two pools meant for bathing. Don’t hesitate, feel free to follow the “mandi” sign and take a dip, but note that cameras are not allowed in the bathing area. Continuing your exploration north, you will enter the elevated, main temple grounds. This is where you find many shrines, one of which is Candi Bentar; beautifully surrounded by water and making for a great opportunity to shoot a picture-perfect postcard photo.
