Pura Lempuyang ( Lempuyang Temple )
Ancient Mountain Temple in East Bali Gate of Heaven
Lempuyang Temple is one of Bali's most revered and oldest temples. It is comparable to Besakih Temple. This temple is also thought to precede the majority of the island's Hindu temples. It's an excellent complement to any East Bali itinerary, particularly for the fit and adventurous.
The main temple is located at 1,175 meters above sea level, on the summit of Mount Lempuyang, which bears the same name. The bigger Penataran Agung temple on the mountain's slope is a popular spot for Instagram photos. It's a tough journey up almost 1,700 steps to reach the temple at the summit. The prize view from the top is a wide overview of East Bali's rich landscape.
Lempuyang Temple, also known as Pura Lempuyang Luhur, is one of Bali's oldest and most revered temples, ranking with Besakih (the island's "mother temple"). The temple is also thought to precede the majority of the island's Hindu temples. The main temple, located at 1,175 meters above sea level on the pinnacle of the namesake Mount Lempuyang in East Bali, is a must-see for the fit and adventurous.
The heights are reached through a steep staircase with approximately 1,700 steps, with several other temples and hordes of grey long-tailed macaques inhabiting the surrounding chilly mountain forests as attractions along the route.
