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.

Lempuyang Temple's Highlights
 While enthusiastic hikers will enjoy the eastern portion of Bali's mountain landscape and cultural highlights, people who do not wish to climb to the peak of Lempuyang can still enjoy the magnificent views from the enormous Pura Penataran Agung temple at the foot of the mountain. It's the first site on the journey, and its towering dragon stairs make for a striking picture – excellent for photography. The greatest views are at the top of the stairs, where you can see all the way across the green forested slopes and to Mount Agung, Bali's highest peak and home to Besakih Temple.
How to Get to the Lempuyang Temple
Local motorcycle taxis can carry you up to the Penataran Agung, where the asphalt terminates (for a negotiable fee). They're useful for individuals who want to get a head start on their trek by cutting down on walking time from the parking lot. After taking in the sights at this initial stop, the main site of Lempuyang Temple is another thousand and a half or more steps up, which most people find scary. Nonetheless, locals think that pilgrims who have a heavy heart will never reach the summit. This adds to the spiritual component of the climb for the locals and many devotees who make the journey.
It's interesting to learn about Lempuyang Temple.
They are certain that you should not complain on your way up, other from keeping respectable behavior and conversation. Step after steep step, strong-willed pilgrims get to experience magnificent panoramas of the eastern Bali mountain range and shoreline, as well as the green surroundings and fresh mountain air. Although the grey macaques here aren't as interested or mischievous as their Uluwatu counterparts, it's best not to carry any loose gear or feed them. The Lempuyang Temple welcomes weary travelers with a beautiful vista and a relaxing place of relaxation after a 2-hour trek. The temple is smaller than the Penataran Agung, but the surroundings and tranquility have a more mysterious air to them. Following the prayers, the priest sprinkles refreshing holy water on the body, mind, and soul, which relaxes the body, mind, and soul.
