One of a few temples we visited. Weather was hot and extra hot due to the sarong needed to enter the temple grounds.

Naturally important to the community and good for photos but it was very busy. Fortunately for us, we arrived prior to a set of bus tours who kind of followed us as we moved through the grounds so it could have been far busier if we’d followed them.

We stopped here with our guide as the other temple we were going to see had the road closed off due to major storm damage. This was ok, looks like it hasn't had the love or effort recently with the gardens full of weeds etc. Hopefully it gets the attention soon.

Although this temple is almost 1000 year old, it is very well maintained. There is a very serene spiritual feel about this temple that is beyond words. Highly recommended for a temple visit.

A most notable landmark is the village temple, known as Pura Puseh with intricate stone carvings. It is located in the northern part of the village, 200 metres off the main road. The temple also has an inscription that testifies to the date of founding of Batuan in 1022 AD. The temple underwent restoration in 1992. It is a five-tiered gateway tower, clearly influenced by Indian religious architecture. Its icons and decorations, however, are typically Balinese in style. The roof of the temple is made of the fibre of chromatic black palm tree. The maintenance of the temple is done by the residents of the village. The temple is situated on the main road from Denpasar to Ubud. A great place to visit and lots of pictures to be taken!

Stopped at temple that dated from 944 AD. Cost us 40,000 RP ($2.47) for wraps to tour the temple grounds. I was not very impressed. Entrance sign said "Puseh PR Desa Desaaoat Batan Isaka 944". Another sign said "Cagar Budaya, Pura Puseh Batan". There were a couple of colorful photo opportunities, but overall not a lot to see.
