Be sure to note the beautiful painted ceiling in the small pavilion in the center of the water feature. Remember to wear long pants or a sarong and sash.

This intact royal temple gives you some idea of the power and grandeur of the Balinese kings (the idland was divided into several small kingdoms) before the Dutch conquered it.

Oh to be a king and embody your royal power by building an elegant stone temple that floats in the center of a grand cut-stone garden pool. At great ceremonies, the temple would fill with subjects bowing to the glory at once divine and temporal embodied in the sacred-king seated in regal splendor on the floating temple.

The painted roofs (restored along the lines of badly deteriorated originals ) on the roofs of the temple and judicial pavilions) are particularly notable.

Not a lot of stairs. No pesky vendors inside. Nor to they impose one of the dreadful mandatory guides. (see my other reviews)

Quite old temple but cherished with all its goodness. You will have to wear their traditional cloth wrapped around your waist (Like a Loonogee) and then enter the temple. I personally enjoyed the gamelan and the peaceful silence inside the temple.

Everytime we visit Bali we visit the remaining buildings of the palace. Very little is left after the puputan against the Dutch at the start of the 20th century. The two pavilions have ornately painted ceilings and tranquil gardens. There is the large candi bentar (split gate) in one corner and a museum which seems to have had the same displays for the last 16 years. There is a small entrance fee which includes the price of a sarong if you do not have one with you. There are some kids who may hassle you for money in the grounds. The puputan monument is clearly visible from the grounds and the market is well worth a stroll.
