Lempuyang Temple

  Karangasem, Bali - Indonesia

Lempuyang Temple or Pura Lempuyang Luhur is a Balinese Hindu Temple or Pura situated in Karangasem, Bali, on the slope of Mount Lempuyang. The temple is considered one of Bali's highly regarded temples as part of a complex of Pura surrounding Mount Lempuyang.

Mount Lempuyang temples, represented by the highest temple at the peak of Mount Lempuyang, Pura Lempuyang Luhur, is one of the Sad Kahyangan Jagad, or the "six sanctuaries of the world," Bali's six most sacred places of worship. The main temple is located at 1,175 meters above sea level on the top of the namesake Mount Lempuyang in East Bali, a standout on any travel itinerary for the fit and adventurous.

The heights can be reached through a winding staircase of more than 1,700 steps, with sights along the way including several other temples and hordes of black long-tailed macaques inhabiting the cool mountain forests around them.

They strongly believe that you should not moan on the way up, apart from upholding respectful behavior and expression. Strong-willed visitors, along with the green scenery and clean mountain air, enjoy magnificent views of the eastern Bali mountain range and the coastline step by step.The gray macaques here are not as adventurous and mischievous as their relatives in Uluwatu, but it is a rule of thumb not to bring or feed any loose clothing.

The Lempuyang Temple welcomes weary pilgrims with a spectacular view and a relaxing place of rest after an approximate2-hour climb. The temple itself is smaller than the Penataran Agung, but the setting and calmness have a more mystical feeling. Prayers are accompanied by healing holy water sprayed by the priest calming body, mind and soul.
