Pura Luhur Uluwatu

Pura Uluwatu and the Indian Ocean

The temple at the most southern tip of Bali is famous for its spectacular views over the Indian Ocean, its sunsets, and the naughty monkeys populating temple and surroundings.

Ulu Watu means head or edge of rock: The temple is built at the edge of a 70 meter high, steep cliff looking out over the Indian Ocean.

It is one of Bali’s nine key directional temples, and one of the Pura Sad Kahyangan, the six big temples of Bali. It dates back to the 11th century, with remains found suggesting early structures from the 8th century.

 

Accessibility

Just recently, the paths along the coastline to the left and right of the temple, offering fantastic views over the cliffs and the temple, were equipped with ramps and slopes. The Uluwatu temple itself is not easy accessible. We provide portable ramps and organise carriers when needed.
