Pura Gunung Lebah


This old temple, which sits on a jutting rock at the confluence of two tributaries of Sungai Cerik (campuan means 'two rivers'), has recently benefited from a huge building campaign. The setting is magical; listen to the rushing waters while admiring the impressive meru (multi-tiered shrine) and a wealth of elaborate carvings.
