Gunung Kawi Sebatu

Ubud Region

The western approach to this water temple in Sebatu offers wonderful views down on to the complex – many visitors are content to admire these from the side of the road rather than entering the actual temple. Inside, spring-fed pools are set against a lush green backdrop. The temple is dedicated to Vishnu and is used locally for purification rituals.
