Pura Pusering Jagad

Hindu Temple in Ubud

Dating from 1329, this temple in Pejeng, 5km east of central Ubud, is visited by young couples who pray at the stone lingam and yoni. Also in the compound is a large stone urn, with elaborate but worn carvings of gods and demons searching for the elixir of life in a depiction of the Mahabharata tale 'Churning the Sea of Milk'. The temple is located on a small paved lane running west of the main road.
