Lempuyang Temple is also known as Pura Lempuyang Luhur and it is one of the oldest and most visited temples in Bali. The majority of Hindu population in Bali comes to this temple, thus it has gained much popularity among the tourists coming to Bali. The main temple that is the mother temple lies about 1175 meters above sea level on the peak of Mount Lempuyang in East Bali. One can reach the heights via a steep staircase that would posit some real life adventure and you will be challenged to count 1700 steps watching the irresistible attractions in the surrounding.
The hordes of long-tailed macaques will surprise your visions. The ardent lovers of hiking and trekking will fall for the matured blend of mountains and the serenity bowing its head before you. You can ask for motorcycle taxis of the locals to take you till the asphalt ends at the Penataran Agung and then again you have to climb other thousand steps that would lead you to immerse in extraordinary sights.
Highlights: However, there is a strong belief among the villagers that you have to maintain a respectful behavior and you should not complain about the challenging way up. If you climb up the steps with a heavy heart, you cannot reach the top but lose your stamina in between. The calm and cherish-able serenity at the top would let you bewitched for long and the small temple owns rather a heightened mysticism.
Location: On top of Mt. Lempuyang, Indonesia
