About

Puseh Batuan Temple and its twin temple, Pura Dasar are situated in the small village of Batuan, south of Ubud. Together with the Pura Dalem, the three temples represent the Tri Kahyangan concept from the 10th century. Pura Dasar is a shrine of worship to the creator God Brahma, Pura Puseh is a shrine of worship to the caretaker God Vishnu, and Pura Dalem is a shrine of worship to Lord Shiva the Destroyer.

Away from the riotous towns of South Bali and not quite at the cultural hotspot of Ubud, travelers looking for the road less traveled and less crowded landmarks can plan a visit to the twin temples. The temples which have stood since the 11th century are classic examples of Balinese temple architecture. Its humble and quiet surroundings understate the intricacies of the temple and its sculptures. This religious site is well known for its traditional Balinese art. Sometimes, travelers come by during a major religious ceremony and see the communal hall in Puseh Batuan in full splendor, covered in fruit and flower offerings. At other times, local handicrafts can be found on display from Batuan artisans.

Remember that the temples are religious sites and as such, travelers should pay special attention to their dress and behavior, like speaking quietly, refraining from wearing  “disrespectful” clothes, and tying a sash around the waist. Sashes and sarongs can be borrowed at the temple at no extra charge.
