This temple has amazing authentic Balinese style, and this temple is one of the ancient temples in Gianyar. I hope you must use the kamen (Balinese cloth) to keep the holiest of this temple. This place also offers some trekking spot for you trekking in there and has nice panorama of the nature. I believe it will be the best experience during spent your holiday in Bali.
