Pulaki Temple or Pura Pulaki is a Hindu shrine located in the hill bank and in front of the beautiful beach in north part of Bali. It is one of the biggest Hindu temples in Bali situated in the coastal side west part of Singaraja town or 1 hour drive to the west from the town. This temple is set on the flat land with stone hill bank as a back drop meanwhile the blue ocean is just in front of the temple. During the rainy season, the dry brown hills that back the temple turn sparkling green. The architecture is dominated by black and white stone as if some parts of the temple are the hills themeselves being carved.
On the other hand, Pulaki Temple has a spectacular view to be enjoyed. Entering the temple you arrive at the mid court, and from here the glamorous blue of the Javanese sea can be seen clearly framed by the green hills on the right and left side. There are more stairs to climb if you wish to enter the main court where people put their offerings and pray. The main court is not more silent as it should be because the monkeys are hanging out there waiting for the right moment to steal the fruit from the offering! People seem to get used to the noise made by the monkey and do their prayers with full concentration.
More spectacular views are available from the upper part of the temple compound, where there is a narrow path that can be a bit slippery during rainy days. Make sure you go through this path when you visit the temple. You’ll be trekking amidst the local corn fields while your eyes get seduced by the picturesque scenery of the ocean and hills, and the sound from the sea is chilling you down on a hot sunny day.
It is recommended place to visit in The Thousand of Temple Island when you get holiday, where you just book your trip through a reliable travel agency. I believe your trip will be awesome and unforgettable experience.
