Its great beauty, the cultural heritage it portrays, and the amazing and unique architectural designs of the structures as well as the gardens of this Royal Temple complex have made it one of the most sought after attractions amongst locals as well as visitors to Bali. From the structural characteristics of the main temple to the ponds which surround it, each aspect of this complex has been well thought out and built using the traditional Balinese construction methods.
The most interesting aspect of this attraction is its tall structure which features the traditional Balinese architectural styles and how it also complements the Hindu traditions. The highest structure is about 20 metres in height and each, though the main style is of multi-roofed high-rise, has its own unique style to give it individuality as each represents and is built in honour of a different god or goddess.
Amongst the other attractions in this compound, especially considering the lovely garden area, the Water Fountain claims most attention. Located in the front garden of the compound its adornments of lotus plants and fountain complement the lovely temple structures in the background.
The large fishpond which encircles the main temple area is also a fascinating addition to this beautiful attraction. It is designed in a way to make the temple look as if it actually is floating on the water and is also a lovely surprise for those approaching the temple from the garden side.
