The Temple is part of the concept of "Tri Kahyangan or Tri Murti" taught by Mpu Kuturan around the 10th century to the Balinese Hindu community at the time. Tri Kahyangan including 3 temples, the Pura Desa or Village Temple as a place to worship God Brahma, Pura Puseh to worship God Vishnu, and the Pura Dalem to worship Lord Shiva.Pura Desa and Pura Puseh Batuan were founded in the year 944 isaka (1020 AD). Nearly 1000 years old. Not all existing buildings were old buildings here, there are some that have undergone renovation. The Meru, Bale-bale, grand Gates and statues are showing us how thick the Balinese ornaments in this temple. At temple parking area, we could see a stage which a place use as a meeting hall and to practice any kind of Balinese dances as Gambuh dance, Pendet dance, etc. Then, in the middle yard of temple there is a long building / bale called the Bale Agung and Bale Kulkul (a gong mad by wood or bamboo). In this yard there is also a high entrance Balinese Gate called the Kori Agung, which is flanked by the many guardian statues shaped the giant sculpture. The function of Kori Agung is the door where the exit and entry for the gods symbolized by a small statue called Pratima. Next to the Kori Agung there are two small doors as a place of exit and entry of people into the temple's main yard. In the main yard of the temple there are some three story Meru and Bale Pengiyasan as a symbol of the temple of Besakih, there is also a building called Padmasana as a place of worship to Sang Hyang Widhi, the only one Bali Hindu's God. If we want to know the ancient sculptures in this temple, please come to the back yard, a building called Wantilan Purbakala as a place for all the ancient sculptures of this temple, here we can learn about the ancient sculptures and other types of ancient stone.

One of a few temples we visited. Weather was hot and extra hot due to the sarong needed to enter the temple grounds.

Naturally important to the community and good for photos but it was very busy. Fortunately for us, we arrived prior to a set of bus tours who kind of followed us as we moved through the grounds so it could have been far busier if we’d followed them.

We stopped here with our guide as the other temple we were going to see had the road closed off due to major storm damage. This was ok, looks like it hasn't had the love or effort recently with the gardens full of weeds etc. Hopefully it gets the attention soon.

Stopped here with our driver. You need to pay to enter and to wear a sarong.
Inside is very beautiful however with so much here there is no signage to explain what you are actually looking at!
Took some lovely photos however which I could have learnt something too.
Clearly still used by the local community.

I liked the architecture of the place. You can take very nice photos.
Temple is small but being one of the oldest in the place so you must visit.
If you are doing the tour make this a stop during your visit but if not, you will find more fascinating and bigger temples in Bali to visit.

The temple was very sweet and pretty. However there is not much there in way of explanation and without our tour guide I feel we would not have enjoyed it as much. Our tour guide explained everything to us which it made it very meaningful. It was a small donation to enter and you also wore a sarong which they provided. Note they gave the sarong to everyone even if you were wearing long trousers.

Really beautiful temple. Not too crowded and very peaceful to wander around. You need to wear a sarong, even if you wear long pants, and charge a modest 10.000 Rp donation. Really enjoyed the beautiful grounds.

Puseh Batuan Temple is a local Balinese Hindu temple looked after by the local resident of Batuan countryside. Entrance fee is IDR10000.

The temple is designed very beautiful with full of Balinese ornaments and the roof temple building is made from the fiber of chromatic black palm tree. Batuan Temple is mentioned in historical records as far back as 1000 years. The Hindu and Indian influence in the region in the village is evident from the carvings and temples.

We have to wear a sarong offered by the temple people while visiting this temple complex and make sure bare knees and shoulders are not visible.

It is strategically located beside of the main road from Denpasar to Ubud.

Third stop on our Ubud trip and this was a schedule stop. IR10,000 (AUD1) gets you admission and also a sarong to cover immodest knees. It is a fairly extensive complex of various buildings, shrines, gates and water features. Lovely ornamentation for the entry gates and each succeeding set of gates as you passed through the various areas within the walls. Excellent details on the various sculptures. The turtle featured in the fountains, both live and also the marvelous structure in the pond. Remnants of earlier stonework and carvings are fastidiously stored under cover. Locals are obvious staunch worshippers, the grounds and structures are well maintained, offerings to the gods are visible throughout and the entire area was neat and tidy. Wonderful complex and nearly 1,000 years old.
