Pura Meru was built in 1720 and dedicated to Hindu Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu & Shiva. It is a very nice place for photography. No restaurant or stall nearby. Also need to pay for parking fee - 3,000 rupiah. Entrance fee - 6,000 rupiah.

This temple is quite nice and its opposite to the mayura garden, so you can visit both if them together as we did... I guess 20k is quite a lot for 3 courtyard temple with nothing so unique inside, but well, there are not many...More
