This temple was not on our itenary, but our driver guide brought us here as we were travelling in the vicinity. The temple is located in the village of Gelgel, in the district of Klungkung. Pura Dasar Buana Gelgel was built in honor of the holy teacher Mpu Ghana who had an important role in the development of Hinduism in Bali.
When we visited this temple, some prayers were going on . However there were only a few tourist around. The complex temple is built in a beautiful and wide area. The entrance gate or "Candi Bentar", is beautiful of the ancient architectural style. At the entrance area, there are huge banyan trees that flank the walkway. Inside the complex are several shrines in the typical 'Pine tree' architecture. Prayers were going on inside, so we decided to avoid going to the prayer area. There were not much tourist, probably not on the tourist map. Its worth a visit if you are in the vicinity. As usual bring a hat, water bottle, sun block and a camera.More
