In every village in Bali, there are several temples and at least one small one in each home. One can therefore safely say that there are more temples than homes in Bali. Most of these temples are shrines and might not be regarded as actual temples, but the number of walled compounds is believed to reach to a total of 10,000.
The Luhur Batukaru temple is situated at Wangaya Gede village about 21 km North-west from Tabanan town. This temple includes one of Sad Kahyangan or Six Holy National Temple in Bali.
The temple is surrounded by thick vegetation and invigorating fresh air. In this temple there are old Balinese remains. Many visitors come to visit this temple, both local and foreign, especially on its temple festival, which is usually held on Umanis Galungan, one day after Galungan.
