Temples on Bali

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.

Gede Perancak temple
Once neglected, now famous

The magnificent white-stone shrine sets a vision on the Perancak riverbank, eight kilometers west of Rambut Siwi and close to the district capital of Negara. The first visited place by the holy Dang Hyang Nirartha is a worth-a-visit legend.

Gusti Ngurah Rangsasa that disrespectfully ruled the area at the time of the priestís arrival used to require the new comer to pray at his temple. After his leaving, the surrounding community rebuilt the temple to honor the holy priest.
