Gunung Kawi Tampak Siring Temple

Gunung Kawi Tampak Siring is a famous tourist destination, one of Bali’s oldest and largest monuments. The complex, located on the river Pakrisan, comprises 10 rock-cut shrines, stand in 7 meters high, and carved into the cliff face.

Each Candi is believed to be a memorial to a member of the 11th century Balinese royalty, but it’s not certain. Legends say that the whole group of memorials was carved out of the rock face in one hard-working night by the mighty fingernails of Kebo Iwa. The whole complex is dedicated to Anak Wungsu, his wives, concubines and in this case of the remote 10th candi, to a royal minister.

Gunung Kawi with its ancient omission will be the right place to visit during your vacation in the island.
