Uluwatu Temple is a unique place that is highly jutting into the sea about 70 meters above sea level as if it floated on sea water and only the eastern part is related to land. Indonesian (Indian) ocean around the temple has high waves. This causes the region is favored by surfing lover.
If you see the temple to the west, you’ll see beautiful sea views, especially at sunset. In addition to seeing the beautiful scenery, you also can see and play with the monkeys. This Luhur temple was established by the master Kuturan Marakata during the 9th century. Another opinion says that this temple can not be separated with a history of Dang Hyang Nirartha / Rauh Wawu Sakti of Daha (East Java), a pastor spreading Hindu religion.
This tour begins from GWK Park (Garuda Wisnu Kencana) then on to Uluwatu Temple, a cliff edge temple at 95 meters above sea level, with fantastic views of the Indian Ocean. This is the masterpiece of Dhang Hyang Nirartha, a holy priest from the 15th century, and a great place to watch the sunset over a sea filled with sailing outriggers (Jukung). Later we will witness the performance of the monkey, Kecak and Fire Dance, the most unique of Balinese dances and featuring the Ramayana Story. We then move on to Jimbaran Bay for a romantic dinner in a traditionally setup beach cafe.
