Located at the southern point of Bukit Peninsula, Pura Luhur Uluwatu (also called Uluwatu Temple) is a famous ancient sea temple built on the tip of a cliff, 90 metres above the Indian Ocean. The temple can be an important landmark and mandatory see in Bali. Like Tanah Lot Just, visitors are required to pay an entry fee in order to enter the certain area. I possibly could not remember the purchase price because these were included in our tour package. Uluwuta opens daily from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm for site visitors. For worship purposes, it is open up for 24 hours daily. Souvenirs shops are available at the entrance to the temple.
But unlike Tanah Lot, Uluwatu is less commercialized, touristy and congested because of its remote control location. You might seldom find anyone offering to consider your photograph for a cost or selling you something. We paid the entrance fee and were given sarongs to wear. After gaining the sarongs, we walked down a stepped pathway on the Indian Ocean.
Plenty of trees and shrubs are produced along the road to provide color during sunny times. In Balinese language “Ulu” means “top” or “tip” and “Watu” means “rock”. So, Pura Luhur Uluwatu identifies the temple built on the end of a rock. Uluwatu Temple is one of the oldest temple in Bali. Year old temple is perched atop of a steep cliff overlooking the stunning Indian Sea The thousand.
Just like Tanah Lot, it is built to protect the island from the evil sea spirits and is one of the seven sea temple that form a string along the coastline of Bali. The temple is considered to be one of the nine Kahyangan Jagat (directional temples) in Bali, which is intended to protect evil spirits from the island.

All these temples are designed in auspicious locations that are believed to bring all the best to the island. Among the nine, 6 are categorized as Sad Kahyangan or Six Sanctuaries of the global world. Uluwatu temple is undoubtedly one of the Six Sanctuaries of the World. The Six Sanctuaries of the World are the most holiest place of worship in Bali and are situated in six key points on the island.
The keeping the temples is believe to provide spiritual balance to the island. Various inscriptions have indicated that the temple was founded by Mpu Kunturan, a Majapahit monk who have also established several other important temples in Bali such as Pura Sakenan in Denpasar. The Balinese Hindu devotees believe that Dhang Hyang Nirartha, a wandering priest from East Java, have chosen Uluwatu as his last earthly abode. Legend, however, says that Nirartha was the main one who founded the Uluwatu Temple actually.
