This river is the same river flowing to the Tirta Empul Temple. There’s also another of this inside. The platform on the right-most side is where the coffee store is. You can have your rest in here. I think this is the half point of the entrance and the main temple.

After few minutes of walking, you will finally reach this second gate, this is now the main entry to the temple.



Gunung Kawi is known to be the most unique archaeological sites in Bali due to its impressive carved rock structures. Itย comprises of different temple funeral shrines with each respective kings/gods.


This one behind us is one of the funeral shrines in Gunung Kawi. You will find more when you explore the temple further.




Our guide said that this shrine below is for those who pray for business (sadly I forgot the term).


And this one below is another with no particular denotation.


There’s a legend about this temple that it was built for king Udayana and his 4 sons while other historians say it is his 4 wives. You can learn deeper when you visit the temple and actually interact with the people inside.
