Uluwatu Temple

We can´t imagine a better way to welcome April than travelling around the Asian continent. Today from the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa we are taking you to Indonesia to visit the amazing Uluwatu Temple.

Luhur Uluwatu Temple is one of the most beautiful and famous temples in Bali. Located on top of a steep cliff 75 metres above sea level, it is one of the main cult places in the island.

The temple, built with black rock, dates back to the tenth century and it is one of the oldest temples in Bali. It is one of the nine directional temples of Bali, located in strategic places of the island to protect it from evil spirits.

Uluwatu Temple has a huge religious importance for being the traveller Dhang Hyang Dwijendra´s last residence, who developed the current dharma branch of knowledge in the fifteenth century.

Any time of the day is good for visiting the temple, but the light during twilight makes it even more special. It is considered one of the best spots to contemplate the incredible sunsets, overlooking the Indian Ocean. Besides, in the evening natives perform the Kecak Dance every day.
