Pura Besakih

Most likely dating from pre-historic times, Pura Besaki "is the most important, the largest and holiest temple of Hindu religion in Bali, and one of a series of Balinese temples.

Perched nearly 1000 meters up the side of Gunung Agung, it is an extensive complex of 23 separate but related temples with the largest and most important being Pura Penataran Agung. The temple is built on six levels, terraced up the slope. The entrance is marked by a candi bentar (split gateway), and beyond it the Kori Agung is the gateway to the second courtyard."
