Beautiful temple being enlarged at the moment, nestling between two rivers. Lovely architecture made alive when there is a ceremony. Visit during a ceremonny but still worth it even if there isn't.

Down the hill from central Ubud is located the really interesting Gunung lebah Temple. When we visited, in early June 2014, the entire temple was under drastic reconstruction in preparation for a large ceremony to be held in September (?). Friends who live in Bali told us that the process of totally rebuilding a temple complex is part of the historical tradition of Bali. The thinking is that you'll see the temple rebuilt 3 times during your lifetime - once when you're a child, then once when you're in your 20's or 30's and can participate in the work, and then lastly when you're older and can be a mentor to the younger builders.

There were absolutely no other tourists on the morning of our visit, and we spent quite a long time watching every aspect of the rebuilding and refurbishing of this lovely site. It is not easy to find the temple (ask a local), but it is definitely worth seeking out.

This is an old subak temple - regulating the rice planting cycle - in a gorgeous setting. Best seen during a temple ceremony but still beautiful evn if it is deserted. Just go to Campuhan bridge opposite Murni's Warung and go down the steps.

This temple is in the jungle gorge at Campuan, a very mysterious and pretty setting. It was under repair the last time I was there, but I have attended ceremonies there in the past, and the setting makes it very special.
