BANGLI – We will visit PURA KEHEN (Kehen Temple), the state temple of Bangli kingdom. It is situated on a hill and there are terraces or steps leading to the temple entrance. The greatest gateway with its huge sacred banyan tree has colorful Chinese porcelain plates set into the walls as decorations. The inscription found in the temple suggests that the temple was built in the thirteenth century (around 1204 AD). The temple is dedicated to the lord of fire, Brahma.

All of them represent manifestation of the supreme God.

KLUNGKUNG – It was the capital of BALI (1740 – 1908). You can see the court of justice (Kerta Gosa), which consists of the floating pavilion (Bale Kambang) and Bale akerta Gosa. The floating pavilion, so named as it is surrounded by a pool, is full of murals decorated in classical Balinese Kamasan painting style. (Kamasan is the name of a village in Klungkung). The Kerta Gosa was once the most important bale of the royal palace at Klungkung. It was here that the raja and his judges would sit and discuss matters of law and human affairs. It was also here that mepandes ceremonies for the royal families growing princes and princesses were held.
We can also see Klungkung Museum just opposite the museum. There is a monument of battle which commemorates puputan (campaigns/battles till death).
