Located across the hillside in Candidasa, Pura Candidasa is a gorgeous Hindu temple dedicated to Hariti, goddess of fertility and rain. Also called the Temple of Ten Children, legend has it that Hariti was a barren woman desperate to conceive, who ultimately gave birth to ten children. The carvings inside depict the tale and offer a glimpse into another fascinating aspect of Balinese mythology.
Consisting of two temples, one dedicated to Hariti, and one dedicated to Shiva, the twin temples occupy a significant part of Balinese folklore. Sandwiched between the ocean and a lagoon, Pura Candidasa is one of the most picturesque temples in Bali.
