Pura Gunung Lebah, Bali Overview

Nestled over the Campuhan valley where the Sungai Cerik meets, Pura Gunung Lebah is one of Ubud's most significant temples. An 8th-century edifice dedicated to the goddess of Batur, the temple features a traditional Balinese Padmanasa or empty stone throne atop its intricately carved tower-like structure. Situated at the confluence of the Sungai Cerik's two tributaries, overlooking the Campugan valley, and surrounded by rich verdant forestry, Pura Gunung Lebah is as serene as they come and is a long way away from the fast-paced life most of us are used to.

Pura Gunung Lebah Temple was built in the 8th century by an Indian priest, Rsi Markandeya. The temple is often used as a place for meditation, owing to the beautiful atmosphere and lush surroundings. Dewa Danuring Mount Batur is the primary deity in the Gunung Lebah Temple. This temple also plays host to a devotional ceremony that is held every hundred years.
