Rambut Siwi temple, located about 2 hours away from Denpasar in Negara regency, is a shrine built to preserve the 16th-century Hindu Priest Danghyan Niratha's lock of hair. It is believed to be a protective token for the area. Set on a cliff overlooking the black-sand beach, the temple is surrounded by untouched natural beauty home to many endemic species.
Legend states that Niratha was at the temple when the walls of the temple crumbled around him and temple disintegrated. The poor guard in charge of the temple compound asked the priest how to fix this debacle. The priest gave the guard a lock of his hair and asked him to plant it. To the guard's surprise, after planting his hair, the temple walls began to grow out of the ground again. The temple overlooks beautiful rice-terraces and is sandwiched between gorgeous mountains and the Indian Ocean on the other side.
