Why Beji Temple is special ?

Pura Beji is a Subak temple, dedicated to the spirit that looks after the irrigation and rice fields. It’s about half a km from main road toward the coast. It was built in the 15th century on the site of a well. The temple is famous for its Barong architecture and virtuoso relief carvings. With its courtyards of clipped grass and old frangipani trees, it is a tranquil and refreshing place. The grand gate separating the forecourt from the inner courtyard spreads almost the entire length of the wall and is wonderfully carved on both the inner and outer sides. The principal shrines have staircases and turrets, and one gets feeling here that worship has something to do with the sheer pleasure of building things.

We only went to this temple because it was not too far from the place we stayed in Air Sanih. But we were so pleasantly surprised at seeing one of the most ornate temples in Buleleng. The walls of the temple are full of beautiful, intricate carving, some of the fine details are still very well preserved. Tranquil and manageable on your own, this is a temple you can spend time appreciating without being harried and pressured by guides offering their services. We came in the afternoon, and we had the temple all for ourselves. After paying the entrance fee--10,000 rupiahs--we were left completely alone.
