"The temple Pura Jagatnatha, built in honor of the supreme god Sanghyang Widi, is an important place of prayer for the inhabitants. The temple from 1953, built of coral and surrounded by dragons, is also a must see for tourists because of the beautiful paintings on the walls. Here you will find the events from old Balinese stories."
The Pura Maospahit-tempel is one of the most important temple complexes in Denpasar. The temple consists of two parts that are separated by a wall and was built from dark red bricks. Construction began in the 13th century and was fully completed in the 15th century. The Pura Maospahit is known for its bare brick architecture, reminiscent of the architecture of the 13th-century Majapahit kingdom, hence the name. However, much of what you observe today in this temple has been reconstructed due to a serious earthquake. This is one of the oldest temples in Denpasar Indonesia that took almost two centuries to build.
The temple is approximately 950 meters west of the famous statue of Catur Muka. In the early years, the temple endured a number of disasters, including an enormous earthquake. Much of this temple was lost in the early 20th century due to another earthquake that struck Denpasar. Fortunately not everything was lost. For example, the images of the guards at the entrance are still in perfect condition.
You won't find many tourists here so enjoy the peace with Kubera, the god of wealth, Yama, the god of death and Indra, the king of kings and many more other gods. Of course you will also find here the well-known god of fertility, Shiva.
Keep in mind that there are two entrances. The main entrance is only open at festivals while the normal entrance is slightly more open, but certainly not daily. You enter the temple through the candi bentar, a gate that has five pillars with different figures.Keep in mind that there are two entrances.

The Jaganatha-temple is a beautiful Hindu temple. It is the largest Hindu temple in Bali and is visited by many tourists. It stands on Puputan Badung Square, which makes the temple easy to reach.
This is another temple that depicts the rich history of the kingdom of Bali. It is a characteristic that is also known locally as Jagatnatha Puputan Square. There have been quite a few renovations over the years and from now on there is a large Padmasana building in beautiful white. Here is the seat of Sang Hyang Widhi with a throne or a seat for the god in lotus form.
If no specific major ceremony is held in this temple, Bale Paselang is sometimes used as a place for Mesanti (reading and singing from the holy books, which are called Geguritan or Kekawin). If there are many Hindu people to pray, this Bale Paselang is used as a resting place.
When you visit it, you must see the interior of the temple, which still has beautiful old engravings and motifs that depict stories from the Ramayana. The walls of the temple are carved and made of white coral.
The Sakenan tempel
The Dalem Sakenan-temple is a beautiful temple and is located on the island of Serangan, about 10 km from the center of Denpasar. Serangan is connected to the mainland by a bridge and is also known as a turtle island. What makes it so beautiful is the view of the seacoast line, Nusa Dua beach and the hills on the south side of the temple. The name Sakenan comes from the word Sakya, which means "to unite the mind." These temple ceremonies have been of great cultural importance for the people of Bali. One of the main attractions of the temple is the colorful religious festival (Umanis Kuningan), a three-day celebration that takes place every six months and is popular with locals and tourists alike. One of the festival's highlights is the Mapag Sakenan ceremony, a religious procession performed by local Hindus.
The Sakenan Temple was founded by Mpu Kuturan or known as Mpu Rajakretha, a Hindu priest from the kingdom of Mataram. The Sakenan Temple consists of two parts, namely a large temple building and a small temple. The temple is surrounded by a sliding wall.
Even before there was a good road connecting the island with the mainland, pilgrims often came to this temple on foot or by boat to sacrifice their prayers. Another fascinating thing about this temple is that both complexes were built with coral stones instead of bricks.
