Pura Luhur Uluwatu Is one of Bali's nine important 'Kayangan Jagat' temples (believed to protect the island through their intricate positioning).
The location is dramatic, rocky precipices drop almost 100 metres to the Indian ocean, and the temple balances on a narrow promontory's edge that offers one of the best sunset views on the island above dramatic crashing white surf.
The Temple was built in the 11th century to worship the holy priest, Empu Kuturan, who came to Bali bringing religious law and the formation of 'Desa Adat' - traditional villages.
The temple is also in honour to the doctrine of the holy man, Dang Hyang Nirartha, who came to Bali at the later date of 1550.
He spent his last day in the world at the temple to reach 'moksa or ngeluhur' (enlightenment) which then lent its name to the temple's present name of Luhur Uluwatu.
