Sanur’s first indigenous temple worshipping the sea
Sanur’s indigenous temple
This temple is unlike any other one on Bali! Built pre-hindu times by indigenous villagers and still in its original shape. Built to protect the village from the sea, the shrines are not from stone or brick but made out of coral from the Sanur Reef.
Perhaps not as refined as other temples on the island of Gods, but definitely worth a wander. Pyramids made of black coral and seashells, with turtles, dragons and other sea creatures and brightly coloured mythical hindu figures dotted around.
Pura Segara I and II
Yes, you’ve heard the name Pura Segara before. Sanur has two water temples, and you’ve just passed the other one at Matahari beach.
