Perched on a 70-meter high cliff, Uluwatu Temple is backdropped by a stunning seascape of crashing waves. It’s one of Bali’s nine directional temples, which is believed to protect the island from evil spirits. Draw from its powerful energy as you roam around the perimeter. Be alert though; there are plenty of monkeys here, and they are known to steal small objects. Drop by the nearby amphitheater in the evening to witness a Kecak performance (a cultural dance depicting the Ramayana epic).

Dedicated to Lord Vishnu, the Jagannath temple is an important pilgrimage site for the Hindus, many of whom converge at the town for the annual chariot festival held in the months of June-July. Many miracles are associated with the temple. It is said that the flag on top of the temple blows against the wind; no birds or planes fly atop the temple and before the traffic sounds spoiled everything it was said that you couldn't hear the ocean once inside the temple. But the amazing thing about the temple is the food that is cooked for the devotees. Around 56 varieties of food are cooked everyday as per the traditions laid down centuries back. No foreign product is used and the food is cooked in pots placed one atop the other in one go and the food placed on the top gets cooked first! Sadly, non Hindus are not allowed inside the temple but they can view the temple and get a glimpse of the lord from the outside.

You may know this very Instagenic temple for the flood of trick photos taken in it's Gates to Heaven, simulating a mirror-like pool, with the backdrop of an almost Fuji-looking mountain. Expect a 2h wait for the photo ops. Off on the east, sitting above the Belibis Hill, it's one of Bali's 9 key directional temples. It's known as the Temple of Thousands Steps because you will have to climb 1700 steps to reach the summit of the temple. Admission Fee: Free
