In Lempuyang Temple, you can find “The Gates of Heaven”, which is believed to be the doors that are closest to the sky. It’s located in the temple named Pura Lempuyang, in the east of Bali. Despite its long distance from the center of Bali, it has become a popular check-in place where you can take photo with “water reflection” with a little trick!
Taman Ujung Water Palace
The Water Palace is located at a village by the sea, near the Lempuyang Temple. Instead of a typical golden majestic palace, it’s more like a gorgeous and romantic garden where the fairy lives!
