The name of the temple translates to ‘the haunted clique’. Forklore has it that people would go to the forest and become sickly, something was attributed to the presence of dark spirits. The solution to this was believed to be in the construction of a temple to ward off the dark spirits. The area is not considered dark anymore, thankfully, so tourists can tour the temple in peace. Today, the temple is a peaceful location teeming with lush gardens and scenic views.

The temple is still an active place of worship, so religious festivals are a common occurrence at Petitenget Temple. A number of these events are held on the adjacent beach, so beach-goers can learn about Balinese culture as they relax on the beach. You should be able to catch a glimpse of the locals giving offerings and burning incense to the gods.

The architecture of the temple constitutes red bricks and sandstone which give it a rustic feel, yet blends with the natural surroundings. The staircase design is inspired by a dragon and it leads up to multiple Balinese shrines. As one of Bali’s prominent sea temples, Petitenget Temple is a must-visit for anyone who would like to learn more about Balinese culture.

The entrance fee is around 5,000 IDR and visitors must ensure that they wear a sarong to cover knees and ankles. Also make sure that shoulders and midriffs are covered.
