Pura Beji

Pura Beji was built in the 15th century and is one of the most ancient temples on the island. As a little known attraction, visitors are nevertheless permitted entry to the grounds.

This temple does not swell with visitors and is the perfect temple to check out if you would like to avoid the big tourist crowds.

Pura Beji Rice Goddess Temple Entry Fee & Dress Code, Bali

The temple is situated in the northern region of Bali, in an area known as Sangsit that is about 8kms from Singaraja. If you are not careful, it is easy to miss the entry point to the temple. As you drive from Singaraja, be sure to spot the tiny sign on the left section of the road. You will then take up the rough road that leads to the sea.

Pura Beji is a subak temple, and this means that the temple was dedicated to Dewi Sri, a goddess respected in the Balinese religion. It is believed that this goddess offers protection for the rice fields and the plantations; little wonder the area is considered to be very fertile.

Pura Beji is best known for its perfect carvings, famed for the northern rococo style of symmetry. This is easy to spot and is appreciated by art lovers with an eye for architecture.

On arrival, visitors are required to donate at the temple as part of entrance fees (usually between 10,000-20,000 IDR). Visitors must ensure that they wear a sarong to cover knees and ankles. Also make sure that shoulders and midriffs are covered. If you do not have your own, you can hire one from the locals at the entrance.
