Pura Agung Jagatnatha

Pura Agung Jagatnatha is a beautiful Balinese temple located in the heart of Denpasar. It is the largest temple in the island’s capital and is an iconic landmark.

The temple was built in the eastern region of the lush garden at Puputan Badung Square. As a public temple, it is not uncommon to meet visitors and locals from all walks of life gathering at the temple to worship.

Pura Agung Jagatnatha Temple Denpasar Bali Entrance Fees & Dress Code

Unlike other temples which are named after their location, Pura Agung Jagatnatha is not named after Denpasar. Another trait that makes it unique is the fact that it does not have the staff to maintain it. On the contrary, the temple is managed by a team of regular volunteers who also worship at the temple.

The temple is packed with various religious ornaments and artefacts. The high temple building located at the centre of the complex is an intricate structure surrounded by a lush garden and is perhaps the most prominent part of the temple.

Right from the entry point of Pura Agung Jagatnatha, visitors are welcomed by designs that speak to Balinese culture, and the significant role they play for Balinese-Hinduists. The temple records the highest human traffic during religious festivals, so if your trip coincides with the holiday season, you may want to make an effort to arrive at the temple early.

On arrival, visitors are required to donate at the temple as part of entrance fees (usually between 20,000-30,000 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.
