The Visit to Bali by a tourist is not complete without a visit to Pura Kehen. This age old temple which is the second largest temple in Balidates back to the 11th century and was founded by Sri Brahama Kemuti Ketu and is considered the most holy in the area. This garden temple is on the outskirts of Banbli town in East Bali. A visit to this temple is mind boggling. The temple rises steeply as a glandular structure from the edge of the road from the foot of a hill.

The temple has a split gateway called candi bentar at the top of the steps. Though there are two entrances only one is in use by the visitors. Though there are many other garden temples in Bali few like Pura Luhur, Pura Besakih, Pura Taman Ayun and Ulu Watu are regularly visited. The best is Pura Kehen.
