Pemuteran, Pura Pulaki

Pemuteran, Pura Pulaki


Heading east along the main road out of Pemuteran is the first of the three temples, Pura Pulaki. Pura Pulaki is a particularly important temple in the Balinese belief system and you will see Balinese people from around the island praying here throughout the day. Additionally, almost every vehicle passing the temple will toot their horn in acknowledgment.

Three different groups of macaque monkeys reside in and around the temple and it’s important to ensure all shiny objects are removed from your person. There are so many monkeys in Pura Pulaki that it is said they are temple guardians who escorted the founder of the temple in the 1600s from Java. The temple itself is not visually appealing and should have you finished in about 10 minutes. Entry is by donation and a sarong and sash are required. 5,000 rupiah per person is sufficient.
