This is an excellent site. The entrance gate and terraces, the courtyard with its spectacular huge banyan tree, the jeroan with its 11-roofed meru. We were impressed with the sensations we experienced, being here in this tranquil place of worship. And no pesky vendors to bother us!

The function of Kehen Temple as sanctum in execution of oath ceremony is supported by the existence of a circumlocutory canister by 4 dragon tails which is called canister Sarpantaka. Nowadays, the canister is placed in a building in form of Gedong

Kehen was the state temple of Bangli Kingdom with very great importance in old time. Here Bangli kings and ministers were sworn. Look at the handsome entrance gate decorated with dozens of heroes from Ramayana and Mahabarata epics, and the excellent carvings on the entrance gate.

Visited Pura Kehen on October 10th, 2016. There was a religious ceremony being held there at the time so I got a chance to see how very interesting the ceremony was (even only for a short moment). The temple itself wasn't really big but on the other hand it was quiet and serene and really represented itself as a place... More

This is one of the most beautiful temples of Bali with magnificent entrance gates decorated by lovely carvings flanked by heroes statues. In the second courtyard don't miss the huge banyan tree with a wooden bell building in her branches.
