Gunung Kawi Royal Monuments (The Land Of Shrines)

In the Gianyar Regency just east of the Tampak Siring Village lies yet another amazing piece of Balinese culture – the nine Gunung Kawi Royal Monuments. Here you will find ellegant bone carvings as well as Buddhist shaped shrines carved into natural rock wall into the hill. The main reason why this is a great place to visit is the temple that sits at the center of the nine Gunung Kawi Royal Monuments. And while some people refer to them as tombs, they are actually memorial shrines that were build during the 11th century.
