Puru Sada Temple


Near the market in the village of Kapal you will find the beautifully decorated temple of Pura Sada. Originally a sanctuary of the Mengwi royalty, it dates to the Majapahit era. It has a 16 meter high tower, but, it is the 64 stone shrines resembling ancestral shrines that are the feature of this temple. They are believed to commemorate fallen warriors.

The temple shrines are located in the main courtyard. Among the shrines there is 20-meter-high 11-roofed red-brick shrine, just under which there is room for a statue. Legend has it that a long time ago in Gowan, Mainland China, there was a kingdom called Pura Sada.
