KLUNGKUNG (SEMARAPURA) REGENCY - THE CITY OF "SEROMBOTAN"
 
It is surrounded by a moat and is decorated with beautiful paintings on its ceilings, which depict tortures in hell and happiness in heaven. The Bale Kambang (or Floating Pavilion) stands behind the Kertha Gosa, its painted ceilings depict the legend of the hero Sulasoma and his sacrifices, and of Pan and Men Brayut, known as the couple who had too many children. Another beautiful royal temple in Klungkung is the Pura Taman Sri featuring a moat-surrounded pagoda in a lush garden.

A few kilometers outside Semarapura is Kamasan village, home of Balinese traditional paintings. The themes of the paintings derived from Balinese variations of the ancient Hindu epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. This style has also been adapted for large versions of the zodiac and lunar calendars. Kamasan paintings take their essential characteristics from the wayang tradition. To see a good collection of Kamasan classical paintings, visit Nyoman Gunarsa Museum at the crossroads to Tihingan, just before Semarapura.

A few kilometers east is Goa Lawah, the Bat Cave. This cave is crowded with thousands of bats which are unseen but certainly not unheard during the day. The cave is part of a temple that is said to lead all the way in the underground tunnel to Besakih but it is unlikely that interested in investigating!

Beyond Semarapura is the coastal village of Kusamba, one of the embarkation points to the islands of Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan. The journey by boat from Kusamba or 5anur to these islands takes a couple of hours.
