TABANAN REGENCY - THE CITY OF "LUMBUNG PADI / RICE FIELD"
 
Lake Bratan offers water-skiing and boating, but is better known for the Pura Ulun Danu temple. Built on the shores of the lake at Candikuning, it has eleven tiers of that ched roof meru as well as an adjoining Buddhist stupa.

At the foot of Mount Batukaru, to the southwest of Bedugul, is another Balinese marvel called the Pura Luhur Temple. The temple has a 2-meter meru to Maha Dewa, Mount Batukaru's guardian spirit. Grandly located among the lofty trees of the rain forest, this is a unique encounter between man and nature. The road to the temple branches out at Pacung, where a restaurant overlooks the rice field terraces.

Also perched on the slopes of Mount Batukaru is the small village of Jatiluwih. Its name means "truly marvelous" and the view truly is as it encompasses a huge region of southern Bali. A hot spring, Yeh Panes, is located on the road northwards from Tabanan.

The small village of Blayu is located midway down the plain on a parallel side road running from Paeung Id Bedugul. Here, traditional songket sarongs are woven. Used in ceremonies during festivals, they are woven with intricate gold thread.

Marga, just north of Blayu, has an unusual memorial dedicated to Brigadier General I Gst. Ngurah Rai, who in 1946 led his army in a futile rebellion against the Dutch forces. The memorial consists of a tower containing a replica of his famous letter stating his refusal to surrender.

To the south of Blayu and Marga is the Bukit Sari Monkey Forest. The monkeys are tame but hold on to your camera or sunglasses just in case one of them tries to snatch it from you.
