Uluwatu Temple or Pura Luhur Uluwatu is a Balinese sea temple in Bali. Built in the 11th century, it is one of nine directional temples meant to protect Bali from evil spirits. It is located in Pecatu village, Kuta South District of Badung. Just like any other temples in Bali, visitors must wear a Balinese sash, which is provided at the entrance and must be worn before entering the temple area. The area are also home for monkeys, which often try to snatch people’s belongings such as camera, glasses, purse, or a hat. Therefore, you should pay extra attention to your belongings.
