Silayukti Temple in East Bali

Ancient Sea Temple in Padangbai 

Silayukti Temple is one of the most important historical sites at Padangbai in East Bali. This 11th-century Hindu temple sits on a headland just northeast of the main bay of Padangbai. Padangbai itself is better known as being home to the landmark ferry port for crossing over to the neighbouring island of Lombok.
A path leads you up a grassy hill where you will also find 2 other temples: Pura Tanjungsari and Pura Telaga Mas.

A visit here can be a good break from snorkelling and diving adventures around the area, granting a great sightseeing opportunity with several temples in one scenic spot.

Scenic seascapes and spirituality at Silayukti Temple

The outcrop on which Silayukti Temple is situated provides wonderful and wide seascapes over 2 of Padangbai’s notable white sand beaches – the main sandy length of Padangbai and Blue Lagoon Beach to the north. It’s also a great place to catch both sunsets and sunrises.

If you’re up for a more spiritual experience at the temple, you may be lucky enough to be granted a small ‘purification ritual’ involving holy water and blessings by the local priest.

Pura Silayukti Temple’s vibrant temple anniversary is held every ‘Kliwon Pahang’ Wednesday, marked on the Balinese 210-day pawukon calendar. This is when pilgrims from all over the island attend for prayers, usually over a course of 4 days.
