Silayukti Temple in East Bali

Ancient Sea Temple in Padangbai 

Silayukti Temple is one of the most important historical sites at Padangbai, East Bali. This 11th century Hindu temple sits on a headland just northeast of the main bay of Padangbai that is home to the landmark ferry port. A path leads you up a grassy hill where you will also find two other temples: Pura Tanjungsari and Pura Telaga Mas. A visit here can be a good break from snorkelling and diving 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 two of Padangbai’s notable white sand beaches, namely 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, when pilgrims from all over the island attend for prayers, usually over a course of four days.
