Gunung Kawi Temple
Gunung Kawi Temple or Tuning Kawi Temple is a protected ancient site in Bali
Gunung Kawi Temple is an 11th-century temple and funerary complex in Tampak Siring north east of Ubud in Bali. This temple consists of 10 candi (shrines) – memorials cut out of the rock face in imitation of actual statues. They stand in awe-inspiring 8m-high sheltered niches cut into the sheer cliff face.
These funeral monuments are thought to be dedicated to King Anak Wungsu of the Udayana dynasty and his queens. On the east side there are five temples that are dedicated to King Udayana, his queen Mahendradatta, and also for their sons Airlanga, Anak Wungsu, and Marakata. The temples on the west side are made for the king’s minor queens or concubines.
