The temple is built on steep cliff and strikes mighty pose against the sky, especially at night.The name, ‘Luhur’ meaning something of divine origin and Uluwatu being broken down into ‘Ulu’ which means lands end and ‘watu’ meaning rock, describes this fantastic piece of architecture perfectly.
On most evenings the Kecak dance is performed and is an old style of Balinese dance involving a group of a hundred and fifty, normally male, performers dancing and chanting ‘cakcakcak’ over and over.
If so inclined whilst staying in Bali you might like to try your hand at water sports. Mountain biking, horse riding and even golf are some of the activities enjoyed by tourists ever day.
