Rambut Siwi Temple Puri Dajuma, Beach Eco-Resort & Spa, West Bali

Rambut Siwi Temple

The  Rambut Siwi Temple is one of the biggest Hindu Temples in Bali, located a few kilometers from Dajuma.
When the sixteenth-century Hindu priest Nirartha sailed across from Java, he paused at this spot and claimed it as holy.  On leaving, he donated a lock of his hair to the villagers, who erected a temple and named it Pura Rambut Siwi, “the temple for worshipping the hair”.  The gift is kept in a sandlewood box inside the central 3-tiered meru.

Perched among frangipani on a promontory overlooking the sea, Pura Rambut Siwi occupies a truly beautiful site, set in the cliff bank with wide Indian Ocean just in front. Inside are shrines to Dewi Saraswati, the Goddes of learning and Dewi Sri, the rice Goddes.
A beautiful and authentic place to discover, especially at sunset!
