Located in Tampaksiring, Gunung Kawi is one of the most ancient monuments in Bali. It consists of 10 rock-cut shrines. An isolated memorial stands at a distance of a kilometer down the valley. You can reach this place by trekking through rice paddies on the western banks of the river. Each shrine here is said to be a memorial to a Balinese royalty member of the 11th century. A theory says that the whole complex is dedicated to Anak Wungsu, his wives, a royal minister and concubines.
