The name Pura Taman Pecampuhan means the Temple Garden at the meeting of the Two Rivers. It is situated in Abuan in Bangli. At the edge of the village is a long descent down the side of a valley, until you come to the higher temple is, which is where most of these photos were taken.

The lower part of the temple is where the Tirta (Sacred Waters) are and is where Melukat (purification washing) take place, but I was unable to descend any further. The top section has a Nāga head in front of a cave, and the body descends down to the lower section. This is pone of the less visited temples, unlike the rather touristy Pura Tirta Empul, which is in the same area.
