Batuan Temple is a secret Hindu temple located in Batuan Village and appointed as one of Bali Places of Interest. The name “Batuan” or “Baturan” mentioned here prompts villagers to joke about being “tough as stone” or “eating rocks” as batu means “stone” in Balinese. Furthermore, it likely refers to an ancient megalithic tradition in which standing stones served as meeting places and ceremonial sites for the worship of ancestral spirits.
