This become the biggest temple in Bali. Almost all Balinese praying to the temple, since in the course of history, the kingdom of Klungkung is considered the highest kingdom in Bali. Each kingdom in Bali developed 3 basic temples, first dedicated and located on the sea, second located on the city or near the palace, and the third is on the mountain. So basically each kingdom managed 3 temples, dedicated to the sea, city, and mountain. In the past Besakih temple was probably mountain temple, as in the center of Klungkung city there is already a big temple as state temple located in the city, just on the side of famous Kerta Gosha ancient court house of justice. Tenganan village is around 20 kms away from Klungkung city located in the lowland protected two mountain walls as the protection of the assaulters in the past.
