The Pura Agung Jagatnatha, a state temple, is dedicated to the supreme God Sang Hyang Widi Wasa who is the Jagatnatha or Creator of the Universe. The 5-tiered 15 m high white coral Padmasana or lotus throne has a gold relief of the deity Achintya and lies on top of the cosmic turtle and two naga (serpents) that symbolize the foundation of the world. It is kept empty for the God to sit on during his earth visits. Other shrines are those of Queen Niang, Dalem Karang and Queen Made. The complex has 3 courtyards, with the middle one surrounded by a moat across which the stone bridge has carvings of lotus flowers and frogs. Its walls depict scenes from Hindu epics such as the Ramayana and Mahabharata. The outer courtyard has a bell tower and a colossal statue of a demon. The best time to visit the temple is during a full moon or new moon, when festivals are celebrated here. Cultural performances may also be organized.
