Commanding a high headland at the northern end of Padangbai, Pura Silayukti (free admission; daily 24 hr.) is one of Bali's oldest temples. It was founded by the great Javanese Hindu sage Empu Kuturan who arrived here in the 11th century. He subsequently built a retreat on the hillside overlooking the bay, which was later to become Pura Silayukti. As one of the oldest temples, there is very little of architectural interest left to look at. The caves beneath are more interesting.
