The uniqueness of the temple in Nusa Penida Island, Bali, makes you want to come and travel to Nusa Penida as a New Paradise Island of Bali..
There is a unique temple in Nusa Penida that resembles a car. The temple is called Paluang Temple (Pura Paluang) or Car Temple (Pura Mobil). There are 13 shrines (pelinggih), and two of the shrines are in the form of miniature Volkswagen Beetles and Jimmy Cars. These make Paluang Temple a very special temple in Bali. And because it's different from the existing temple in Bali.
The History of Paluang Temple Nusa Penida. No one knows for sure when Pura Paluang was founded. However, according to the information, Pengemong Pura (Temple Guards) and Jero Mangku (Temple Priest) explain that a long time ago, there was a citizen who opened the land to be a garden in this place and found a large stone that moved. The next day, the boulder moved back to where it came from. This is repeated again until the residents get a clue to establish Shrines Place, which is on a steep cliff. And therefore called PURA PALUANG (edge of the cliff).

This temple is located in the southern part of Nusa Penida, near the beach. The temple with shrines and cars is the only one in the world.
To go to Paluang Temple from the port of the fast boat Toya Pakeh Nusa Penida, it takes about an hour to drive by local car. The road taken was winding because Nusa Penida is hilly land. On several roads leading to the temple, a damaged and perforated road is found. And the terrain is steep. Bushes and trees can be seen along the way.
The location of this sacred temple is in the western part of Nusa Penida Island. Above the cliff beneath is a deep chasm. Similar to Pura Luhur Uluwatu Temple in Bali. Located in Banjar KarangDawa, BungaMekar Village, Nusa Penida Sub-district, Klungkung Regency, Bali.
