The Puru Rambut Sivi Temple is located in Indonesia, Bali, on distance just over 16 km from Medevi. The temple sits on top of a high cliff hanging over the sandy beach, which makes it look like the famous Puru Luhur Uluwatu. In addition to the similar location, these two buildings have other common traits: for example, Rambut Sivi, like Luhur Uluwatu, was founded by a sage and by the Hindu priest Nirarthu. Interestingly, Rambut Sivi translates as “worship hair": the temple keeps a real lock from the head of the ubiquitous old man, which is the subject of worship. A carved chest with a lock of hair and some other artifacts were buried deep in the ground right under the main pagoda.
Tourists usually come to Puru Rambut Sivi to enjoy the mesmerizing view from the top of the cliff. The black sand beach is also interesting - a phenomenon in Indonesia not too much frequent. Going down the stairs from the top on which the temple is located, you can to find on the right hand a source beating from a rock, guarded by a figure Nirarthi. It is believed that the waters of the spring are curative and bring tranquility and peace to the soul of anyone who drank from it. A little further from the source is a whole a complex of caves, which, however, can only be viewed from the outside. Balinese believe that any cave can be a portal to the spirit world, so the entrance to they are allowed only to priests and people who decide to take holy orders.
