The villages of Kintamani and Penolakan give a view of the active Mount Batur and Lake. The caldera of Batur is impressive: 7 miles in diameter and 60 feet deep. From Penolakan, a road leads to Kedisan on the shores of the lake where boats can be hired to cross over to Trunyan. This ancient village is in habited by people who call themselves “Bali Aga” or original Balinese who have maintained many of their old ways. The Puser Jagad temple has an unusual architecture and stands under a massive Banyan tree.

A large Banyan tree with a tower shades the lowest and second courtyard, while in the third courtyard several shrines for the gods and ancestors are found.
