Next, we headed to explore places around Candidasa and took a cab to explore Lempuyang temple and view of Mt. Agung. Mt. Agung is an active volcano in that region and we were informed by our cab driver, that the volcano erupted few months before we traveled and that the airport was closed for few days and still we were not allowed to visit within a 4km-radius of this volcano.
As is the case with all the Bali temples, you are not allowed to visit inside the temple. However, you still need to wear a sarong and a scarf to go inside. The temple is beautiful with 5 dragons - you can't climb the stairs from the middle path, as we were instructed by one of the staff members before we began to go inside the temple. The thing that we found extremely stupid was that people were standing in a long queue just to get a picture clicked with Mt. Agung in between the temple doors. The views of Mt. Agung are GREAT on a clear day. Though it was very hot when we went there, it is a good place to view Mt. Agung. However, you can surely miss the queue since it is just a picture that you'll get after such a long wait. You can get similar picture with few people around, doesn't matter.
