The undersea temple garden is near Bukit Ser (?), consisting of a sacred temple revered by the locals.

“The area is perfect for spiritual activities,” Brown noted.

Trained divers carried the temple’s full-size split gate part by part to the bottom of the sea. The divers also transported various sandstone statues, including an imposing Ganesha.

Upon completion of the project, the locals succeeded in transforming a 2,500 square meters of sandy seabed at 28 meters deep into a Balinese Hindu temple compound with a majestic split gate and 25 beautifully carved statues.

Soon after, numerous marine plants and aquatic creatures populated the compound, providing the temple with a unique and mesmerizing beauty. -

An engineering feat, with over ten large stone statues resting on stone plinths and, a 4 metre high Balinese candi bentar gateway. It is found at a depth of 28 meters and incorporates a cleaning station with schooling baitfish.

The "garden" is covered in gorgonian fans and must be seen to be believed. A second stage of this Temple Garden has now been started on the reef flats above at a depth of around 15metres. On the last part of this dive along the reeftop, there are normally lots of weird and wonderful "critters" to be found along with a small bommie (Coral head) inhabited by thousands of small fish, sponges, crinoids etc, etc
