Pejeng, where the villa is situated, is very famous for its temples and was once an important seat of power. With over 40 old temples in the region between the rivers Pakrisan and Petanu, the Pejeng area contains Bali's richest collection of antiquities. Most antiquities are in the form of worn statues kept in important temples in the area.
Some of Bali's archaeological treasures, such as Goa Gajah, Gunung Kawi and Pura Pusering Jagat, which date as far back as the 9th century, are also situated in this area.
There are many archaeological odds and ends in this 'Valley of the Kings' in the middle of Pejeng - known as Bali's rice belt. It's a nice walk to the 14th-century cut-rock 'candi' at Kalebutan near Tatiapi, one km west of Pejeng Timor.
There are many beautiful walks in Pejeng through the rice paddies. If you prefer, our driver can drop you off and collect you, where and when you please.
White Water Rafting
Various operators offer rafting on the Ayung river near Ubud. The Ayung River caters to class 2 and 3 rapids which are suitable for anyone from 5-75yrs.
Cycling is a beautiful way to see the Balinese landscape and there are tour operators who offer cycling tours for different expertise and fitness levels, and also tours that include children. In fact many of the cycling tours pass very near the villa and you can be fetched from the villa to start your cycle. From Pejeng to central Ubud the cycling is mainly downhill.
Goa Gajah, a significant Hindu archaeological site, is a 10 minute drive from Villa Sagitta. It consists of a mysterious cave, relics, and ancient bathing pools set amid green rice paddies and a garden. Goa Gajah is colloquially known as the Elephant Cave because of its close proximity to the Elephant River.
The entrance to Goa Gajah looks like a demonic mouth, suggesting that people are entering an underworld as they venture inside through the darkness. Some claim that the entrance represents the Hindu earth god Bhoma, while others say the mouth belongs to the child-eating witch Rangda from Balinese mythology. Goa Gajah was listed as a tentative UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995.
Pura Tirta Empul
Tirtha Empul Temple is a Hindu temple, built in 926 A.D, during the Warmadewa dynasty (from the 10th to 14th centuries), at a site where there was a large water spring. It is famous for its holy water and this is where many Hindu Bali people go for purification. It is about a 10 minutes drive from the villa.
Tirta Umpul Temple is a very active temple and as such is an interesting place to observe Hindu devotees purifying themselves by means of ritual bathing. It is especially recommended to visit on a full moon day, which has special significance in Bali.
