Pura Maduwe  
 Known as:        
 Description:   Pura Meduwe Karang was constructed in 1890 by people who arrived to Kubutambahan from an extinct Balinese village of Bulian. The temple is dedicated to Batara Meduwe Karang, a god which offers protection on the fertility of the agricultural land. Pura Meduwe Karang also has shrines dedicated to the sun god Surya and to Mother Earth, all related with the concept of protection of the land's fertility. The temple compound is surrounded with walls, which is reinforced at intervals by pillars topped with carved floral decoration.
On the side of the main shrine is a depiction of a westerner riding a bicycle. The relief is a depiction of Dutch artist W.O.J. Nieuwenkamp who explored Bali with his bicycle in 1904. This is not the only depiction of a westerner in a Balinese temple.
