Yes, it's Koblenz.

The photos don't give any results for me but I suspect results differ according to where you are.

The most well-known Koblenz fountain is the Schängelbrunnen, a naughty boy who occasionally spits water at unsuspecting passers-by.

Koblenz is a very pleasant city set at the confluence of the Rhine and the Moselle, at the northern end of the Rhine Gorge. There's a castle, a fortress, a cable car, lots of history and some very enjoyable riverside walks.

I think this is not easy.
Where is this ancient, restored Hindu temple with adjacent Muslim grave?

Are we in Bali?

Right country, but wrong island.

Have you posted this before? I ask because I have never been to Indonesia, but I 100% recognised this and knew where it was even before the previous comments. I won't say where it is, in case I am remembering an earlier post.

You remember well, I have posted the first photo before, but withdrew it. The site has not yet been guessed.
I wonder where you think it is, you may tell later.

I found the previous post, 1960. You may remember another, similar temple.

It is not here:

I've sent you a message with where I am thinking it is. I was wondering whether I researched it when you put it up before, but that seems unlikely if it was withdrawn, as I only research once it has been going for some time. Hmmm, if I do have the right place, then I'm not sure how - or even just to have got to Indonesia. Maybe I've seen it elsewhere and just don't remember. No matter anyway, I'm sure someone else will get it soon enough!

The temple was discovered on a small hill in the 1960ies and restored in the 70ies. In the hamlet on the hill they displayed these photos of the restoration:

That hamlet also has a special history and consists of only six houses:

When my wife ad visited the site in 2010, we had lunch in this restaurant:

We need some clues.
The little temple is located in a village at 17 kilometres from the nearest town.
Other attractions in the vicinity of the town are:

At 25 kilometres a traditional village:

At 30 kilometres, a volcano:

At 27 kilometres, a steam vent:

At 14 kilometres, a lake resort:

At my place it is now 8pm. If by tomorrow nobody at least has mentioned the town, I will declare Tabitha the winner. She needed only the temple photo to name it.
