The purpose of this study is to formulate a conceptual model of destination governance based on collaborative governance in the Besakih Temple area. This research is a qualitative research with data collection techniques through observation, in-depth interviews, and documentation. Data analysis in this research is interpretive qualitative analysis, using a systems theory approach and the concept of collaborative governance. The results showed that the Operational Management of Besakih Temple has not been able to provide good services to tourists, this is due to the lack of common vision, participation, networking and partnerships between the stakeholders involved, namely between the government, the private sector and the local community. The cooperative relationship is still hierarchical and there is strong control from the government, stakeholders from the private sector and local communities are not involved in decision making. In fact, in accordance with the concept of collaborative governance put forward by Shergold (2008), the decision-making process should be collective involving all stakeholders. This study recommends that the destination governance model in the BesakihTemple area needs fundamental changes, the change from adaptive governance to collaborative governance so as to create a harmonious relationship between the stakeholders involved.
