I couldn't tell which one is the oldest standing structure in Bali... but there's few well known one such as this:

Gunung Kawi Temple - the sclupture on the rock apperently dates back to the 11th century.. and ever since then the temple had been expanded.


Although this is even older:

Elephant Cave temple - the cave's scupture dates back to the 9th century

As for actual structure

Candi Kalibukbuk - Buddhist temple which is most likely to be built when Buddhism was still thriving in Bali, probably in the era in when the Sailendras ruled Bali back in the 9th-10th century.

however the current structure is "rebuilt" from the ruins.
