A very well maintained and beautiful location. There was a positive calmness in the area (I think we were there outside the busy time). Worth going to explore the area or even just sit and watch people at work to maintain the temple grounds.

We really enjoyed visiting this place on our way from Ubud to Pemuteran. We went very early to avoid the crowd. Beautiful place to stop for a few hours!

It is only common courtesy not to visit any temple to dress appropriately - no shoulders or knees exposed. The inner temple is... More

The surrounding area is very beautiful with huge garden, but you can't enter the temple. This place didn't stand out from other temple. Even during most auspicious pero of Baisakih temple had no local visitor means no worshipping in temple. However, still it has been maintained. I would have gone elsewhere and should not have wasted time and money. Most... More

Was taken to the temple by friend and his wife. It was a lovely picturesque location with the gardens and the moat. It is great that you can walk around the outside and look over the low wall to see inside. Only took 20 minutes to walk around and see all we needed to see, so make sure you have... More
