Buddhist temple. Free entrance and sarung. Really quiet. As you reach for the top the buildings and statues get more impressive. Worth a visit when in North Bali.

We went with our wonderful English speaking guide. The temple is peaceful and open for meditation when we visited. Views from the temple breathtaking as well. Please dress respectfully and respect the quiet of those around. A must see.

Worth combining with a visit to the hot springs. Entrance is by donation. A very peaceful place to visit. Fantastic views as it's in the mountains.

This place is a magnificent buddhist temple. There is lots of beautiful sculptures to see. The plants around the temples are amazing. Very spiritual place, well worth to visit.

We enjoyed this temple and would give 5 stars except there is currently renovation work ongoing. Cost 400k for a driver from 10:00 - 16:00 great to combo with the hot springs nearby.
