We loved visiting this temple so much. You can rent for a small donation the covers that are needed for the temple. I would HIGHLY suggest hiring a guide to walk you around and explain the temple. There is a younger guy that works there and offers his services as guide who also looks after the monkeys - book him... More

We went here with just a few minutes before the sun went down. So beautiful. Great views from all over temple. We were so annoyed with the monkeys. They keep you on edge, especially after the stole my wife's glasses. IF YOU NEED GLASSES AND DON'T HAVE CONTACTS, DO NOT GO!!! The monkeys will steal your glasses I can guarantee... More

Worth the crowds for the Kecak dance. While the view was quite amazing, I'm not sure it'd be worth it alone, better to combine this with a sunset visit and enjoy the Kecak dance while watching the sun set with the temple in silhouette. Definitely worth the drive out here (it was about 2 hours from my hotel). Watch out... More

Beautiful, breathtaking views from this cliff temple. Monkeys there are very naughty, they tried to catch my sunglasses! After sunset we saw there a traditional dance.

We went early in the morning, to avoid the huge amount of (Chinese) tourists. The view is absolutely breathtaking. There are monkeys and watch you hair clips and sunglasses.

Cliff top temple. While the temple is like any other temple however the location in particular makes it like nothing else. We reached around 5 and missed the Kecak dance as all the tickets were sold. Temple entrance is open only for worshiping (well I read it as not for foreigners). The right side of the temple is a paved... More

Stopped by for the Fire Dance. Interesting show however, As suggestion, you should not be charged for temple entrance and for the dance. The number of people allowed to see the show should somehow match the size of the arena- we ended up being squashed like bugs on hard floor for more than an hour. The show itself is something...
