This temple was gorgeous. You can pay for a sarong -10000rp each. They don’t try selling you anything else but you can donate if you want. The buildings were very intricately designed. Worth a visit while visiting Ubud.

Visited this local temple during our stay in Bali. Ladies you need to cover your shoulders and everyone has to wear a sarong, there are lan ones there. A donation is asked for. Nice enough for tourists to get a feel for this culture.

It is a large piece of cloth that you tie around your waist to cover your legs. BOTH men and women need to put on when going in to the Temple.
