...And you want to get up close to a bunch of macaques, then this is a good place to see them. If you are afraid of semi-wild animals who may climb on you or bite you, then give it a miss.

The monkeys are cheeky and great little thieves but well worth the visit. The temple and structures are amazing to see

Sorry but I don’t remember. It was a lot cheaper than I anticipated. The website says IDR50,000 per adult and IDR 40,000 per child.
