I enjoyed this temple but I wouldn't go there if we had a long drive just for this temple. Even though this was one of the nicest we've seen around Bali.

One of the nice attractions in Bali. Very relaxing spot with a lot of fishes (koi) in the pond. Very scenic.

Cool place to relax. If with kids try feeding fishes. Beautiful statues of Hindu gods and goddesses around the big fountain.

Even in the hot day, inside there is cool! You can see tons of fishes inside. Good place to take picture as well! It could be fine to bring your own swimsuit and swim in there!

Go early if you need to have a quiet walk over the water pool, as this is a popular spot amongst all tourists. There’s a nice cafe inside the complex if you wish to soak into the scenic with a cup of coffee.

If you go as early as possible, without the crowds this place has a good vibe. Especially the small Hindu grotto in the back corner. Even better is to book a local guide in advance and get into the surrounding countryside and villages. Stunning rice...More

It took us about 3 hours from Seminyak so maybe 3.5-4 hours depending on time of day and traffic.

Hi, we spent there like 40-50 mins... and were not in a hurry. 3-4 hours you can even swim in the 'pool'. I think the 2 hours is enough.
