  • Entry IDR20000 includes sarong. All who enter MUST wear the issued one. Bring your own if you want to do the ceremonial cleansing which entails a strong sense of respect. You can hire one for IDR10000...  more »
  • Nice to walk around the temple. Part of the actual temple is forbidden to people unless they are there to pray. It was really busy with people but it was still nice to visit.  more »

  • We went with a guide who really helped us out you need to but a ticket to enter about 30,000 and you get a sarong to wear (for small donation) if you want to enter the water you need to hire a different sarong and a key to a locker (this want that much) you get changed in to your sarong enter the water. The guide was really helpful you only wash under 11 of the 13 water fountains in the first pool and then under 2 on the second pool. The place has a great energy and you feel really refreshed after going in the holy spring water. You can go without going in to the holy water but for me this was the best part!
  • What a powerful place! Whether you're spiritual or not, this spot will make you feel a unique energy. Watching the springs well up from below is mesmerizing. It's a meditative place, and I hear the moonlight festival is something to behold.
  • Very nice area, walk around in the rural area before you enter the temple! It's way more authentic than closer to Ubud. Also, the temple and it's ceremonies are beautiful! Yet many tourists seem just to do the ceremony for fun, and only a few people come along and do the proper ceremony. Overall though lovely, and a really beautiful water source that inspired the ritual!
  • The energy in the pool is no joke, I felt it so strongly. Clean, clean, clean, just clean and pure! Highly recommend coming before 8 am or after 6 pm. Otherwise, the serenity will be disrupted by the crowd. If you can't do that, please make sure at least not to come here after 10 am, loads of group tourists raiding the place!
  • Very nice temple, you can do a blessing here for about 20 thousand (10 thousand lockers and 10 foe special sarongs). It is a water blessing and you will get very wet, very nice!

Where to stay in Gianyar

Neighboring Ubud has more to offer in terms of accommodations, but Gianyar itself boasts a feeling of being off the beaten track--something its more frequented neighbor cannot provide. Stay in simple guesthouses for a real taste of life on the island at a low cost, or consider one of the more attractive resorts, where quirky architecture complements the scenic features of the landscape.
