Ulun Danu Batur Temple, Kintamani

2.4
#2 of 6 in Sightseeing in Kintamani
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Photograph the many-tiered roofs of Ulun Danu Batur Temple, one of the most significant temples in Bali. This temple is part of a complex of some 285 shrines and pavilions. From these shrines, you can look across Lake Batur towards the volcano of the same name. The structures once sat at the foot of the volcano, which destroyed all but one 11-tiered building in 1926. After the eruption, the complex was rebuilt in its present location on the rim of Mount Batur's vast caldera--a crater-like basin formed by volcanic activity. Bring your own sarong--which must be worn around the grounds--to avoid paying an exorbitant price for a rental. Our Kintamani itinerary planner makes visiting Ulun Danu Batur Temple and other Kintamani attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Where to stay in Kintamani

As most visitors choose to stay in other parts of Bali and make day trips to Kintimani, you won't find a huge range of accommodations in the area. Options consist mainly of small guesthouses and bungalows, with only a handful of hotels. Because of their proximity to the start of the trail up Mount Batur, the villages of Toya Bungkah and Kedisan--on the shores of Lake Batur--have the best range of places to stay.

  • The place was crowded with tourists and many street vendors were trying to sell us flower hair pin and toys. But they don't pester you to buy from them so no worries.  more »
  • The temple itself is nice. However, you are required to rent the sarung at 30,000 per pcs. Thereafter, they tie something on my head and it's 10,000 more. It's full of tourist trap to get your money. ...  more »
  • We went to this temple in the evening. It was quite chilly and pleasant. We paid the entrance fee only for two adults, the child was allowed for free. Scenic view of this particular temple is very goo...  more »

  • Horrible experience! This is a tourist trap and a proper scam. like in the previous reviews - the entrance ticket is 35k after which immediately you are directed to buy sarong (not a choice, the ladies are extremely aggressive and I almost lost it). I had my own sarong, but they still made me wear some piece of clothe insisting that this is for showing "respect". They wanted to charge 50k for "rental" of that filthy thing. OUTRAGEOUS! on top of that, most of the temple grounds are closed for tourists and accessible only for praying... It really spoilt my afternoon. Horrible place.
  • I totally agree with previous reviews. It's a TOURIST TRAP! Got hounded by locals to buy stuff and rent items we didn't need. They don't understand the word, "NO!" Very aggressive locals. We paid USD $5 per person for entrance fee, and it was a small temple with half the area we could not enter unless you're a Hindu participating in a ceremony. Big dissapointment. Don't waste your time here. Go to other better temples.
  • Very interesting place to walk around and experience a religion completely different to anything I have experienced before. Some lovely sculptures and buildings to see and set in beautiful surroundings.
  • It's a beautiful temple in Kintamani highland with great view of lake Batur and Mount Batur.It's a perfect example of traditional Balinese architecture.one must enter the temple wearing sarung.Entrance fee is quite high.Many local restaurants are nearby.Parking is available.
  • Hindu temple with Ram, Ganesh, shiva gods there, be care full when buying the dress from outside, I boutique the high quality one for 100,000 rupiah
