Ulun Danu Batur Temple, Kintamani

(2.2/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Kintamani to Hindu temples. Can be touristy in the venerable Temple also has a pagan feel free to hear. You can get a glimpse of the Balinese people of faith.

  • Beautiful temple nestled in a scenic location. It's good if you are just stopping by for a bit to stretch your legs on the way to another attraction. I don't think you need more than 30 mins here unless you just want to sit and take in the sites. Good amount of tourists but definitely not as bad as other sites in Bali. I went in September when the season is starting to die down so I didn't come across anyone being rude.
  • We were taken here by our driver and I'm so disappointed he brought us here. First you pay 35k for a ticket then a lady hounds you to buy a sarong. We had one each but she said mine was just a shawl so I couldn't use it. She tried to charge me 150k to buy one and then 50k to rent with a belt. After some arguing we got it down to 30k each for my sarong and the belt for my husband and me. This was a waste of time and just a huge tourist Trap.
  • Please dont go there, its not the temple which you can find on google. Its false. You have to buy tickets from "polisi" which is mafia not real police. The entry is 32k and for sarong another 30k (for rent not for buy). Also when somebody try to stop you on the road and want some money for "entering the area" dont stop and dont give them money. They wanted 100k for two people...
  • Ridicolous price, 35K IDR to see a temple. you need to wear a sarong or you you could rent from a local for 30K IDR (another ridicolous price).
  • Temple features nice architecture and stunning vista's. Agree the locals were attempting to scam but luckily our taxi driver had pre warned us to this and told us not to pay any more than 10k to rent a sarong which was the price we got after threatening to walk away a few times not exactly the best experience but I've had worse!
