Uluwatu Temple, Pecatu

Discover Bali's spiritual side by visiting Uluwatu Temple, offering some of the finest ocean views on the island. One of six holiest shrines in Bali, this structure sits on the edge of rocky cliffs rising dramatically over the sea's foaming waves. Much of the current shrine probably dates back to the 11th century, when a Javanese sage expanded and improved a preexisting but much smaller structure. A band of monkeys inhabits the temple--watch out they don't snatch your purse or other belongings. Though non-Hindu visitors cannot enter the inner temple, they're free to hike around the area. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Pecatu holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Uluwatu Temple and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • If you're staying in Uluwatu, you should definitely go along to the Uluwatu Temple, if only for the incredible view. When we went there were about 10 coach loads of people unfortunately - most of whom...  more »

  • The scenery is beautiful but there's just not much to do. The entry fee combined with the flood of tourists and generic sarongs don't make it any better. Mildly enjoyable. Won't be back.
  • The view is nice. The temple cannot be entered except for praying, but can be seen from outside. The entry price (30k for adults, 20k for kids) is too high in my opinion. I wouldn't go back there for this price. There are also some monkeys around, if you are interested in seeing them.
  • beautiful temple with beautiful sunsets. don't forget you need a sari but can get them for free at the gate. and be careful of the monkeys, they are wild and aggressive. they will steal the glasses right off your face and water bottles out of your bag. do not wear glasses, they will be destroyed -we saw that happen to this one guy and he was pissed. hard to find parking as it gets close to sunset so be aware.
  • The place is amazing and beautiful. Beware of the monkeys over there. They snatch your belongings. But I believe they are guarding the temple. Overall a great place. You get direct views over the vast Indian Ocean.
  • One of the ancient temples in Bali. It is gaining popularity among foreign visitors due to its magnificent natural scenery, and for its popular kecak dance after sunset. For local Balinese, the sacred ambience of worshipping place, brings busy mind into tranquility almost immediately.
