You can feed the fish, roam the lush forest landscape, and even drink the pure cold water from the springs.

  • The temples carved into stone are impressive and unique. There isnt a lot to it but the walk up and down can be strenuous for some. Down at the bottom there is a nice stream and a good few spots for.....  more »
  • We visited many temples while in the Ubud area, but this was my favorite because of the gorgeous rice fields. You'll pay 50 Indonesian rupees per person for entry, and this includes a sarong. Both....  more »
  • Peaceful and quiet place in Bali. This was the first of many temples. This is the one I liked most due to the picturesque setting and lack of (other) tourists. Very beautifully built. Surroundings are green and tranquil. Take a walk in temple area to appreciate the natural beauty. There are some lotuses blooming in the pool. A very nice view of the valley down below and some rice fields.
  • Beautiful, peaceful temple. About a 40 minute drive north of Ubud. Very relaxing vibe, you can do a small purification ceremony too. And feed the fishes. Also has a small swimming pool where people come to bathe, usually after school. Was not very busy when we went, besides a couple of small tourist groups. I think it was 20k rupiah or something for foreigners to enter. Also has a changing room and bathrooms if needed.
  • Beautifully kept gardens and water features. Also a good place for quiet meditation when it's not too busy.
  • Not a touristic place. Pretty very local one. Very beautiful.
  • This is one of the least visited temples in Ubud, so you can walk around without necessarily seeing anybody else. The entrance fee is only 30 000 IDR per person, and you'll get the same experience as in more touristic places but with tranquility. There are multiple temples, fish ponds, and also holy water fountains for purification. This is the way to go id you want to visit temples peacefully.
