  • Nice ancient temple, one thing you should notice they ask 10k for each person as entrance fee. But its not. Place is totally free for tourists, it is a donation and they do not mention it.
  • One can find Lord Shiva in Nataraj form in one corner of the temple area. It's a beautiful temple. Too bad the main shrine was closed when I got there. A must visit for Hindus.
  • It's a holy place! Sarong required. It's also known as Batuan Temple and Pura Push Desa Batuam. Very beautiful, numerous things to see. Was very busy with people from all over the world.
  • This is one of the most frequented temples on the visitors' Hindu temple trail so be prepared to see lots of people. We visited it as part of our private tour with Gede Bob of Family Bali Tours. We had to dress in "sarongs" to enter the grounds. Although the temple received tourists, It is considered a community temple of the Batuan Village and managed by its residents. The main attraction is it ornate design, sculptures and heritage as one of the oldest temples in Bali.
  • This is temple is nearby ubud area. Very old temple and nice to visit. Good for take a picture and see the culture of Bali. Let's visit this temple with GBT Gede Bali Transport
