Yeh Pulu Temple, Ubud

3.1
#3 of 7 in Historic Sites in Ubud
Hidden among the bright green rice fields and banana trees, Yeh Pulu Temple features a collection of 14th-century carvings on a stone wall. First discovered in the 1920s, the site was then extensively excavated in 1929. Don a traditional (and required) sarong, and walk along the fascinating wall with a gentle waterfall to one side. Follow the lush gardens and Hindu sculptures down the path as you interpret stories of ancient life in Bali. Visit the ritual holy bathing pools and the spirit water fountains to learn more about the deep connection between water, the rice fields, and the people.

  • This is a very ancient Balinese temple site, I would rather call it a place of mystery. With sculptures in the rock, to abandon the puzzles. In one place, the development of Balinese culture originated from. An experienced guide (such as Agung RAI), the religion/culture and history in Bali knows about, is some interesting note on correlations can give, that are anyway not accessible with normal Western and modern thinking. A place with strong spiritual force. If he remains as he is, and not crowded and commercialized, it is better. And who is too much the equivalent of 2 or €3 as a donation, which give out rather they at a Café in Ubud.
