Yeh Pulu Temple, Ubud

3.5
#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 temple is located close to Goa Gajah Temple. To get to the road to this temple will be displayed beautiful scenery. This temple is very small, but nice to meditate. A very place worth to visit.  more »

    This site is not often visited by tourists, said our guidebook. And now we know why: there's not really much to see and self-appointed so-called guides try to get your money.  more »

    Beautiful walk down into a valley with the family. Enjoyed a historic remnant of the Hindu kingdom in this part of Bali. A small river at the bottom to cool off with a splash of water. If you manage t...  more »

    Beautiful secluded site for some lone time. Do NOT go with the annoying "guide" at the entrance. The easiest way to get rid of him is to pretend you don't speak English.

    beautiful rock carvings set in a peaceful rural setting, surrounded by rice fields.

    The entrance fee is 15k (as of Sep 2016) + 2k for parking, but you may be forced to go with a guide who will ask additional fee for a guidance (up to 100k, if you look gullible). Do not agree to use a guide or bargain the second price as low as possible. Also there was a woodworker, who tried to sell us his things for an exorbitant price in a highly intrusive way. Just ignore him completely. The temple is small, and it only has the stated carvings. On the path to the temple we found several fruit trees, endless rice fields. spiders, and a small waterfall. Would be nice to see it all without the annoying service I described above.
