Yeh Pulu Temple, Ubud
(3.3/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. Take a look at our Ubud travel itinerary planner to schedule your visit to Yeh Pulu Temple and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Close to the Goa Gajan (temple of elephants), this mural of the 14th century, which extends over 25 m, described a few scenes of daily life and slice in the list of the many temples to see. Interesting to see and.

  • The wall carvings have historical interest I suppose, but are not very interesting. You get a good view of the rice field nearby but there are lots of them in Bali.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful rock carvings, get blessed at the shrine for a small donation. Then visit Yeh Puluh cafe for some wonderful local food.
  • Yeh Pulu relief location is located in Banjar Batulumbang , Bedulu village. Blahbatuh sub district , it is about 26 km from Denpasar City . this tourist attraction is a part of archeological heritage.
  • Very interesting. Be careful, as you have to pay a local guide to take you there, you aren't allowed to go by yourself.
  • In a lovely quiet countryside it is said that a demon cutted this wall in stone with its nails ;-) Come here and have a look. If you cannot find it directly ask people as we did - they were very helpful. Free Sarongs at the entry
