Yeh Pulu Temple, Ubud

(3.5/5 based on 140+ 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.

  • Saw a lot of statues with many kind of impression. Walked and explore with a guide! There are interesting history of this temple.  more »
  • Asked the Guide several times the relief to be allowed to visit alone. That was not possible according to his information, and so we decided to go on, because the donation was ostensibly voluntary at the end. According to some sparse information in turn, we wanted to give him 10 000. Thus, he did not agree and demanded 50 000, we but did not let him. The relief itself is worth watching but nothing really special. Had I known all this before, I would have saved me the visit.

  • 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
