Were there in December, early afternoon, not so crowded. As it is raining season, was cloudy so no reason to wait for sunset.

It is just amazing that this temple was built on some cliff and the scene is beautiful! The waves were very strong and dangerous so we stayed away from it. The view is beautiful and if we went in the evening, I think the view would be even nicer!

Like most of Bali, this too is another wonderful place. A scenic spot, it has the usual tourist crowd but still let's you capture your own moments. Fees applicable - adult 30k IDR each; children above 3 years 15k IDR each. Your vehicle (taxi or otherwise) too has an entry fee of 5k. Allows you great photographic opportunities & bearable/...

Beautiful view. You can't go in the temple. Still worth going there. There some other temple near by also worth to see.
