It's a UNESCO Heritage site that's why I decided to visit. And if you're an architect, you'd enjoy and appreciate Balinese Architectural details in this temple (or practically in every temple). I visited on a Friday during lunch time, I don't know if that matters...More

If you’re visiting here you HAVE to get the men there to explain it all and guide you to do the full ritual. Otherwise you go there look silly and don’t actually understand the point of it. They tell you what it’s for, how to...More

The waiting line for the purification in the water was ridiculous but we had a good time visiting with our guide that gave us good info. Worth it.

I’m not a religious guy but this place is inspirational. It’s still used as a holy place. It was however absolutely heaving with people. We did the water blessing, it’s truly humbling.
