This temple even though old is still used on request for current prayers. The Balinese family I travelled with made such a request and we were blessed by the local priest. The ancient temple is impressive

This temple's located in Kemuning area so it is very cold, and sometimes foggy. The view will be very great in the morning usually, the view of tea plantation are around, very green and beautiful. It is full with positive energy to fresh your mind. The parking area is not really expensive. And the ticket entrance is not really expensive... More

This was a very interesting temple but it was only because we had a very knowledgable guide with us who spoke excellent English. To get the most out of the attraction you do need someone to explain it to you. It was in a beautiful position in the hills but unfortunately it was very misty on the day we visited.

Want to feel like Po walking up the sacred temple in Kung Ff Panda? Go here! Driving up the mountain is a great trip in itself.
