One of the better temples in Bali. It has a lot of history, definitely a must visit. Please make sure you go early to avoid the crowds.

This temple has elements dating back to the 11th C. The older parts of the complex are carved into the rock face, with the newer ones free standing. There is a long staircase down to reach the temple and then the crossing of a torrent...More

We went here by scooter, while stay at Pondok Sebatu Villa. You will get a free sarong at the entrance. We remarked that the entrance fee (Inr. 30.000 pp) is double the price of Gunang Kawi Tampaksiring and Tirta Empul, while you spend less time...More

The temple is right next to tirta empul so you shouldn’t miss it. You have to climb down many stairs. That’s easy, just the way back is a little harder ;) the temple itself is inside the rock so the walk is worth it!

If you do not drive then get a taxi, or make it part of a tour. There is not enough to do there to occupy a whole day, and it is a long way from Kuta or Nusa Dua for a short visit
