Gunung Kawi is worth the trip. About 30 min car trip from central Ubud. 50K entry fee. I read other reviews and it said 15K. Obviously gone up. Wear a sarong to see sacred sites. Loved the beautiful scenery and awesome carvings. The trip was...More

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!

My wife and I visited this temple during the morning. Not too crowded, but one has to walk down a street filled with vendors on both sides to get to the entrance to buy your tickets, which are reasonably priced for admission 50,000 rupiah. Then...More

This place is just spectacular, it was a 50,000 Rupiah entrance fee but worth every penny. We didn't expect it to be so amazing as from the outside you cant really see anything. We had already brought a sarong but as with all the paid...More

A wonderful visit to this ancient temple set in a deep valley of rice terraces. Entrance fee is 50,000idr and you get a sarong. A small walk from the car park and many, many steep steps which are very challenging. Lots of places to refresh...More

Pros: Temple surrounded by rice fields and waterfalls, great location for the views Cons: 200 odd steps to climb down and up so can be tiring Overall: highly recommend, one of the best attractions near ubud

Beautiful and special temple close to our Villa in Sebatu. Very quiet and tranquil in comparison to the other temples, but very special on it's own. We really enjoyed it plus feeding the fish was the highlight of our third visit to 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
