Lovely temple with beautiful surroundings. Get there early to avoid all the people. Really blissful and quiet. Bring your togs as there is small pools to swim in the holy water.

Very impressive once you’ve hiked the many stairs! The temple is caved out of the mountain in beautiful lush peaceful surroundings! Take time to meditate!

A lot of people confuse the 2 Gunung Kawis (Gunung Kawi Sebatu with Pura Gunung Kawi) - they are two different places and a lot of reviews here are for Pura Gunung Kawi (the temple with 400 steps) but they have wrongly put their review of the ancient ruins temple under this Gunung Kawi.

Anyway This place is the Gunung Kawi Sebatu which is a place where you can bathe in a holy waters - much less crowded that Tirtha Empul where most of the tourists go to wash away their sins. This temple was a lot less crowded and had a better energy than tirtha empul.

They also have a large fish pond where they have beautiful large fish (Koi and other types) which you can feed (honor system - put some money in and pick up the fish food to feed them).

After you visit this place, you will come across a restaurant along the way (it is a hidden gem) so be looking out for it - not easy to spot called Kubu Bali Resto (separate review given by me)

Gunung kwai is a hindu shrine. The entrance charge is 50k rupiah. But beware there are too many stairs and they were steep. If any with heart or asthma problems please don't think about going to this place. If I had read a review like this before I would certainly skip this place

The fact that it is less well visited than the relatively nearby Tirta Empul gives Gunung Kwai temple a more relaxed, peaceful atmosphere.

The tickets are a very reasonable 30,000 Rupiah per tourist, which includes a standard issue sarong. Next to the ticket booth are steps down into the tranquil temple grounds. After walking through a grassy area, one reaches the walls of the temple, with natural springs on the left - incredibly clear water with large coy carp in abundance - before entering the gate of the main temple in the centre of the complex. We had a guide for the day which added to the interest of the visit as we were told about the background to the multitude of sculptures and shrines.

Having left the main area, we headed to a covered platform sitting over another large clear pool full of large fish. The tourists have the run of the place until 6pm, after which the locals gather to relax, talk and pray.

A good experience for the soul...
