Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Yeh Pulu Temple Build on 14th or 15th century and are in a very attractive rice field setting. You can reach Yeh Pulu on foot through the rice fields from Goa Gajah but you will definitely need a guide for the 45 minute walk as there is no path to speak of. Alternatively turn off the Ubud to Gianyar main road about 400 metres east of the entrance to the Goa Gajah complex. Drive through Banjar Batulumbang until the road comes to an end. For here walk down the track to Yeh Pulu passing the small warung on your left. As well as the carvings there is a holy well here and the attendant priest will be happy to bless you with the well water. Temple dress code applies here. Yeh Pulu is a much under-rated and under-visited site - highly recommended.

If you like stone carvings then go see it. If you don't then don't waste your time. We paid the fee and then met a local wood carver who offered to tell us the history of the carvings. I found it to be very interesting and a nice way to end the day. We did the waterfall, the elephant cave, lunch, and then this. On the walk back the local showed us his wood carvings and we bought one but he never asked us for a tip or donation. I'm guessing he got what he wanted from us:)
It probably wouldn't have been as interesting if we didn't get the history of it.

“It was okay”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Nothing much to see. Only a very long bas relief. It was not very artistic. The entrance fee was same as goa gajah. A guard tried to rip me off.

No proper parking. No visitor when we went there. We thought twice. But went ahead anyway.

I managed to buy a Rama Sita wood carving for $20 ( worth $60 in kuta)

My advice is not worth seeing.

“Good for people who interested in ancient site”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

Pro:
1. Interesting site for people who love ancient site
2. Rough n primitive but very artistic stone carving from early age
3. Only around 10mins drive from elephant cave and Only 25m stone wall carving and that's all, nicr to put it if it is on the route
Con:
1. Boring for people who r not interested in art or historic site
2. Not for people who expect very fine and detailed stone carving
Tip:
If you intend to visit here, you may Google whst is the meaning or story behind the carving , because there is no descriptions at all or u dun want to end up some bad local guides here.

“Stunning place”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Had a fantastic time here! It was hot and humid and we had about 291 stairs to climb (if I counted correctly) so yes, be prepared for a walk and make sure u have a hat, sunscreen and water!! Believe me though, it is worth it. Absolutely stunning grounds - makes for great pictures and fantastic memories!!

“worth a visit”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We were staying in the village near Yeh Pulu so rode our push bikes to the site. A small entrance fee and sarong required. A half a kilometre walk with gardens and rice fields either side of the path and locals going about their daily business.You might be greeted by an elderly lady who will offer to be your guide for a small cost and further down the path you will find a man selling his goods at a small stall. It was worth the walk to see the end result in a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. We also loved meeting some of the local children int he nearby streets of the local village, where everyone was very friendly.
