Pura Kehen was one of the many temples my group saw within a three day period. Out of all the places visited, this was probably the least tourist-populated. Take from that what you will but I enjoyed my short time there. For starters it's a pretty small temple and you can easily see everything in under 30-minutes. For a Hindu temple built around the 11th century and 1,000+ years old, I find its lasting power incredible. I was blown away by the talent shown with all of the stone carvings.
A few helpful hints: #1 Men and women are required to wear both a sarong and a sash, something you can borrow from a booth just across the street from the bottom of the temple stairs. I simply folded and returned my sarong and sash when I was done, but a girl in my group was asked to pay 2,000 Rupiahs. #2 There are bathroom facilities nearby, just between the vendor stalls that can be used for 2,000 Rupiahs. #3 There are a handful of vendors selling sarongs and the typical souvenir selection. Don't be afraid to negotiate your price and walk away if they won't match it. The worse thing to do is brush them off by saying you'll look at their things later. Once they spot you a second time they will hound you about your "promise" to buy something from them.
