Worth a look around. Cheap to get in and worth paying for the guide. Main palace under renovation so disappointing.

This place is pleasant enough without reaching great heights. Mostly it's a series of open air pavilions. It's well maintained and peaceful. There were gamelan players entertaining when I was there and it added to the atmosphere. The entry fee is IDR 15000.
