I went to this temple because they said it's the second biggest pura in Bali. The Entrance fee was 35.000 per person - which is quite expensive compared to other sites which usually cost sbout 15.000. We went to the toilet first before we go which is very dirty and smelly. Then we were directed to go into a hall,... More

This temple is near a large volcano which features in its history as it was destroyed by an eruption and rebuilt at this new location. As one of the most important temples in Bali it is large, colourful and most impressive (also a delight for any photographer). It is certainly worth including on a visit to this area. The locals...

The situation and localization of the temple is correctly on the higher places such as north and east. For the HIndu worships are faced to both places.

Entrance Ticket is the highest priced of all the attractions we have been to in Bali - but it comes with a welcome drink which is NOT available even if you ask for it. The Sarong rentals are a must - we were able to bargain for 10K for 2 pax with much effort. But its depending on your luck.... More

This was a beautiful temple with a gorgeous view of the volcano as well as an additional temple inside made purely of volcanic rock. The only downside however was how aggressive the ladies outside were insisting on your buying their stuff and how it costs 2000 Rupie per person to enter but they force you to wear the Sarie and...

This is such a beautiful temple and location for a visit but was tarnished by all types of fee you were forced to pay in order to enter the temple site... When you arrive, you have to pay for the entrance fee...then you have to pay again for the sarong...after that they will tell you that a belt is compulsory... More

We visited this temple on the way back from hiking. Comparing with other temples this is quite expensive and no sarong available. so if you visit this temple make sure bring sarong otherwise you force to buy one!

We drove up here on motorbike, and it was a really lovely drive up and around the area, but overall we left feeling like we had fallen into a trap. The locals here seem much pushier than anywhere else we had been to. Firstly, there's a fee to even drive into the area which you have to pay to even... More
