Beautiful temple in the middle of the rice fields and forest. A lot of stairs to climb up and down but the pretty scene around will distract your hesitancy. Very quaint, clean and historical inside.Ruairi Murdiff
Gunung Kwai is a really cool place to check out the temple is caved into the tbe sides of a gorge with a lovely river running though it. Its one of my fave in Bali. Beware there are many steps down which are easy, but the trek back up can be pretty sweaty!!Kaia Suki
A must when in Ubud. You feel like your right in an Indian Jones film. Takes your breath away when you go around the corner to see the temples. Stunning and worth every penny.
The stairs with all the shops are however very annoying if you don't want to buy!The Wandering Frog
Beautiful temple lost in the middle of the forest and rice fields. Impressive carvings, it is also a quieter temple than others, mainly due to the stairs preceding it's entrance. Loads of shops at the entrance so you can buy a sarong if you forgot yours or have a refreshing coconut at the end.Susanna Mariotti
Temple carved in a giant stone. You can really feel the real religious spirit here. The king used to visit this temple and there are many steps. Sorrunded by a wonderful view of the rice terraces.
A little bit annoying all the ladies at the entrance that want to sell you the sarongs. You can also rent one from the temple, if you don't have it.Shameer Khan
After going to the Tegalalang rice terrace, this is a great stop via a different way back to Ubud. Interesting temple in amidst the backdrop of a rainforestesque area. There were beautiful rice fields by the entrance and drinks and local products available going down to the temple. The climb back up is a little difficult, but is doable for most people.Selena Chu
Such a magical place. Visited the temple on Sep 18th and it was a local holiday. We saw women and children carrying offering walking down the long steps to the shrine. There were people playing music and celebrating. It's a very wonderful experience.Diah Fajrina
A long way to heaven..... This beautiful mysterious Pura located deep down the jungle. To reach this Pura we need to take a lot of stairs down by passing through rice fields and crossing the river. Very tough way to climb up back too...So prepare your stamina, own water and sport shoes. Beautiful scenery everywhere more than you can expect... So it is a must visited place if you are in Gianyar area.Wayan Sueta
Perfect to be visited late in the afternoon after all the tourists crowd. When you get off the car at the parking lot, there are many shop's ladies are offering you sarong but you do not have to buy as you can use one from the temple by the entrance after the ticket counter. It is worth to walk around off the main Temple complex as there arr stunning scenery of river valley and rice terraces. It is important to pick the right time to visit this place as it could be so crowded with visitors. Best time is 8am and 5 pm.David Lu
Beautiful place where you can take a lot of great photos. No need to buy any sarong outside as you can borrow one from the temple. Cheap entrance fee.
Don't miss the rice field areas (I think many people did miss it when I was there and I didn't see the pathway at first when walking to the temple).
For the explorers: I walked also south of the temple and village and took the alternative/parallel route south (follow the cyclists tour if you see them) and you will see more and better rice fields/terraces. I don't recommend to walk further then, was not much after the rice fields, so better head back to main road for transportation.Aaron Blue
Easily the prettiest, most worthwhile temple to see in the greater ubud area. It's lower altitude means pictures are best in the late afternoon and early morning, so make this the first or last so of the day. Lots to see and photograph, take your time. Sarongs are supplied free at the gate.Diane Bao
A relatively easy 10 min walk down stairs and through rice fields to a beautiful, peaceful temple. We arrived early (around 8:30) and had the entire place to ourselves - even the souvenir vendors weren't out yet!Seth Neeley
My favorite temple in Bali/Ubud! The complex is so huge that there is so much to see. We went late and there was hardly anyone there. It was beautiful and peaceful. Amazing photo opportunities.Łukasz P
One of the most beautiful temples on Bali, hidden in the forest and pretty hard to find so fortunately you won't spot big crowds here. Locals will show you the way and it's accessible on motorbike from Ubut.Denny Ryanto
A truly hidden gem. A temple complex located in the middle of the forest aging around thousand of years ago. The view was nothing short of spectacular. To access this place, make sure you ask the locals for directions. My first try using Google Maps got me lost to a small village.
