Impressed with the landscape of the temple. The layout of all buildings in interesting. Unfortunately, I visit the place on a very hot and sunny day at noon, the weather deteriorates the beauty a little bit.

This temple is set in beautifully manicured gardens. It costs 20,000 rupiah to enter. You can't actually go inside the temple complex unless a Hindu. But you can walk around it and everything can be seen from the perimeter. It was built in 1634 by the first king of Mengwi as a place to worship royal ancestors. It is simple... More

This temple is meticulously maintained, easily walkable, and very relaxing and enjoyable to experience. No touristy stands pushing their products at you, time to enjoy history and scenery.

A delight to find a temple that is uncommercialised. No hawkers. The landscaped grounds are immaculately maintained and the structures contained therein are interesting. Even with a large number of visitors it's possible to find some peace and quiet

Our first temple in Bali, it is nice, good located and well maintained. You can take a walk around it. Don't forget a bottle of water, if it is hot. Toilets inside.

Stopped by this temple on the way from Ubud to Tanah Lot temple. Found it boring and there was nothing much to see. FInished in 20 minutes. Took some photos of the main temple (in picture) from far as the gate is locked.
