Visited as part of a tour we stayed approx 10 minutes. History is interesting that this temple is purpose built to suit the city workers.

It is located just next to the Bali Museum in Denpasar so if you are visiting the Museum you can just drop by. No entrance fee but you are expected to pay a donation varies from 10 -20K IDR at the minimum
