Yeh Pulu Temple Build on 14th or 15th century and are in a very attractive rice field setting. You can reach Yeh Pulu on foot through the rice fields from Goa Gajah but you will definitely need a guide for the 45 minute walk as there is no path to speak of. Alternatively turn off the Ubud to Gianyar main road about 400 metres east of the entrance to the Goa Gajah complex. Drive through Banjar Batulumbang until the road comes to an end. For here walk down the track to Yeh Pulu passing the small warung on your left. As well as the carvings there is a holy well here and the attendant priest will be happy to bless you with the well water. Temple dress code applies here. Yeh Pulu is a much under-rated and under-visited site - highly recommended.

Very old Hindu bas relief carvings, but the real point of coming is the walk down the valley, which is beautiful. If you are wearing shorts, they will lend you a sarong at the entrance.

Interesting stone carvings from many centuries ago that represent different life scenes. An old lady at the bottom sprinkled me with holy water. That was a first for me!

Quite place, peaceful, zen atmosphere, many statues of an other creed , religion, a holy place, Indonesian's Sundaislands faith; to visit temple is instinctive, sensitive and overall mysterious.

Its a lovely walk through rice fields to the ancient carvings (and old lady tending them and posing with you for photos and a gratuity...) but I think you're better off reading up on the place than having a guide tag along. I found his prescence and superfluous chatter more an annoyance than help. I would have preferred to be... More

This was a hard place to find, but so worth it. This is a place hardly anybody comes to. Its hidden and well worth the find. Go check it out . It is right around the area of Elephant Cave.

We stumbled across this place and were thrilled. It's different to everything else in Temples and the carvings are superb. The carvings are extremely old and unfortunately there wasn't alot of information about them but it doesn't detract from their beauty. Many of the locals of course, know about this place and some come here for prayer and offerings. Only... More

Very quiet and off the beaten path. After going to other temples and seeing far too many tourists around, it was nice to go to a more secluded area. It seemed far more spiritual for that reason. The walk was gorgeous, surrounded by rice plantations and beautiful trees and a small waterfall and flowing stream. Once there, there was a... More
