Beware of the people hanging around this temple. Unfortunately this was the first temple we visited in Bali and the experience was unpleasant. There is a man standing outside the temple harassing tourists. He will take you across the road to buy an entrance ticket. The ticket is 35000 rupiah which is higher than most other temples in Bali.

This is a great temple and lovely one. We were lucky enough to attend when there was a ceremony going on. We were welcomed in and took lots of photos of the dances. This temple is more than others but in conversion rates it's just over £2. You need to be careful as they have a trick that when you... More

They place is ok, but it's not worth it to go there because they are trying to trick you all the time on trying to force buying staff. They literally tried to scam us and pay more.

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...
