Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is the residence of the Royal Family of Ubud, located at the junction of Jl. Raya Ubud and Jl. Monkey Forest. This palace building has been used by the Royal family for Ubud for centuries. it was first constructed in 1640, then renovated and expanded in the early 19th-century.

    You can enter the palace grounds freely during the day to see the classic Balinese Hindu temple architecture which is delicate and rather photogenic. It is worth 10-15 minutes for a quick look-see when sightseeing in the area.

    During the evenings, the palace then transforms into a venue for traditional Balinese dance performances. These are held nightly and you can book tickets throughout Ubud at different travel businesses and hotels.

    On Kunningan day (10th day after Galungan) is a big ceremony in Taman Pule Temple in Mas village. For those of you who wish to experience real Bali culture this is a must for you. After the initial first day (you can see traditional Wayang Wong dance in Temple forecourt) there are procesions of tall offerings each afternoon for three days from different Banyars (Village co-ops so to speak) meeting pavilions. The Temple is alive with many ceremonies and outside there is an array of tents and sellers of cloth, food toys and many other goods ...very busy place...enjoy

    We were glad to be able to experience wayang kulit. It was very much shortened for tourists, and included English parts, which makes it less authentic but may be helpful for some viewers. You also get a written synopsis beforehand. Being allowed to look behind the scenes gave us an insight the amazing details and skills involved.

    As there were a group of tourists in the audience who clearly had no appreciation of a foreign culture (talking through the opening music, giggling as the puppets appeared, commenting on sounds and eventually leaving noisily one by one) and this echoed the mindset in one of the bad reviews, we would like to recommend this show to visitors who are actually interested in experiencing the tradition with an open mind. And if you then find it’s not for you, we would hope you’d still show respect.

    Great variety of carving with various woods. Some painting, as well, but the woodcarving is their best. Congenial staff. We purchased several items and feel confident they know how to ship. They will use Fed ex to deliver.

    I met Karja when I was in Bali, I admired his work and he is very talented. Through his color I can imagine the deeper meaning of life.
