Geographically interesting, since it is a pond within an island within a large rectangular artificial lake. A long and narrow wooden walkway connects to the island. Peaceful walk for tourists within the swamps. Worth to stop by if you have the time, albeit unimpressive.

A relatively small temple built in the middle of an artificial lake, accessed along a walkway. Tranquil and worth the visit

Avoidable if you're too tired. There's a longish narrow walkway over East Baray, which is good. Other than that, there's just a structure as seen across most parts of park in the middle of a water body.

The temple itself is nothing special. But the walkway across the water is great. But it is long and hot without any shade so bring water and an umbrella to protect you from the sun.

If you are dropped off in the car park, then it's about 15 minutes across the causeway. It's definitely worth going to and spending some time there. The view across the channel is wonderful
