Pros: Temple surrounded by rice fields and waterfalls, great location for the views Cons: 200 odd steps to climb down and up so can be tiring Overall: highly recommend, one of the best attractions near ubud

Beautiful and special temple close to our Villa in Sebatu. Very quiet and tranquil in comparison to the other temples, but very special on it's own. We really enjoyed it plus feeding the fish was the highlight of our third visit to it.

Amazing place and setting, could easily double up as a movie set. Certainly don’t think that you were robbed at the 15000 rph entrance fee. Plenty of photos and felt like a real sacred place.

The history of this temple is very interesting and intriguing to me. The place was very cool and beautiful also. Good enough for those into temple and history. 😊
