The water temple is a great experience and something completely different from your average temple tour. You pay a small entrance fee when you arrive and are given a sarong to wear. Inside the temple is a locker room where you can store your belongings...More

We went here and end up staying about 2 hours. 10,000R to get in, 15,000R for a locker and wet sarong and a donation to borrow a dry sarong. Is quite busy, but it gives you time to enjoy the views. Water is quite cool...More

This temple is really something different, being a water-based temple. Believers go there to purify themselves in the holy water. Not an incredibly large temple and you won't need more than an hour to look around. It is also set in a forest, which makes...More

Lots of people on Sunday. Many locals receiving holy water in the pools. The buildings are very interesting. A quieter one but similar style is Pura Gunung Kawi Sebatu.

This is one of the temples you should visit when spending time in Bali. It is quite big, and you can hang around for at least on hour. Proceed to the back of the temple to see people crafting the offering gifts.

You don’t need to book anything through a tour group. There is a Kiosk outside the temple to buy ticket. You need someone (driver) to get you there, but fix with him the transportation cost.
