Read the reviews! Don't waste your time. Wish I had. They charge you what they feel like it by the looks of the reviews! I paid 50,000 IDR apparently for maintenance but more for their pockets I guessed as the temple was in a state!...More

We didn’t read the forums before visiting Pura Meru and instead went by a photograph of the three striking shrines. Big mistake. We were scammed at the door by an unofficial looking chap with a big notebook. He charged us 20k per person, telling us...More

Pura Meru was built in 1720 and dedicated to Hindu Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu & Shiva. It is a very nice place for photography. No restaurant or stall nearby. Also need to pay for parking fee - 3,000 rupiah. Entrance fee - 6,000 rupiah.

We were dissapointed by the temple. Run down and empty. Too bad we paid the 20k each entrance but oh well! Theres just not a lot to see here. Go see the temples on Bali, theyre much more well kept and interesting to visit!

Looked like an abandoned temple, they were no people apart from two of us. You have touts outside who would charge you 20k per person for entry without any ticket being issued. Inside the temple as well you have only 3 shrines . You have...More
