The drive to this highest temple point is incredible. Just be aware earthquaked roads, crater pot holes and steep climbs. Once at the top, I had to buy a sari to go up the steps but once there, I was the only person and what looked to be the caretaker unlocked the temple door and I just stood and watched the peak of the volcano come in and out of view with the passing clouds; an awe inspiring experience.

This was an incredible spot. Not sure if it was a quiet day because of the low clouds but we arrived late morning and there was only two other tourists up there. We paid for a ticket (50,000RP each) just before we got to the carpark. They were two local mountain guides who now rotate with the other guides at this point, since the Agung treks have been closed since the 2017 eruption. The price included sarongs. When we arrived we were in awe with the peacefulness of the place and eventually the local temple caretaker came down to invite us in. He had limited English but was kind and asked for a donation to enter through the temple doors. 20,000RP was fine. He got some of the ceremony instruments out and allowed us to play which was such a laugh. We spent a couple of hours up there, soaking in the peace and on the way back down the ticket boys gave us some snacks as they said we had been there awhile and the drive back to Jasri was a big drive. One of the boys shared his story of becoming a refugee since the earthquake and how this new set up (paying to visit the temple) is organized by the government to keep the local tourism community going since the mountain treks have been closed.

Also known as Heavens Gate, this place is very popular. It’s good to see, however, if you have any idea of having a meaningful photo taken at the famous gate, think again. You will be waiting in line, potentially with at least a hundred others, to be allowed a few seconds at the gate and three poses. That being said, it’s very pretty, and you can get other good photos from around the gate. Go round the other side for example. You won’t have the same backdrop, but you will be waiting hours as opposed to minutes. Be prepared for lots of walking, and either take a sarong or hire one. Legs and shoulders must be covered.

We had to pay 50,000 per person for a ticket and guide. It was very cloudy and windy, and we had to climb 365 steps, it was a beautiful temple but it was eerily quiet but we decided to visit this temple as opposed to seeing Besakih temple as we heard that tourists get harassed a lot by the locals trying to sell stuff. We thought it was pretty but not worth the journey but perhaps if it was sunny, we would have appreciated the views.

We had a wonderful view after climbing 365 steps. But the temple is closed since the eruption of mount agun in September 2017. You can see the flow of a lavar and that there was a big fire. The temple is in good shape. You can walk around and enjoy the view outside in.
But:
At the parking there was a guide who wanted 100.000 rupiah for entrance and guiding. He spoke very basic English.

A very interesting temple to visit.
You need to be reasonably fit as there is a lot of walking and some steady uphill inclines.
But when you get to the top it is well worth the effort to get there.
The plus point is what goes up must come down, a steady walk down gives you the opportunity to take in the scenery.
Entry fee is 60,000 IRp.

It's hard to say whether this place would still have such an effect if it was merely one stop on the way up Mount Agung, but since it's the highest reachable point at present and since the views are very impressive it's automatically onto a good thing. More than that however there is a real sense of peace, serenity and beauty to this place, a wonderful calmness that seems to exude from the temple and the mountain itself. The people you'll meet are also extremely friendly, welcoming and kind, and there's none of the common Bali sense of being a financial target and nothing more - they genuinely seem happy and grateful to see you, want to ask about you with genuine curiosity, and are happy to share their knowledge and photo-taking skills for their own sake. A pleasing and enjoyable experience all-round.

Me and my wife was driven here by our kind hearted driver. He said that this is the highest temple in Bali (Because I thought that Besakih was the highest but he said about this temple, so we're directly went there from Ulun Danu). So we arrived there, because my driver actually lives around karangasem then we were spared, no need to pay anything (other than parking fee of course) and no need to use sarong. We arrived there in a clear evening. The view was majestic! You can see the top of Mt. Agung clearly from here. And it looks very close! Then when you look behind, you'll see the temple arch is above the clouds!! It seems like you're on flying balinese temple or something.

This definately one of my favourite pura spot in Bali. I'm planning to go there again this early May. I will see you again soon flying temple!!

This temple is situated on the foot of Mount Agung and therefore is also a starting point to hike up this mountain. We were driven to the lower ground of this temple by our guide after visiting Pura Basakhi. There is ample parking space here. Once we reached, we were approached by people asking if we wanted a guide to trek the mountain. When we told these people that we wanted to see the temple, we were shown to a small hut and were asked for 50000 Rp, but reduced to 20000Rp after our driver intervened and we threatened to walk away. Of course no tickets were given. There are a number of unregulated places like this in Bali, that gives you the feeling, that you are being scammed.
There is some walking up involved, taking the steps to reach the temple upper ground. This steps up, are surrounded by forest of ferns, banana and pine trees. The views as you walk up is amazing. At the temple, there was a sign saying that only worshippers could enter the temple inner grounds. The care taker of the temple, after some initial questioning, allowed us inside. There were however not many visitors at the temple. The temple itself is quite typical of other temples in bali, but due to its higher elevation and the mountain, gives a soothing feeling. The trip is worth a visit if you are in the vicinity.
