Has everything you want from a Bali temple without lots of crowds and shops. Definitely head here. It has the holy springs too.

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 11th-century Gunung Kawi is characterized by 7-meter high funerary monuments that are carved into the cliff face on both sides of the brook. One has to walk down a few hundred steps to reach the brook, but the descent is picturesque with rice terraces...More

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. 😊

One of the very nicest and quietest temples in the Ubud region. We went rather early and had the temple with ourselves with a few local people. A good respite from the much more busy temples.

This place is unique, magical, spiritual. I heard a local guide calling it the 'Petra' of indonesia. I have never been to Jordan so I cannot comment on that but I fell in love with this place hidden in the forest. You need to walk...More

the archeological site totally deserves a visit, but it's best to visit the temple early in the morning if you want to have a relaxing and peaceful experience, although you will not miss all the vendors.  The best way to get there is to rent a scooter (~Rp.60,000 $4...More

10th century Hindu temple set down 315 stone steps in a beautiful lush valley. The scenery is amazing and the temple itself is a marvel. How they cut that out of the rock a thousand years ago is unbelievable. Just beware going up the steps...More

There are apparently 2 Gunung Kawis. Apparently, this is the less famous one. But don't miss it, as it is really pretty and a lot quieter than others I have been to.

Dear Andini42, I am not sure if there are any timings but i believe it's open all time of the day. Only criteria is that you have to wear a Sarong which is applicable for all temples in Bali. Don't remember if there was any... More
