Gajah temple is an average place to visit, may be you will enjoy more if you have interest in heritage sites and history. They will make you wear a long skirt like thing they call sarong, similar to lungi in India :)

Our tour guide took us there and the temple is very interesting, with the elephant cave and a beautiful lotus lake, to name a few things to do. Sarong is mandatory but they lend it to you at the entrance. In our visit we saw...More

Awesome place to visit. We loved it and worth the trip. Our kids loved the frogs in the ponds all around the temples.

Just another temple. The carving in the rock was cool and the place had a nice vibe but really there’s not much going on here. A tiny cave you can pop into, a small pond you can pose next to. Average.

Visiting so many temples in Bali one may get confused which one is which. But this one is different - the elephant which does not look like elephant at all is caved in the rock. You get inside into the small claustrophobic room where monks...More

Lots of people selling sarong outside the temple but sarong is included in the entrance fees. Pay the parking fees when you exit the temple. Make sure you walk around the temple after you entering the cave. There's something else!

That’s not my understanding. The rule is no menstruating women can enter the temples.
