This temple was so quiet and amazing to explore. still very much in use, you get to explore the paths, while also being respectful around those using it. Up in the mountains, so it was nice and cool

Tourists are a sideline. This is a temple genuinely revered by the Balinese. Make sure you explore the lake & paths around to get an understanding of the place.

This is one of my favorite temples being in the jungle. Very calm and relaxing. Not so my visitors when we went there. Make sure to have cash for bathrooms.

Stopped by on our drive to Lovina. Quiet temple in a beautiful setting. Was able to see a ceremony and spot some interesting birds. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.

We went there driving our motorbike from Ubud: the drive was very scenic, passing through lovely villages and beautiful countryside. The temple was suggestive and there were only few tourists. They charge 20,000 for the sarong.

Peaceful and peaceful temple with cool air here. To go to the main temple you will need to use a sarong. You can walk slowly and enjoy the atmosphere around the temple.
