If you’re an Indonesian, you’ll agree with me that this garden is (one of) the tidiest garden or park in Indonesia. Well worth noting that it’s actually a front gate toward the Temple compound inside. That’s why the condition is being kept tiny and very tranquil. If you’re from Western the tedious condition of the garden would remind you of those park in your homeland, yet of course with authentic Balinese feeling. After going in, on the first right building there’s a mannequin display of the famous Balinese culture, cockerel fight. Pass that and go through to the inner part, there’s the Temple compound which meticulously designed considering it’s placing and size. Although you cannot enter the compound (my assumption it’s the same with Uluwatu, it’s only accessible for those who need to pray), the short brick fence allow you to see and take picture of the compound. The outer track which surrounded the compound also carefully planted with high tree which gave you much more soothing breeze (especially considering my visit was during summer, the front area is very open and so hot). There are some small bench if you want to sit and there’s a building which act as an art souvenir shop at the far left corner. This spot is a refreshing stop/rest point if you’re considering going across Bali (west-east/south north) which also act as a tourism spot. Very near to the garden also small convenience store and local food booth, which could provide you with F&B.

Good sight seeing experience, with 3 main court yards and a huge garden to soak in the beautiful architecture and Balinese design. Entrance tickets are Rupiah 20k per person for foreigners (Rupiah 10k for locals). Female visitors will be given one sarong to cover up before entry. You probably end up spending 30 - 45 minutes here, with some walking around and photography of the sights.

Though this is not a big temple it is one of the beautiful and attractive temple in Bali. Very nicely laid out garden and the moat around the main temple is really impressive. The temple architecture is very interesting especially the top part. It’s relaxing to walk around the temple complex. Worth visiting this temple while in Bali.

This was a great stop on our tours around Bali. From the street I couldn't see what to really expect but as we entered and explored we were delighted with one temple after another. One highlight we had that day was a native lady making her offerings for the day. Her care in her worship was heartwarming to see. She would stop at each of her special locations to leave offerings and pray. I fun time was when a group of young Chinese girls asked if I would take their picture at one of the gates. Great place with lots of families on outings.

Very peaceful/relaxing, not too many people when we were visiting. Entrance fee is 20,000, you get a sarong if you don’t have one. They definitely look after this place. You can’t go inside but you can walk all around the place and still get to see everything.

Breathtakingly beautiful landscapes around the temple. The temple complex includes a wide moat, wooden shrines and beautifully carved gates. Excellent architecture which guarantees an abundance scope for photography. Entrance fee is 20,000 IDR per person. They give green colored sarong if you wear short clothes. There is also a large cockpit which is used for cockfighting, which was perfectly acceptable in their culture. Toilets are clean. No vendors inside the premises. Well worth a visit for architectural and scenic reasons alone!

Very nice temple on a moat. Unlike other temples not too many shops or pesky shopkeepers around. Well maintained and nice. Good for taking some photos.

This is a large Temple and it has sprawling gardens. The main section is off limits to tourists but you can take photos. There isn't really a lot to do here except take photos and selfies and look at the statues. They even have statues of a cockfight. This Temple is peaceful and is probably one of the easier temples to go to
