  • It is near the city center, at walking distance from Monkey Forest. The entrance is free and the view is very nice.

  • As with Ubud Palace, defo worth checking out if I’m the area already. Bit wet when we went but still very nice. Photos show it looks stunning at night! Like many places you cannot enter the gate, but very nice to see regardless. Surrounded by water and plants is a nice touch. Starbucks at the entrance. Walk don’t drive as again it’s a nightmare on the street. Free entry!
  • The temple interior seems to be closed to public, but the exterior is still incredibly beautiful. It’s a nice pit stop if you are in the area for a quick photo, or having a meal overlooking the lotus pond - view from the lotus cafe looked to be great for this. Don’t know if they have closing hours, but it was still accessible to the public when we went by at 9:55pm!
