Uluwatu Temple, Bali, Indonesia

October 2015

Uluwatu Temple is one of the nine directional temples in Bali. More than the temple, it is its location that attracts people. Situated at the edge of a cliff overlooking Indian ocean, it offers majestic views.

Visiting Temple in Bali requires you to wear “Sarong”, the traditional dress. If you are visiting lot of temples, it is better to buy one rather than renting it at every temple. But in Uluwatu, Sarong rental was included in the ticket.

Many vista points are constructed to provide views of the temple.

The main issue in the temple are the monkeys. They not only snatch food items but also sun glasses and bags!! And you can get it back by trading with food!!!! They look scary and it is better to remain at a safe distance from them.

In Bali, people are allowed inside temple only for worshipping and not for general visit. Else, you can only see the temple from outside.

It is a nice place to visit during sunset. It can be combined with Kecak dance and visit to Jimbaran if you like seafood.
