Uluwatu temple is precariously located at the point of sheer cliff on the island’s southern peninsula. It is one of the oldest and most important temples in Bali, one of the six original territorial temples on the island. Travelers rave about Uluwatu Temple’s stunning cliff-side locale and beautiful architecture. This combination is rendered only more dramatic by the crashing of waves more than 200 feet below.
But don’t think that you’ll have this isolated sanctuary to yourself. Uluwatu Temple is popular with not only tourists and locals but also some sneaky monkeys – many warned to be on the lookout for the monkeys, who snatch up things like hats, purses and glasses from unsuspecting travelers.
This sacred site is located about 15 miles south Kuta, along the southern coast of Bali which offers a dramatic sunset view from the cliff top. However, on the cliff adjacent to the temple, one of Bali’s most memorable Kecak Dance performance can be witnessed everyday on sunset that begins at 6 p.m. every evening. On the whole, tourists really enjoy this cultural display and don’t mind paying the extra 100,000 rupiahs (roughly US$ 7) to watch. Bellow the temple is a large sea cave and Suluban Beach, one of the most famous surf spots on the island.
Admission is IDR 15.000/person.
