Pecatu, South Kuta, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia
One of the highlights of trip to Bali, Uluwatu temple is situated on top of a hill (which means loads of steps). You must wear long pants or use a "skirt" of cloth to cover your legs (provided at the gate) to enter the temple as a sign of respect. Once at the top though, the views over the cliff and out over the sea are amazing. There are monkeys, so beware and make sure you don't have food or loose items (like sunglasses). Go just before sunset and enjoy the changing view before heading for a performance of Balinese fire dancing on site. Watching this at night with the sparks and flame just makes it spectacular.
Uluwatu Temple is a place to Watch the fabulous nature fascinating you. It’s hosts a scenic view of the sunsets on the stunning ocean. Enjoy unobstructed views of the glorious sunsets as it makes its way down the horizon. Be wary of monkeys who look very calm and fearless but can be very aggressive and would not leave a chance to snatch your mobiles or even spectacles and sometimes the jewellery as well..!!! The temple also hosts the famous and amazing Ramayana sessions ..!!
My first visit to watch the Kecak and Fire Dance was the best experience Ive ever had. Just the best. Loved the actors and actresses. Loved the interaction they did to us audience. Loved everything. Keep up the good work and thank you for bringing us this amazing performance.
Another beautiful place. CAUTION: if you have glasses, cell phone, bottles of water or an open backpack, the monkeys will go through it and take your stuff. These are wild monkeys so please do not try to touch them - they will attack The temple is beautiful and it is a little bit of a hike, but it is worth it! The fire performance was nice, but sitting on hard concrete for 2 hours was not. Even so, you will have a spectacular view of the sun setting. Watch it - the suns sets quickly.
One of the best temples that I've ever been to especially the location where it's built, overlooking the Indian Ocean. I just don't like the macaques that dwell in the area as they are mischievous. Also, the path leading to the temple is really hot to walk through, there aren't much shade to shelter under.
