After paying 50.000Rp for adults and 25.000Rp for children, we walked through a little courtyard to where sarongs and sashes were being loaned out to visitors. We'd brought our own sarongs and sashes as we were not sure how clean they were. It was very...More

This temple was very busy. A lot of people waiting to go through the pools. Definitely worth a visit. The stalls on the way out are a nightmare as they never seem to finish and just go on and on.

Though its abit crowded, we can still sense some form of serenity here. Even if we didnt go into the bathing pools, we could still enjoy the whole experience.

I love this temple. Their is something deeply calming about being here. Whilst I did not participate in the bathing due to illness , you can’t help but leave feeling rejuvenated. Highly recommend you experience this.

You don’t need to book anything through a tour group. There is a Kiosk outside the temple to buy ticket. You need someone (driver) to get you there, but fix with him the transportation cost.
