Caves are rather small, more impressive from the outside than what can be found on the inside. Both buddhistic and hindu temples can be found here; the gardens around are rather charming with huge rocks, ancient trees with large visible roots and a pond with water lilies.

When arriving we were greeted by 4 ladies asking us to buy sarongs, we said we wanted to go in and check it out then we'd come back, but they were very persistant nearly jumping on us to buy one. We asked the lady on the ticket stand if we had to get sarongs which she said yes, so we... More

It's overrated. There are nicer temples around Ubud and outside. Cave itself is quite small. Nice area to walk around in the jungle.

While it isn't the most majestic temple I've seen on my Asian travels, it was beautiful and historical nonetheless. Our tour guide gave us a detailed history of the temple, we also toured inside, and enjoyed one of the gong bands.

One of the most beautiful places near to Ubud. You feel like in a fairy tale wandering all round. A unique connection of buddism and hindu filosophy.

A good place to learn more about the history of the temple. But the place is not a good one for old people as there are a lot of steps and slippery slopes. Kids have to be careful. Adults have to be decently dressed. Otherwise you can either borrow a sarong at the counter or simply buy a brand new... More

We weren't going to visit but our driver suggested it, lovely temple and if you walk a bit further down into the valley there is another part to the temple across the river where we were blessed with holy water
