    Beautiful Balinese temple away from the crowds
    We visited Kehen Temple as part of a tour. Our guide was informative and it was really useful to hear him talk about the history of the temples and relevant rituals pertinent to Balinese locals. This temple is much more enjoyable to visit than the other more popular temples as it is not flooded with tourists which allows you to explore peacefully in your own pace.

    Beautiful temple with no crowds
    we were brought here as part of a tour. when you arrive you pay for entry and are given a sarong to wear. some ladies help put them on - whilst persuading you to come to their shop! they were very persuasive! the best think about this temple is the fact that no-one else is there, it was completely quiet and tourist free. it is a beautiful 13th century temple with a huge banyan tree with a monks cell up high. the views are also impressive. well worth a visit.

    Salah satu Objek Wisata Rohani di Bangli
    Pura ini disebut juga sebagai Pura Hyang Api di mana kehen dalam Bahasa Bali berarti api. Pintu masuk Pura Kehen memang agak berbeda, yakni menggunakan candi kurung. Di samping itu, keberadaan Bale Kulkul pada batang pohon beringin turut memberi warna lain bagi Pura Kehen yang menjadi salah satu objek pariwisata unggulan Bangli. Untuk mengerahui budaya budaya unik di Bali , bisa ke pura Kehen ini . Jaraknya sekitar 1,5 jam berkemdara mobil dari Denpasar .

There are no tourists here. I don’t have a guide to explain to me about the temple, so I found it quite boring because all temples look the same to me in Bali. The only thing people might be looking at is the thousands-year-old Banyan tree. The entrance ticket is used as a donation.
Entrance ticket = IDR 50,000/person

Too far east of Ubud for many tourists, this is a worthwhile visit and can easily be combined with the nearby Penglipuran Village and Bamboo Forest.

It showcases architectural features not seen in most other Balinese temples, such as the ancient Chinese ceramic plates embedded in the walls and the giant elephants at the base of the stairs. Carvings and statues are intricate and fascinating. A giant banyan tree dominates the courtyard - look out for the monk's hideaway halfway up the tree.

It's getting more popular (the persistent sarong ladies outside need a firm but friendly "no") but still less overrun than the more famous temples in Bali.

Compared to Pura Tirta Empul, Pura Kehen was deserted. That was great! It’s a 13th century Balinese Hindu temple with a gorgeous ancient banyan tree. 50k to enter like most other temples.

Kehen temple is slightly out of the way and not as popular a destination as other temples in Bali, which is a good and a bad thing. It's a large temple and if you have a good guide, as we did, they will take you around the temple and explain much of it's workings to you. It was empty except for us, and we marvelled at the huge Banyan tree in the centre of the temple. It's a very old temple and there was definitely a very spiritual feel to the place, the atmosphere almost a little bit eerie, but it is beautiful so definitely worth seeing. Only one negative, the locals selling their wares are unashamedly pushy and aggressive - they don't get much passing trade so be prepared. Remember to wear a long sarong to be appropriately dressed.

Amazing temple with a beringin tree (or banyan tree but locals call it bringin). It's a quiet temple not a commercial one. When I visit this temple there only 7 or 8 tourist around here.

I loved that this temple is kinda off the beaten track and there aren't as many visitors as other temples in Bali! Definetky worth a visit! The entrance is 30K Rupiah, which is very reasonable! Dress appropriately as it is a spiritual place!
