This walk to the temple was a delight, you have a chance to meet people outside of the normal tourist areas, and the rice paddies are awe inspiring.

It's not so big as its sister temples of Borobudur and Prambanan, but certainly worth the visit. If it were only for the fact that it's less touristic than the other two. The scenic walk through the rice paddies definitely is part of the fun...More

This is a must see. It is an hours drive from Borobodur and then a quick walk through paddy fields, on a paved road. Considered the oldest Hindu temple on the island, and some say, used as a focal point for future temple construction including...More

45 min's on the back of a motor-bike plus a short walk to the temple. Views along the way are magical. Temple itself is in a fantastic position but sadly has been damaged by thoughtless people scratching their names into a piece of our history....More

The highlight of the 40min hike up to this lesser known Hindu Temple is the gorgeous view of the rice paddies & meeting the local folks working in the fields. You don't see this large expanse of rice paddies in Bali anymore. The path up...More

Ruins of a small Hindu temple. One gets there via a delightful walk through beautiful terraced rice paddies. The temple isn't much, but the walk was spectacular. Our visit was arranged by our hotel, Villa Borobudur.
