You can feed the fish, roam the lush forest landscape, and even drink the pure cold water from the springs.

  • Peaceful and quiet place in Bali. This was the first of many temples. This is the one I liked most due to the picturesque setting and lack of (other) tourists. Very beautifully built. Surroundings are green and tranquil. Take a walk in temple area to appreciate the natural beauty. There are some lotuses blooming in the pool. A very nice view of the valley down below and some rice fields.
  • Beautiful, peaceful temple. About a 40 minute drive north of Ubud. Very relaxing vibe, you can do a small purification ceremony too. And feed the fishes. Also has a small swimming pool where people come to bathe, usually after school. Was not very busy when we went, besides a couple of small tourist groups. I think it was 20k rupiah or something for foreigners to enter. Also has a changing room and bathrooms if needed.
