Yeh Pulu Temple Build on 14th or 15th century and are in a very attractive rice field setting. You can reach Yeh Pulu on foot through the rice fields from Goa Gajah but you will definitely need a guide for the 45 minute walk as there is no path to speak of. Alternatively turn off the Ubud to Gianyar main road about 400 metres east of the entrance to the Goa Gajah complex. Drive through Banjar Batulumbang until the road comes to an end. For here walk down the track to Yeh Pulu passing the small warung on your left. As well as the carvings there is a holy well here and the attendant priest will be happy to bless you with the well water. Temple dress code applies here. Yeh Pulu is a much under-rated and under-visited site - highly recommended.

We visited Yeh Pulu temple as a last-minute choice whilst traveling around and were very satisfied. After having visited many temples all throughout Indonesia I've always felt a bit 'templed out'! However, wanting to renew my knowledge and practical experience of Hinduism, and introduce the...More

One of the most interesting temples we saw in Bali, also because it's one of the oldest and virtually no one seems to have heard of it. The place was empty of tourists.

The entrance fee is 15K, it's very close from Goa Gajah to here. Be careful for the guys who want to be your guides - you don't need a guide here and the guy wanted 150K from us. Temple and the rice fields around it...More

Relief Yeh Pulu is located in Bedahulu village just 15 minutes drive from Ubud. The relief is the figures carved on the cliff just about 25 meters length. The relief tell us about the life in the olden time in Bali... nice place to visit...More

This temple is located close to Goa Gajah Temple. To get to the road to this temple will be displayed beautiful scenery. This temple is very small, but nice to meditate. A very place worth to visit.

This site is not often visited by tourists, said our guidebook. And now we know why: there's not really much to see and self-appointed so-called guides try to get your money.

Beautiful walk down into a valley with the family. Enjoyed a historic remnant of the Hindu kingdom in this part of Bali. A small river at the bottom to cool off with a splash of water. If you manage the steps if you have young...More

It's just one wall covered in carvings. It's nice and chances are you'll be alone. As it's close to Goa Gajah, you should check it out, but don't make it a destination.

Don't expect a lot, but expect a small jewel. Absolutely stunning and very well maintained. You are 'obliged' to get a tour guide at the entrance, welcome the experience to chat to them and don't get upset, if you are 'forced' to give a little...More

Very old Hindu bas relief carvings, but the real point of coming is the walk down the valley, which is beautiful. If you are wearing shorts, they will lend you a sarong at the entrance.

You will be provided with a sarong and sash for your visit to the temple or holy place, though it doesn't really look like the temples you may be used to. It is a very pleasant walk, but I found the guide's chat a little... More
