An incredible complex. Set in picturesque, lush jungle and rice terraces and not overrun with people - it has a lovely calm feel. Absolutely worth a trip from Ubud - it's close to the water temple, so I saw both, but the overall experience of this temple really blew me away. My favourite attraction in Ubud.

We try and visit a new temple on each trip to Bali and this was ours for this year. It's a beautiful temple on a small footprint compared to others. Easy access (some of them can be a big walk or a lot of stairs, etc), so it's good for those with less mobility......A few stairs, but nothing major.

Its sort of a combination between the style of Candi Tebing Gunung Kawi and the water of Pura Tirta Empul. Nice photo locations and a huge Koi pond.

Little smaller than other main temples but so much less tourists and in my opinion much more beautiful. Still has purification waters with 0 queues no markets that go on for miles after to try get haggled, only 15k pp entry it’s a no brainier!

The temples carved into stone are impressive and unique. There isnt a lot to it but the walk up and down can be strenuous for some. Down at the bottom there is a nice stream and a good few spots for a photo or two.

We visited many temples while in the Ubud area, but this was my favorite because of the gorgeous rice fields.

You'll pay 50 Indonesian rupees per person for entry, and this includes a sarong. Both men and women need to wear these while visiting. Your walk to the temple begins with many steps down, but the steps are through photogenic rice terraces that I found breathtaking. This satisfied my craving for an authentic rice terrace experience, which I was unable to get at Tegalalang (see separate review). Also, during this walk we discovered that they have a swing here, and I would have much preferred the atmosphere here at Gunung Kawi on a swing to the one we had at Tegalalang.

The cave temples are stunning and a feat to contemplate.

I hope you enjoy Gunung Kawi as much as we did!

my group from Rahasia Manis visited in Nov 2019 but I had had such a good experience in Sept 2018 with my informative Balinese driver I chose not to go again with a big group. Ask a local!

Per the reviews seen thus far, reviewers have confused this water temple with Pura Gunung Kawi which is down in a valley surrounded by paddies with large stone statues carved out of the cliffside. That is NOT this temple. This temple is just under 5 km from 'Pura Gunung Kawi' whereas this is a small water temple called 'Gunung Kawi Sebatu'. Don't confuse the two. This is a less visited temple due to the name confusion and Tirta Empul Temple being the more popular water temple. You can bathe here in the spring water pools (separate male/female) without fighting the crowds normally seen at Tirta Empul. Great spot.

Visit this beautiful ancient temple early in morning and you can have it all to yourself. Place is extremely peaceful and you can sit here for hours. Must visit form Ubud. Sarong is to be worn to enter the temple which is provided free of cost at the entrance.
