Gate of Heaven
May 2021
We visited this place in the afternoon. We must park our car at the parking area and changed with shuttle bus. The price for shuttle bus was Rp. 50.000,- per person for return trip. The road from parking area to the temple was uphill and winding. It took about 5 minutes.

To enter the temple we must pay ticket and the price was Rp. 50.000,- per person and we got sarong that must be use in the temple area. They gave us queue number for taking picture at the Gate of Heaven. From the shuttle bus stop to the temple the road was very uphill, the distance was 200 m. We may choose to take a walk or use motorbike and pay Rp. 5.000,-. We chose to use motorbike that time.

Lucky us there was no queue at the Gate of Heaven, and we could directly took picture. There was an officer that will take pictures for us. He used a black tile to make the reflection effect. We just need to give him our handphone. We took many pictures until we had no more idea. We gave tip to the officer. There were some other objects at the area. A big temple and the gate from the other side.

Lovely visit

Whilst on a car tour of the local area we stopped here. The line was so long to take a photo and stand at the temple gates. Beautiful view though and worth the wait.

Overpriced!! DEFINITLY NOT WORTH IT!!!
Jan 2021 • Solo
Since September 2020 you have to park and take of shuttle bus to go there that cost 50 000 IDR. Then you have to pay the entrance ticket of 100 000 IDR (and it's doesn't even include a guide) This is the most expensive temple in Bali!! DEFINITLY NOT WORTH THE PRICE AND NOTHING SPECIAL ABOUT IT (just the instagramable gate). Go see Besakih temple instead, way more interesting as you get a guide and it is a beautiful big complex. My advice if you really want to go and don't mind walking in the jungle following an easy path with stairs, enter by Pura Lempuyang Madya

Lempuyang Temple "The gates of heaven."

Ubud, Bali

Beautiful temple, but the lines are long, BEWARE! We got there 30 min after it opened, and we were still #112 in line!! This temple is about a 2.5 hr drive from Ubud and is known for having the gates of heaven. You can't enter past the stairs above this pic as it's only for religious practices, but you can walk around the non-restricted areas and take pics. To visit, you must wear a sarong and cover your shoulders.

Great Scenic

We visited this temple in late December 2020 during the Covid pandemic. It took almost 2 hours to drive from Sanur beach where we stayed. Once we arrived on the spot, visitors are required to park their cars in the designated parking lot, and paid Rp.50.000/person to ride roundtrip the chartered minibus to take visitors up to the temple. Steep price, but worth it. The attendants said cars are not allowed to go up because of steep inclination, and there is no sufficient parking space up there. The ride from the parking lot to the temple area took less than 10 minutes, but the view on the surrounding was amazing. Once we arrived on the base of the temple, we had to pay another Rp.50.000/person as entrance ticket. Hmmm....that is already Rp.100.000/person. The attendants gave sarong to wear, and yellow scarf for the ladies to cover the open shoulders. From there to the temple, we had to walk up another 5 minutes. If you like, you can pay Rp.5.000 for the motorcycles to take visitors up to the temple. The view was great, and temple was amazing. It is such a nice place to take pictures. They call it, the gates to heaven, and I think it is. Great place, worth the time.

Most beautiful view

WOW!!!!! We were here during COVID and there was no line waiting to take pictures at the gates of heaven. I can't say for sure if I would wait in a long line for the picture, but I think that I would. IT IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!!!!!!! This is well worth the drive from anywhere in Bali.

Beautiful

Beautiful site, of course the magical gates with Mt Agung in the background make it special. During COVID times there are hardly any visitors and you have the place to yourself, there is no need to spend more than 20-30 minutes. Photographers who make the magical shots with the mirrored gates to heaven are still around and are happy to assist you.

New price does not make it worth to visit if you love to explore
Sep 2020
It was around 3 hours drove from Legian area (no traffic at that time & we were lil bit lost). Recommend to drive with a manual car since the Temple will be high up there.

We came when the pandemic is still going on and it was sooo quite. We arrived around 10.30-ish and we got ticket no. 7! The ticket is our turn to take pictures. We were surprised because it usually already crowded & a lot of people queue since early in the morning. There were only some of locals that took pictures before us and less than 5 minutes we already had ours.

If you love photography then this temple might be for you. Who doesn't know about the famous gate with Mount Agung as the background? However for those who love to explore there is not much too see over here. The higher temple is off limit. Only for people who come to pray. Correct me if I'm wrong, there are 3 areas. 2 lower area also for praying.

It was kinda not worth it because we paid IDR 50,000 / pax for domestic. Maybe its a new price because of this pandemic? The plus was since we were the only visitor as a "tourist", we could take pictures as much as we want without time limit.

Btw, the temple is not as high as what people say. We only walked around 5 minutes.

Worth the drive
Feb 2020
I know I was skeptical about going to an Instagram tourist site but it was a great spot to visit. The locals were awesome no pressure selling, guides who explained the process for pictures including wait times and the local Warung where we had a drink talking to the owner and others waiting . All up we waited 50 minutes but seriously we didn't even mind with the conversations in a beautiful scenic spot.
