Uluwatu Temple

Here you can discover another of Bali's seven sea temples, meet cheeky Macaque monkeys and enjoy a traditional Kecak dance.

The Uluwatu Temple is built on top of a 70-metre high cliff that overlooks the Indian OceanUlu means "top" and watu means "rock" in Balinese. It is dedicated to Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa, the Supreme God of Indonesian Hinduism.

Look out for the Kecak dance that is performed every day at 6 pm on top of the adjoining cliff with a magical sunset backdrop.

Lots of Macaque​ monkeys that inhabit a forest nearby also gather at the temple and are believed to be its guardians. If you're planning on visiting, watch out for your belongings as they like snatching small objects! If you do get anything stolen, make sure you have some nuts or bananas on you to bribe it back!


Every day: 9 am - 6 pm.
