Bali Hits & Misses: Uluwatu Temple

Verdict: Worth waking up early, this place is NOT to be missed!

Regarded as one of the six most important temples in Bali, Uluwatu Temple (Pura Luhur Uluwatu) is perched on top of a steep cliff approximately 70 meters above sea level. With its magnificent view of Indian Ocean, its the perfect spot for sunset watching and dramatic photo shoots.

All visitors are required to wear a sarong and a sash before entering the temple.

Monkeys in Uluwatu are believed to be guarding the temple from bad influences but they are also notorious for grabbing tourists' stuff so take extra caution with your belongings all the time.

I was supposed to pose near the monkeys but seeing how aggressive they were, no thank you.

Tip: Best time to visit Uluwatu Temple is late in the afternoon - just before the mesmerizing sunset and so you can watch a Kecak (the monkey chant) dance, a captivating traditional Balinese production, performed between 6PM to 7PM daily at the adjacent cliff-top stage.
