Also known as Mandala Wisata Wanara wana in local Sanskri language, this forest sanctuary is a secluded and beautiful resort for monkeys. The green foliage and the breezy walking path makes you want to visit this forest again and again. There are around 140 macaques in the forest that happily call it a home and you get to feed them and observe their daily life.
There are actually 3 holy temples within its compound. The closest one to the entrance gate is Pura Prajapati which is used for cremation ceremony for the deceased. A little walk further will bring you to the staircase that leads you down to the Holy Bathing Temple at the nearby stream. The most important temple is probably the Pura Dalem Agung which is a local temple for Padangtegal villagers. During my visit, there was a ceremony being held at Pura Dalem Agung.

Monkey Forest Reviews & Ratings
Cheeky little monkeys indeed. Definitely worth the entrance fee. We spent nearly the whole day there. The monkeys even climbed on my friend's head. Very open and fun. Lots to walk around and see. I wouldn't visit a zoo as they cage and trap the animals but all the monkeys were wild and happy. Definitely recommend
Love the nature here. We can see the monkeys being fed by the guides, and they're roaming free around. But we're restricted to have direct physical contact with them. It is indeed a 'sacred' place, here I'm having my very first experience to feel the overflowing energy of this place that made my head dizzy once I stepped in here. Especially the place that was in lower level close to the river. It's a great experience tho. As a guest we should 'honor' this 'sacred' place.
Worth the money. Nice walk in the jungle type reservation. Monkeys everywhere and even the cute little baby monkeys are able to be observed. Multiple entrances/exits. Large river that runs through, able to cross walking over some bridges. A few temples that were off limits. All employees were friendly and helpful.
Bigger than I imagined. You can have a good walk around the forest park and yes monkeys everywhere. They are cheeky, but not aggressive. Some will sit in the path and you just need to walk around them. April is definitely baby boom😉
Amazing forest filled with monkeys. One of the best tourist attractions I've been to. Hundres of cute monkeys as well as really beautiful nature. Takes easily few hours to go around the forest. A lot of walking but it's worth it. Forest blocks the sun, so it's not that hot in the summer.
