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, Bali Reviews - Write a Review
Great place to go. Beautiful forest/jungle with ancient statues and wild monkeys. But be careful of having food or shiny things out, as the monkeys will try to grab them. I was bitten when I protected our house key which was in an outer, visible pocket, but the monkeys are regular checked and they do not have rabies. Would go again, but definitely not with babies or very small children.
I wasn't sure how good this would be, but it was excellent. Really fun. Don't wear expensive clothing...it gets get dirty as the monkeys climb on you. Bananas can be bought for 20/50 Rp or you can bring your own. They don't last long! There is no cruelty here and the centre is very well managed with lots of staff and no hard selling. Mornings seem to be quieter.
Monkey park is great because it's their real home! People here look after them and know some groups well. This is not a zoo and is really just their natural habitat. If you respect monkeys, don't touch them and don't look them directly in the eyes then they won't bother you. It's really what meeting animals should be like, when they are free and not caged up
Yeah, I’m not sure about this place but it certainly wasn’t a “sanctuary”. It seemed more like a road side petting zoo where the well-being of the animals is an afterthought to the entrance fee. It seemed like people where more interested in seeing how close they could get to the monkeys than observing them as wild animals in their habitat. If this ever was a sanctuary, it is past its prime and and respect for the animals is long gone.
Lots and lots of monkeys!! Most seemed friendly, however did see 1 or 2 jumping on people and biting. They did have food hidden in their bags though so definitely avoid that! Otherwise was an amazing visit, watching the monkeys is incredible and it's a really beautiful forest.
