Pura Besakih Reviews & Ratings
It's nice when your tour guide explains the history of each temple, religion and culture. It has many temples here including the oldest temple in Bali. We were invited in the one and only temple here that's open to all religion or none spiritual believer. You'll find their 3 Gods carved in many parts of individual temple. You'd have to pay an entrance fees which includes one tour guide, a thin raincoat and a very basic sarong. We've used our own umbrella and our own sarong we bought elsewhere. Note that your guide will ask for decent amount of tips. Which is reasonable because they guide you through the history from the bottom of the temple to top. We thought 100,000 rupiah ($7) was decent for an hour guide.
Beautiful, interesting and very in-depth with the cultural history of Bali. Is a must to visit if you like to see vast green scenery as well as ancient buildings and statues. Very clean and well maintained. Many great spots for photos and with good weather, it will be an enjoyable trip.
I think public facilities during night pray very friendly. The atmosphere also great, don't worry we also can visit this tample during night time, there are several food still open and not really crowded. Love it
As it's call the Mother of all Temple, worth a visit. Entrance fee is charged. Tourists pay more at around IDR50-60K whilst locals pay half the price. It's quite a big temple area so take your time. Hire a guide for a fee to explain the culture & history of the temple.
The temple is huge and it has many temples for each god and each clan. We visited on the day of ceremony and hence it was crowded with local Balinese people who offer to the god. Only locals are allowed inside the temple. The entrance fee includes sarong, ticket, one way transportation and local guide. But then, the tour guide will explain only if you agree to pay the tip upfront. And he explains based on the tip amount. Since we said that the ticket includes tour guide, he was less interested in explaining about the history but the best thing is he showed us some spots to capture the temple. The return journey costs 10000 rupiah for each person. But I would suggest you to Walk as it’s downhill it’s easy and takes only few minutes
