Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary

A Balinese Hindu site, the famed Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary is populated by cheeky long-tailed macaques and serves as a popular site among visitors to Ubud who come from all over to see the monkeys and the temples within the sanctuary.

Hundreds of monkeys live in and around the forest, with many spilling out to wander the streets nearby. Food for them can be purchased at the entrance gate, but visitors should be warned that the creatures are absolutely aggressive opportunists, particularly in their pursuit of food. They think nothing of climbing onto people's heads or raking through handbags in search of something edible. They may even run off with sunglasses.

Within the forest are three temples: Pura Dalem (Death Temple), the Holy Bathing Temple and Pura Prajapati (Funerary or Cremation Temple). All three are sacred, as is the forest and the monkeys, who are believed to protect the area from evil spirits.

Practical Info

Monkey Forest Road runs downhill in an L-shape from Jalan Rayan, Ubud's main street. Entrance fees are IDR 40,000 ($3 USD) for adults and IDR 30,000 ($2.25 USD) for children. The park opens at 8:30 a.m. daily, and last entrance is at 5:30 p.m.
