Bali has several monkey forests. Ubud monkey forest or... its name is..Mandala Wisata Wenara Wana (The Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary) is not as big as Sangeh monkey forest but it's a beautiful place since there are not only monkey there...but you can also find the temple or pura and tombs.

Located at Padangtegal, Ubud...this place is easy to reach. After purchasing tickets on the main gate (about Rp. 20.000 or US$2), we can enter the forest.

What to do inside....
We can walk through the aisle, enjoying the scenery and the atmosphere of monkey forest, visiting the Temples and tombs or playing and feeding the monkey.
You can see events or festival too..just check the schedule or you can aske about the events at the ticket box.

The Temple
There are three temples inside the forest: Pura Dalem Agung, Pura Beji, and Pura Prajapati.
Pura Dalem Agung located at southwest of the forest. This is the main temple. Pura Beji located at northwest of the forest and the third temple...Pura Prajapati located at the east. Near Pura Prajapati you can find the tombs.

The Rules
Although the monkeys was claimed as a friendly monkey, but there are several rules that you must know and follow if you visit the Ubud monkey forest.
  • The forest is open at 8.00 am till 6.00 pm
  • Don't bring any food inside. The monkeys could be aggresive when they see somebody's bring food or eat the food inside. Even if they put the food/snack in their bag. So..I suggest to leave the food in your car.
  • can feed the monkey with the food that already prepared by monkey forest management. I suggest you to ask the officer first before you feed the monkey. Can't find the officer?? Just find someone wearing green saroong.
