    A minor annoyance

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After you get out of your car in the car park and walk to the stairs going down the steps to the Gunung Sari Restaurant, you will be attacked by vendors. They want to sell you pencils,
    postcards, key chains, whatever.

    Unique Suggestions: Just say no thank you and keep walking. They will get out of your way, until you start back to your car.

    Pura Ulun Danu Bratan Admission Tickets

    by machomikemd Written Jan 23, 2014

    Favorite thing: if you are on a group bus tour or on a private van package tour, the admission ticket to the Pura Ulun Danu Bratan Temple is included in the tour package price. if you are on a private van tour without the tour package, you need to pay 30,000 Rupiah as entrance fee to the temple via the ticketing office located near the entrance area going to the temple proper and then you show your tickets to the guard at the entrance.

    the Temple is open from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm everyday except for major religiou activities.

    Fondest memory: entrance fees for admission to temple
