Ubud Monkey forest Bali

The peaceful and beautiful Ubud Monkey Forest is one of the best things to do in Ubud. The Balinese people think of this island as a paradise. It is full of beautiful temples, calm rivers, old trees, and hundreds of mischievous monkeys. Since the monkeys are free to move around, this is a great chance to see them in their natural environment. Here is everything you need to know about Bali’s Ubud Monkey Forest.

Both Pura Dalem Agung Padangtegal, which was built in the 1400s, and Pura Prajapati, which is about the rituals of village burials, are popular tourist destinations. Ancient monuments and artifacts in the area are hidden by thick vegetation and don’t get much light, which adds to the creepy and old-fashioned feel of the area.

The banyan tree roots hanging from the abandoned dragon stairs make for a very interesting photo opportunity. Pura Beji is an old temple that is north of the main part of the Ubud Monkey Forest. It is highly recommended that you go there.

Ancient Hindu ideas were used to build and keep up the Ubud Monkey Forest. The goal of these rules is for people to live in harmony with their surroundings and with nature. This is a sanctuary for about 700 monkeys, but it also has important spiritual meaning for the people who live nearby.
