Uluwatu temple is located on the edge of cliff bank approximately 100 meters high, the best place to view of the sunset. Ulu in Balinese means “head”, Watu means “rock”, so Uluwatu means the temple is in the head of the rock.

There are 2 entrances to the temple, from the south and the north. Visitors will buy ticket and get the Sarong and the sash. There is a small forest in front with many curious and aggressive monkeys. Be aware of your belongings especially glasses, sunglasses, cameras and food.

The temple is on the high cliff overlooking the sea. Looking down, you will see the white brilliant waves crashing on the shore. In the late afternoon, Kecak dance is daily held at the open-air theatre with the wonderful sunset background. There are around fifty men wearing loin- cloth surround the fire in the center. There is no musical instruments used in kecak performance, instead dancers shout out “kecak” chants rhythmically and repetitively. For this reason, they are called the Kecak or Car dance. The dance performed is related to holy ritual and the dancers are protected by holy spirit from the temple. You can enjoy the Kecak performance and watch the Sunset at the same time.
