Visiting Luhur Uluwatu Temple In Bali With Kids

Dramatic & Divine Heritage

As well as oodles of class, the Uluwatu area has culture, notably the awe-inspiring Luhur Uluwatu Temple. Precipitously perched atop the rocky cliffs, the location cannot be beaten for divine drama.

Once you’ve donned a sarong and sash, wander down to the cliffs to see the mythical Hindu statues and carvings. Sunset is the most scenic to catch a lingering glimpse of the sun fading into the ocean’s swells and waves as the light changes, becoming more and more magical. The temple can get busy but it’s always easy to avoid the crowds for serene moments, allowing you to become mesmerised both by the location and spiritual aura. A word of warning – beware of the groups of cheeky monkeys who are known to grab sunglasses, hats, bags and (of course) bananas! Keep a tight grip on kids and cameras near those cliffs! Culture vultures can check out the evening dance shows.
