When you arrive at the temple, you will be dropped off at the bottom of the hill. Entrance is free; however, it’s customary to donate. I recommend around 10,000 – 20,000 IDR per person, or if you are a couple donate 50,000 IDR. 50,000 IDR is approximately $3.60, extremely affordable.
Once you have donated, you will receive a wrap that is required to enter the temple. You can bring your own wrap. If your outfit coordination is important to you, you will want to pack your own wrap or be at the mercy of available.
The locals will “wrap” you up, and then off you go up the steep hill to the entrance.
Inside Lempuyang Temple
The second you walk into the temple, you will see hundreds and hundreds of people. In fact, it’s quite shocking to see. Everybody is sat under the shaded huts waiting for their turn to take their photograph at the Gates Of Heaven.
To the right of the entrance are three Candi Bentars. You cannot climb or access these:

Where To Stay
We spent three nights in Ubud and seven nights in Karma Beach. Ubud is closer to The Gates Of Heaven Bali At Lempuyang Temple, so if you are spending time in Ubud, then plan your trip from here – it’s closer.
