To the right of the parking lot are rows of neatly built shops selling souvenirs, drinks and snacks - it’s the largest I’ve seen at any tourist attraction point. Of course there are guides if you to choose to hire one but its truly unnecessary as its easy to manoeuvre around the grounds, unless you’re afraid of the monkeys.
*Monkeys here are wild. I’m not exaggerating about this.
*In Uluwatu, I’ve seen a monkey snatch a little girls spectacles right off her nose and would returned for not one but a whole bunch of bananas. Extortion I say – monkey style.
*This is the only monkey that was cool as a cucumber when I made eye contact. Most of these monkeys, if you hold eye contact with them for long, be prepared to see some sharp teeth and perhaps sprint towards the exit.
The path to the right from the main temple leads further into the forest onto the other temples located within its grounds.
