9. Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary

At the bottom of Monkey Forest Road lies a Balinese Hindu site called The Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary populated by cheeky long-tailed macaques. It's a popular site with visitors to Ubud who come to see the hundreds of monkeys living in and around the monkey forest and the temples within the sanctuary. You can purchase food for them at the entrance gate but be warned that the monkeys are aggressive in their pursuit of food. They will think nothing of climbing on you or raking through your bag in search of something edible.

There are 3 temples within the forest, Pura Dalem (death temple), the Holy Bathing Temple and Pura Prajapati (funerary or cremation temple). All 3 of these temples are sacred, as is the forest and the monkeys, who are believed to protect the area from evil spirits.
