• The area contains many monuments that date back to the tenth century AD.
• There are two entrances to the "Uluwatu Temple", one from the south and another from the north. The gates in the entrances are characterized by carvings, and opposite each of the two gates there is a statue with a human body and an elephant head. You will need about an hour to cut the distance between the two gates. There is a small forest located in the front of the temple where hundreds of monkeys live. It is believed that they originally existed to guard the temple from negative influences.
