Monkey Forest Ubud

Sanctuary of friendly Grey Macaques in Ubud

Over 700 grey long-tailed macaques live in the Ubud Monkey Forest. This natural sanctuary, also known as Padangtegal's Sacred Monkey Grove, features paved roads through a green nutmeg forest as well as numerous old temples hidden behind dense foliage. Because of its community-based management, location, and accessibility of access, it is a popular wildlife reserve in Bali.

What will impress your heart
The Ubud Monkey Forest is well-known for its environmental initiatives. Research and research on the monkeys' health, food, and breeding patterns are conducted on a regular basis. These amusing primates can be seen hanging through canopies and eating bananas in their natural habitat. Several old temples with moss-covered guardian statues can also be found in the woodland. The 14th-century Pura Dalem Agung Padangtegal and Pura Prajapati, which is dedicated to village burials, are both popular tourist attractions. Relics and statues are hidden by lush foliage and receive little light, giving the area a strange and ancient feel. Exotic photo options abound with banyan tree roots dangling from gloomy dragon staircases. Pura Beji, an ancient bathing temple northwest of the main site of Ubud Monkey Forest, is definitely worth a visit.
General Information
Local guides and personnel are on hand to assist you during your tour to Ubud Monkey Forest. Within the sanctuary grounds, you can learn about the cultural and historical significance of the structures and temples. The employees at Wenara Wana may be able to assist you in recovering items that the monkeys have'stolen.' Avoid wearing any loose jewelry or clothing, since the monkeys can easily snare a necklace or bag in their search for something tasty to eat. Women on their periods should avoid entering the temple grounds, as they should at any other sacred place in Bali. Most guesthouses and resorts along Jalan Hanoman and the namesake Jalan Monkey Forest are within a 10-minute walk of the Ubud Monkey Forest.
