About Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary In Bali

The Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary also goes with the name Ubud Monkey Forest. It is located at the village of Padangtegal, and the locals of the village consider this forest the spiritual nerve-center for their beliefs. The forest is the home to the Balinese grey long-tailed macaques that are scientifically known as Macaca fascicularis. Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary has over 600 monkeys spread into six different regions (main temple area, new forest area, north-east area, east part of the main temple, cremation temple and central point). You are to be welcomed by the monkeys right from the entrance of the forest. If you wish to interact with the monkeys, just feed them with bananas. They won't do any harm. However, refrain from touching them. Lazing around the forest, swinging through the canopy, admiring the natural habitat of monkeys, capturing photographs, walking through the nutmeg forests are something that you do to prepare yourself to do.

Highlights of Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary

The forest is the home ground to three temples named as Prajapati Temple, Dalem Agung Padangtegal Temple, and Holy Spring Temple. Prajapati Temple is situated at the Northeastern part of the park. There is also a cemetery adjacent to the temple which is the temporary burial ground of the deceased until the mass cremation ceremony which is held every five years. The Holy Spring temple is on the north-western side of the forest and holds spiritual importance. One could take a bath here for physical cleansing in order to retain purification. The Dalem Agung Padangtegal is the worshipping ground of Lord Shiva. These temples orchestrate an essential role within the local community. The monkeys are considered sacred because of its association with the mythologies.

As per the census of 2011, they are over 605 Macaques living in the forest. The monkeys are perfectly taken care of by the forest staff. They are fed sweet potatoes and bananas three times a day as their main source of food. Sometimes papayas, coconuts, corn, and other local foods are also given. The monkeys are very territorial as they are spread in many different regions of the forest. There might be cases that two different groups of monkeys indulge in a fight. They share every habit of being a mammal, therefore enabling the tourist to see their day to day activities such as grooming, nurturing young ones and also mating. The monkeys have no fear of humans and are smart enough to approach only those who offer food to them.

    • Trip to Bali

      I am very delighted to share the Bali trip experience with you all about The Desi Yatri. We were on a trip to Bali for 8days 7Nights. Sahil from The Desi Yatri through Travel Triangle is the man who made my trip memorable. Sahil helped me in making my own itinerary with fine details. Thank you so much, Sahil for such a great detail planning and execution.  It was my wife's birthday and Sahil's presence and gift there at Bali with us added the cherry on top. He guided us throughout the trip. We enjoyed the beauty of Bali by visiting Uluwatu, Tanah Lot, GKW Park, Ubud, Kintamani and Pandawa Beach. We also did some water sports and river rafting, It was one of the most memorable experiences of our life. We were provided with the best possible services at Bali at a given cost. We delighted with private car for all sightseeing and private pool villas on a relaxing day. We enjoyed a lot in our whole trip. Thanks to the journey planner Sahil & Sagar for making our trip most memorable. Now, I can recommend with my own experience TT services/TheDesi Yatri service.

      Ubud hotel was best in every way. But the hotel in kuta was complete opposite. It was very small and congested. Candle light dinner was not upto expectations. It's just a candle on d table. Nothing special in that. It was mentioned room decoration once with flowers. There was just a single rose on the bed. Nothing special with that as well. It was mentioned driver cum guide. He dint explain even a word about any place, in spite of asking. Remaining everything was amazing. Nuse penida was amazing. Best in the trip. Beaches food nature was amazing

    • Trip to Bali

      It was Ok .. one day we had to wait half and hour for the driver at padang bai in scorching heat searching for the driver. The driver was waiting in the parking lot.. while all other drivers were waiting near the boat with the name placards. Also the tour company never provided the information on the drivers in advance.. which i repeatedly asked them for(as all times different drivers were sent). I asked the drivers.. they said the list was prepared always one day in advance as to which driver will pick up with customer. Also one of the hotels suggested was not upto the mark.. "Abhirama Ubud villas". The staff was rude. There were no safety lockers in the room. The Air conditioning was not working and making noise. After lot of request they changed the room.. basically a bad experience at ABIRAMA. We had all days at out own leasure .

      It was an awesome trip which we enjoyed thoroughly. But few suggestions for improvement like could provide better view rooms for first 3 days apart from this the last day stay was mind blowing. We enjoyed all adventurous sport still can add one more day tour on Nusa Penua island to enjoy the places leisurely. Overall we had a wonderful trip. Thanks team for the seamless coordination. Crystal bay, Broken beach were breathtaking and river rafting were too serene and extraordinary

      It was really great experience to visit bali. It was first time i went out of country, i was bit frightened before taking the trip. But is has nothing to be frightened off in Bali. We met driver who was very nice guy "thank you Mr Mandela". He was with us the whole trip for any pickup and drop. i would recommend prebooked cab for your trip. He also suggest few places other than our planned itinerary where we went and they were really good. We lived in Legian Kuta recommended if you love club/night life. We also lived in Villa in Nusa dua it was also really good. For vegetarian Bali has really fewer options and for non-vegetarian there are more than u can think. We took USD from India and converted then to IDR best rate you will get if you want to save money. It is recommended to convert partly as you can get money exchange in bali very very easily. We also took ICICI international card which was also useful at many places specially at airport like we had connecting flight from Malaysia but we didn't has their currency, we used card there.
