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.

    Vibhanshu's 4 days trip to Bali

    It was great, only thing is please check your itinerary twice before you confirm as I thought a dinner was included however it wasn't mentioned in itinerary hence It came as a surprise to me later on.

    Puneet's 5 days trip to Bali

    Trip to Bali was beautifully arranged and planned by holiday2cherish as per my expectations. There were minor issues regarding itinerary however which can be ignored. Moreover i don't think that i can plan this much if i go self. At Bali, STA & its drivers are also nice. STA driver who picks up from airport promised for gift for honeymoon couple but we didn't get any. He also dropped us at bali rani hotel instead of The rani hotel, even we are not aware of such name issues. Thereafter the driver changed from day2 of my trip. He was perfect and had taken on as per itinerary ++. Candle light dinner at HongXing beach side and bounty cruise fun.

    Kumar's 6 days trip to Bali

    Resort & private pool villa both were awesome. It was a memorable holidays for both of us. Even the cab driver was polite but never came with us for photography or guidance (as told by our Indian agent that he will act as a local guide for us). Overall very good experience, I will recommend this agency to my friends as well. Stay at private pool villa was one of its kind. Lembogan Island and Cruise ride were also amazing. Parasailing & scuba diving were life time experience for us (paid extra for both as agency didn't included them) .... Overall amazing trip!!!! Cheers.

    Abhishek's 7 days trip to Bali

    We had wonderful experience, in our Honeymoon Trip was planned in well advance and Madhulika our Handler was extremely cooperative with all planning and suggestions. We enjoyed all the aspects of Bali and the Private Villa in Ubud was awesome. Her suggestions were helpful with the food and the timings. To just all the fellow travellers, do look in to the travel plan yourselves and explore all the options with your handler. My only concern was the Driver kum Guide, Rifan was not good. He was always running from the work, always late and trying to avoid the places. But it didn't matter because we were very much aware about the places ourselves so we were behind him to take us here and there.

    If you keep a safe distance from the monkey, do not disturb their activities then it is completely safe to click pictures with the monkeys.

    Department of Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, United State of America conducted 14-year long research on the monkeys declaring the species free of rabies. The monkeys residing in the forest are pretty much healthy and are monitored by the Primate Research Center of Udayana University

    There is a first aid clinic, lavatories, park and an animal clinic within the premises of the monkey forest.
