Photographer's Note

Pura Dalem Agung Padangtegal, or Padangtegal Great Temple of Death, is one of three Hindu temples making up a temple complex located in the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary commonly called the "Ubud Monkey Forest" of Padangtegal, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia.

Also called the "Main Temple" Pura Dalem Agung Padangtegal lies in the southwestern part of the Ubud Monkey Forest grounds and is used for worshipping the god Hyang Widhi in the personification of Shiva, the Recycler or Transformer. Like the other two temples in the complex, it is thought to have been built around 1350. The temple complex plays an important role in the spiritual life of the local community. The area in front of the temple is the home territory of one of the Ubud Monkey Forest's five groups of crab-eating macaques.

The Monkey Forest in Ubud is a wonderful place for nature lovers, like me, with the mixture of local culture, interesting fauna and amazing flora. it seems that no one from TE community visited this place.

When you saw this picture and two Workshops in the large format, clicking and looking at it in the new tab, you will see many monkeys.
