A unique combination of nature preserve, wild animal park, and Hindu temple complex, the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary has much more than monkey business going on. This 31-acre (12.5 ha) park in central Ubud is home to more than 700 Balinese long-tailed monkeys, three ancient temples, and swarms of tourists hoping for that elusive monkey selfie. Located in the lush forest area at the end of Jalan Monkey Forest Road, the Padangtegal Mandala Wisata Wanara Wana Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary is considered an important spiritual and educational center.
