Sari, found in the heart of the forest. The monkeys of the forest are
believed to be sacred and indeed will approach anyone paying respects at
the temple. But visitors should be aware that these monkeys are
attracted to shiny objects, so cameras and jeweler should be left behind
or kept well hidden under clothes or in a bag when exploring Sangeh
Bali.

of approximately 6 hectares is filled with giant nutmeg trees that can

monkeys that inhabit the trees and the temple, Pura Bukit sari, located
in the heart of the forest. The temple, Pura Bukit Sari, was originally
built around the 17th century as an agricultural temple and has been
restored several times, most recently in 1973. In the central courtyard,
a large statue of Garuda, an old carving of uncertain date, symbolizes
freedom from suffering and the attainment of amerta, the elixir of life.
The forest of nutmeg trees in which it lies was presumably planted
deliberately a long time ago, for it is unique in Bali.
