Mandala Wisata Wenara Wana Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Padang Tegal Ubud. The Monkeys are very important to the Balinese culture. This importance is reflected in dances and stories such as the Kecak and the Ramayana, in statues, carvings, and many folk tales.
The Wenara Wana
It is important to treat the monkeys with respect as this forest is their home and you are guest in it. Please remain on the paved paths. The monkeys may become aggressive if you invade their private areas (Wanara Wana staff and researcher may occasionally be seen in this areas-please do not follow them).
It can often seen how the Balinese Macaques are cracking open coconuts. If available they like to eat bananas and papayas too. One taken please leave the fruit with the monkeys. If you wish to feed the macaques, please do so carefully, and if they take food from you, please do not attempt to retrieve it.
It is also of great importance that you treat the trees, the plants and other animals and structures within The Sacred Monkey Forest with great respect.

Based on an analysis of the Pura Purana, a holy lontar book, which is a historical of the temple, the Holy Monkey Temples were built during the mid-14th century during the Pejeng Dynasty or early Gelgel Dynasty. The are three holy temples in The Sacred Monkey Forest :
- The Pura Dalem Agung Temple is located in the southwestern portion of the main forest area. This temple is the most prominent temple in the Monkey Forest.
- To the northwest, down a long flight of steps and next to the stream, you will find the Holy Bathing Temple with a structure of the `Three Mandalas`. The Utama Mandala, in the most northern position is the area of the God. The Madia Mandala, for disciples of the deities, is located at the cener and contains the holy pool. The Nista Mandala, at southern bridge, is the special bathing place for human beings.
- The third temple, at the Pura Prajapati (the funeral or cremation temple) is located on the eastern edge of the main forest, along side a graveyard.
