Alas Kedaton (aka Monkey Temple) is a small forest with the width about 6-7 ha located in the middle of the rice field in Tabanan regency, west part of Bali. This temple has about 1000 monkeys, which are mostly friendly in nature, and few dozen friendly bats too.
I have never seen bats so close in person, and which are so friendly, and actually pose for a snap. This is not the coolest place to visit, as many of us desi see Monkeys in most temples in India. However the setting of this place may be a fun place for kids.
The monkeys in Alas Kedaton Temple are very tame and free gallivanting in temple yard, so that the calm atmosphere is sometime solved by noise voice of the monkey, which are playing around and scrambling of food. The monkeys who dwell in Alas Kedaton Temple, there are jump up and down in temple wall, take a bath in moat or there is also hang out in few leaves representing impression view. The monkey like as custodian of temple, which are always ready to greet all visitor who are paying a visit to Alas Kedaton Temple (Wiki)
