The Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, also known as the Ubud Monkey Forest, is a popular tourist attraction in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. The sanctuary is home to over 600 long-tailed macaques, which are free to roam around the forest and interact with visitors.

The sanctuary covers an area of approximately 12.5 hectares and is home to three temples, including the Pura Dalem Agung Padangtegal Temple, which was built in the 14th century. Visitors can explore the forest via a series of walking paths, which lead past moss-covered statues and ancient temples.

In addition to the macaques, the sanctuary is also home to a variety of bird species, as well as several types of trees and plants, including giant banyan trees, nutmeg trees, and ficus trees.

The monkeys are the main attraction of the sanctuary, and visitors are advised to exercise caution when interacting with them. While the monkeys are generally friendly, they are also opportunistic and may try to steal food or other items from visitors. It is also important to note that the monkeys are wild animals and should not be touched or harassed.
