Yeh Pulu is a complex structure with sites similar to Goa Gajah. The carvings go back to the fourteenth or fifteenth century, and are set in a very attractive rice field. It's a 45 minute walk from Goa Gajah to Yeh Pulu and is recommended to be taken with a guide as you will be crossing rice fields enroute. There is a holy well here and the residing priest happily blesses people with the water. The dress code is the same as Goa Gajah. This place is recommended because it is slightly hidden and much less crowded as compared to Goa Gajah.Opening hours: All days, 7am to 6pmCost: Rp 15,000 (₹75)
This is a 15th century set of rock carvings, which can be reached on foot from the town, though it is a few kilometres. From the entrance, a long walk down, on sometimes broken steps, there and back is maybe 4kms. During my visit in January 2014 I was surprised by the absence of vendors, also by the lack of other visitors. This is not on the tourist trail.At the end of your mini-trek you will seen a ~50 metre long line of rock carvings on your left. These depict scenes from every day life, in the good old days. The carvings are worn, but clearly discernable. The principal feature is a statue of the Hindu god Ganesh. If you wish, you can make (after buying from a little old lady nearby) an offering here.Near the entrance is a good, small restaurant, the Yeh Pulu Cafe. Owned and managed by an enterprising Balinese woman. Both Yeh Pulu and the restaurant are recommended.
