Yeh Pulu is a small hermitage dating back to the 14th century. Although being very close to the famous Goa Gajah, this site receives only a few tourists. A short walk from the ticket office through rice-fields leads to a unique frieze carved into a cliff face. It is of two metres high and twenty-five metres in length. The relief depicts everyday life in Bali with various figures walking, playing with animals and hunting scenes. Compared to other Balinese carvings, figures of Yeh Pulu frieze are much more natural and vivid.
