Pura Taman Ayun

Spectacular, this temple built in the 1600’s by the King of Mengwi for his family, remained the central temple for the Mengwi Kingdom until the 1800’s when it was conquered by the neighboring kingdoms of Tabanan and Bandung.  This Aw inspiring temple is surrounded by a moat that from a distance makes it appear to be floating. Taman Ayun means beautiful garden, and so it is. This is well worth the ride off the beaten path. Go west my friends!
