Taman Ayun literally translates as Beautiful Garden and is regarded as one of the most attractive temples in Bali. It was built in 1634 by the King of Mengwi, I Gusti Agung Putu. The temple is bordered by wide canals which irrigate the fields around the site. The temple is dedicated to the ancestor of the Mengwi Dynasty and other important Gods. Taman Ayun Temple is regarded as the “mother temple” for Mengwi Kingdom.
We need to wear Balinese sarongs before entering the temple land and also pay an entrance ticket of IDR 15,000 / person. The temple is located right next to the main road, making it easily accessible. Parts in the temple are considered sacred, so only those who come to bring offerings and pray. But we can explore around the temple and see all cultural activities from the side. We recommend visiting Taman Ayun at around 9 am when it is less touristy so you can feel the serenity and tranquility in this beautifully designed temple with extraordinary architecture.
