Taman Ayun Temple – the Beautiful Garden

The Taman Ayun temple is the mother temple of the Mengwi district, approximately 18 kilometres north west of Denpasar, and was originally built so that the local people didn’t have to travel all the way to Besakih temple to pay homage to their gods. Taman Ayun means literally “beautiful garden”. The temple is situated in a beautiful park with plants, trees and ponds, and the actual temple is surrounded by a moat, filled with lotus flowers. To enter the temple, you cross a bridge of this moat and once inside you just follow the paved foot paths. The complex is home to about 50 shrines with the iconic terraced roofs. Note that, while visiting the temple, you ought to cover your knees and shoulders – read more about temple etiquette here.
