Introducing Pura Taman Ayun, Bali

The temple was built in 1634 by the Raja of Mengwi, I Gusti Agung Putu, and was the main temple of the Mengwi kingdom until 1891. It was renovated in 1937.

Stroll across a bridge and through a richly ornamented gate and into the outer courtyard of the temple, then follow a paved walkway past a square pond with a fountain at its centre to a stunning collection of 50 shrines and pavilions that sit among the well-tended grounds.

Pura Taman Ayun is located in a beautiful park near the village of Mengwi in the south of Bali, around 8km southwest of Ubud and 18km from Denpasar.
