Pura Taman Ayun, Bali

With its multi-roofed meru shrines and pavilions, intricately carved wooden gates, ponds and grassy courtyards all surrounded by a moat, the 17th century Pura Taman Ayun is considered one of the most beautiful temples in Bali.


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.
