Pura Taman Ayun

Pura Taman Ayun

One of the most attractive temples in Bali, Pura Taman Ayun is known for the clearwater moat that surrounds its entire complex. Located in the serene village of Mengwi, Pura Taman Ayun was a sacred temple of the Mengwi kingdom that is still heavily protected and preserved by the local villagers until today. The temple’s subak – a local irrigation system – is one of the few local sites that were recognised by UNESCO in 2012 and its proximity to the city centre – only 45 mins away – makes it a place worth going!
