All reviews balinese architecture low wall entrance fee cock fighting worth a visit tanah lot unesco site beautiful landscape peaceful place walk around nice walk take pictures day tour rice moat tower meru
The temple is in the Ubud region on Bali. It features a nice set of balinese style temples. It is an unesco heritage site and allows you to make amazing photos. It also
Has a nice palace garden to walk around.
Pura Taman Ayun is one of the many temples in Bali worth visiting. Nestled in Mengwi, an area in central Bali, it is very calm and peaceful and not overfilled with tourists as against Tanah Lot.
As in most of the Balinese temples, one cannot...More
Our small tour group visited this beautiful temple complex that dates back to 1627. The complex is surrounded by an impressive moat. Particularly striking are tall pagodas with odd-numbered tiers of symbolic significance (3=underground, earth, sky; 5= five senses; 7 = days of the week;...More
Of course, like many of us, I have seen the Taman Ayun temple in photos, so I already have an idea of how the place looks. But, when we went there, I was still awed by its beauty. The place is quiet and clean.
My family and I booked an excursion tour to Pura Taman Ayun Temple. We were picked up at our hotel and enjoyed the scenic drive from Kuta. We took plenty of photos of the magnificent temple. No one is allowed in the main temple area...More
That’s what it literally means and yes that’s what it is. The complex encompasses beautiful garden and amazing landscaping all around the temple. The place even has a beautiful fish ponds along with lovely flowers. There is a small entry fee to get inside. The...More
This place is very beautiful and quiet. You need a sarong, but you get one with the ticket of 20.000 rupiah.
You can have a look into the big tempel from the side. There is a sign, which show you where to go.

We visited this temple complex - the Royal Temple- in February 2018. Visitors walk thru 2 inner courts on a wide paved path in the midst of a lawn area. This path leads to the temple walls that surround the buildings inside the temple. Again there is a paved walkway all around these walls. The area probably covers 2 blocks by 1 block. The wall is low - perhaps 4 feet - so visitors can look over it. Good pictures of all the structures inside the walls can be taken from this walkway. There was no activity within the walls when we visited. So the temple itself is not accessible to tourists for walking through - just for looking at from a distance, but the 2 inner courts and a model rooster fighting arena are open for walking through. If you would like more details about this temple, you might find my review of it helpful.

Hi! I will be four days in Bali, arriving on May 23 at 23:40 from Singapur and leaving on May 27 at 23:50 to Phuket (We are planning to stay on Phi Phi Islands).

In the main Island I would like to visit the rice...More

Yes you can visit Ulun Danau Beratan Temple, Taman Ayun Temple, Tegalalang and Besakih Temple in one day, but I would reconsider visiting Besakih Temple since it isn't all that impressive unless there is an event happening and even then people have said iut's difficult to enter. You might also want to add Tanah Lot Temple as a replacement. The price commonly paid by visitors is Rp500k to 600k per day all inclusive and usually people give around Rp20k for the driver to get lunch and a tip...More
Garuda Wisnu Kencana & Taman Ayun Temple (3 Replies)
Hi forumers, Anyone can tell me if Garuda Wisnu Kencana is worth visiting? What can we see there? I'll be visiting Bali in Sept, and the package that i'd be taking includes Garuda Wisnu Kencana in it, and I'm not sure whether it is a place worth going.... Another place is Taman Ayun Temple. I saw a lot of packages that include this place as their destination. So was wondering what can we see there.. oh wat about Goa Gajah? Is it a nice place?? Thanks alot and would appreciate if...More

Jaye, GWK is worth a visit - take the time and walk around, beside the 40m jade statue that was brought across from Java on barges,the 'cows' donated by the foreign countries after the bombing, you also get a great perspective of kuta beach and how close it actually is to Sanur, the 'columns' are actually the 'left-overs' from the limestone mountain/hill that was originally there, and with the 'in-betweens' carved out, it is quite a work, when you imagine what was there before. They often...More
Best base for day trips (2 Replies)
Hello Sorry if that question has already been asked, but I haven't seen something like that. The question is: where would it be more comfortable to start my day trips from? I have two full day trips planned - one to Pura Goa Lawah, Besakih, and the things around Ubud - Tirta Empul, Gunung Kawi, Goa Gajah. The other - to Taman Ayun Temple, Ulun Danu Bratan Temple and Danau Tamblingan area and maybe GitGit or Sekupmul Waterfall, time permitting. I thought Ubud would be best, as it is...More

Ubud is the better base in both cases in terms of distance and traffic. But do read the reviews of Besakih before you plan a trip there.
