  • Bali-many temples. Not all of them are remembered. Taman Ayun Temple has its individual "person." Beautiful, majestic structure. Beautiful garden around. The calming atmosphere. The temple is under the protection of UNESCO.

  • Good place... but it was closed when i came there at 17:00... how awful i am. But it's been so beautiful from out there... it's good temple, and has a good history!
  • Pura Taman Ayun magnificent temple surrounded by lake, The Taman Ayun “beautiful garden” gives serenity and tranquillity for tourists." Pura Taman Ayun, The temples in Bali are usually crowded since there are group of tourist or backpackers who are exploring the different kinds of temples. If you want to take a break and find tranquillity amidst the hordes of people, Taman Ayun is the ideal place.
  • More of a market than a temple. It was worth stopping on our way to Seminak from Munduk for a bite to eat and a photo.
  • Neatly maintained temple grounds with a lot of ancient trees. The temple itself is inaccessible to tourists but you can walk around the grounds, by the surrounding moat. Don't miss the huge traditional figurine of Dewi Sri (the goddess of rice) sitting in a pavilion near the toilets.
  • Ok place, Not that much special, just an ancient temple, during my visit it was too hot,the feel was like that the heat were coming from the ground. Entrance fee needed, makes me wonder why was that for?
