  • Entrance fee was 20k per person when I went. Very quiet place. Serene. Not too many tourist come here so there are plenty of photo opportunities. Lots of areas to walk around and just enjoy the area.
  • It's a perfect example of Balinese architecture...main temple complex is not admissible to foreigners...but one can view the external beauty of the complex from outside..temple complex also boasts lotus ponds,parks,trees and many beautiful stone sculptures..a must visit in Bali.
  • Another cultural destination in Bali. It is favourite among domestic and also international tourist. It is a beatiful temple complex with beautiful pond.
  • Taman Ayun literally translates as ‘beautiful garden’ and is generally regarded as one of the most attractive temples of Bali. The Taman Ayun temple is situated in a beautiful park with trees and ponds, near the village of Mengwi in the south of Bali 
  • Pretty and serene - less tourists. Behind there's a really nice botanical gardens. The temple has a series of very high 'towers' dedicated to different deities - makes a very nice photo.
