Taman Ayun meaning beautiful garden and beautiful garden it is. Taman Ayun has beautiful courtyards that aparently contains the shrines both of the royal family ancestral shrines and shrines to the major deities and was also the main temple for the ancient kingdom of Mengwi. I guess if you coming back from Lake Bratan its worth the stop.
I loved this places. I guess we took a long time to get here as we had to drive through the narrow winding roads to get to the top here to Lake Bratan. The weather was nice and cool and the view was excellent as the lake is srrounded by inactive volcanoes with this low lying clouds. Lake Bratan has these beautiful Hindu temples along the water. They have a very beautiful botanical garden and well here you also have the options of taking a boat ride and or paragliding and so forth on the lake. Well the way up here you have restaurants and the view of the surroundings is beautiful as you have those rices fields going down the mountains.
Located at Gianyar Region, Pura Tirta Empul is worth a visit, A Bali's Hindu Temple just side by side with Istana Tampak Siring.
Generally Bali is a very hot climate, but there is one place with as an exception, KINTAMANI is a cool place in Bali. Kintamani is also known for its big Hindu's temple in the mountain area
