    The first part of our tour was to stop at Pura Taman Ayun temple. I was very impressed . Taman Ayun refers to a huge open space (ayun) representing a garden (taman). It is surrounded by a moat with lotuses.
    It is one of the group of state temples that is supported by state funding.
    If you can visit on its odalan (birthday ) festival, it is a spectacular sight.

    The temple was built by I Gusti Agung Anom, a founder of the Mengwi kingdom in 1934, and were skilfully and renovated in later years, giving its present appearance which tourists find so attractive and interesting.
    The name itself means beautiful garden.
    It is built on a high tableland which is surrounded by ponds.
    This gives the effect from afar that the temple is floating on water.

    What else to do but visit the famous Royal Temple of Pura Taman Ayun. the royal temple was built by the King Gusti Agung Putu of the Mengwi Balinese Dynasty in 1634 as a royal water temple to honor the local Hindu Gods and Deities. the temple grounds and garden is huge as a man made lake surrounds the Royal Temple and you can enter the rectangular walkway that surrounds the temple complex but entrance inside the enclosed by wall part if forbidden but you can take pictures of it from th periphery.

    at the gardens outside is a large structure that shows traditional balinese cockfighting.

    Admission price for tourists is 20,000 rupiah and is open from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm everyday except on religious occasions.
