Pura Taman Ayun

Pura Taman Ayun translates to the ‘temple with a beautiful garden’ and is considered to be one of the island’s most beautiful and intricate temples.

The temple is nestled in a verdant park teeming with flora and fauna and lies in proximity to Mengwi Village in the southern part of the island. It is about 8kms from the tourist town of Ubud, and 16kms from Denpasar.

Pura Taman Ayun Temple Bali Entrance Fee & Dress Code

The temple was constructed in 1634, a project that was overseen by I Gusti Agung Putu, the then-Raja of Mengwi. The temple underwent major restorations in 1937 and still stands as an important temple today.

It is not uncommon to hear the locals referring to the temple as the ‘Pura Kawiten’ and represents a place of honour for the ancestors of the Raja Kingdom in Mengwi.

Pura Taman Ayun is surrounded by canals which means that the only way to access the temple is through a bridge that leads to the split gate, locally known as candi bentar. The splendid gate leads to the first courtyard, which is the most outer section of the temple.

This courtyard then leads to a pond and majestic nine-jetted water fountain before opening up to the second gate. This second courtyard is a bit more elevated and it leads to the third and the most sacred courtyard that is home to the holiest shrines.

The inner courtyard hosts festivals during the celebration of the temple’s inauguration which happens after every 210 days and last for a couple of days.

The entrance fee is around 20,000 IDR and visitors must ensure that they wear a sarong to cover knees and ankles. Also make sure that shoulders and midriffs are covered.
