2013 May: Indonesia: Bali: Pura Taman Ayun

Last destination we have for the day is Pura Taman Ayun.  Too bad that the temple ground is actually not open to the public.  There are only high platforms where the tourists can see the featured structure inside the gates.

Pura Taman Ayun (Mengwi Water Temple) - This very pleasing temple was built in 1634 by the King of Mengwi as his family temple. The terraced courtyards of the temple are set in very well maintained grounds, surrounded by man-made waterways and entered over a bridge. Mengwi is about 8km east from the town of Tabanan.
