Taman Ayun, an ancient temple is a must visit site in Bali. You would get a bonus that this great ancient temple is surrounded by extremely well maintained Garden. There are plenty of trees and flowers in garden. Great statues and typical Bali temple architecture. Like all Temples in Bali, the worship area is restricted. There is plenty of walking to be done to cover the whole temple and garden area. There is a beautiful water front inside the temple complex.
Taman = Garden Ayun = Beautiful The name reflects the beauty of this place. The main temple area is like other temples of Bali but surrounding garden is very beautiful. A good place to spend time in the nature.
