Highlights & Attractions

The great Taman Ayun Temple is divided into four main sections. The first one is known as the “jaba”. This is the outer section of the temple. It has a single entrance which has a walkover bridge on the pond.

There is a small guardian shrine present in this section. There is also a communal gathering hall in this area known as “Wantilan”. Another eye-catching beauty of this section is a tall fountain that sprinkles water into different cardinal directions.

The second and third sections of the temple are slightly higher than the first one. Near the second gate of the section, there is a shelter known as Bale Pengubengan. The speciality of this area is the presence of the figures of the nine Hindu Gods that guards the nine points of the compass. This place is known as DEWATA NAWA SANGA.

In the east court, the Pura Dalem Bekak Temple is present. In the west court, there is an 8-metre high wooden bell tower known as Bale Kulkul. There are also two rectangular wooden bells hanging to the ceiling that makes it even more unique.

The fourth section the most sacred of them all. This section is known as UTAMA MANDALA. This section has many gates but usually, the only east gate remains open for the daily visitors. The central gate opens only during the ceremonies of the heirlooms.

The temple has three main grounds which depicts the different worlds. The lowest ground refers to the world of man, the middle ground refers to the Realm of the Gods and Deities and the topmost ground depicts the ultimate divine energy.

Looking into the facts about ‘Adhiparwa’, we get to know that the complex of the Taman Ayun Temple represents the Mount Mahameru. It is said that Mount Mahameru came out of the churning of the sea by Gods and Deities.

These vast ponds were ones the recreational areas for the royal families of the Mengwi. But presently the ponds are fenced and the entrance of the visitors is strictly prohibited to these areas.

The Taman Ayun temple anniversary coincides the anniversary of the cliff-perched Uluwatu Temple. It is celebrated on the 210 days of Balinese calendar. This day is known as ‘ Kliwon Medangsia’ Tuesday.

In the north of the temple, there is a bell tower and a lawn that presents a perfect site for the artists to trace the beauty of the temple and surrounding on the canvas.
