The Tenganan Village is one of the oldest Balinese Traditional located in Karangasem Regency. It’s a unique insight into a traditional local community, an example of Bali Aga Village cultures (Hindu Prehistoric) and different from any another countryside in Bali.
So we had been traveling around Bali now for a few weeks. Our good friend, Bawa, driving us around. It was then suggested. Did we want to visit another temple? We had seen so many at this point. But we thought. Why not, we love seeing the different temple designs and history behind them.
Pura Taman Ayun is a compound of Balinese temple and garden with water features. Pura Taman Ayun is in the Mengwi district in Badung Regency, in Bali. Pura Taman Ayun itself is on a large rectangle piece of land.
OMFG, yes I dropped the F-bomb. The Ulun Danu Temple was one of the most incredible temples we had visited. Not because of its beauty (although it was unique with the backdrop of the lake in the volcanic crater). But because I was an actual local for 5 minutes. More about that later on.
So we headed to Tanah Lot early. Like we were there by 9.00am!
It is certainly a must, the cost to enter was around 35,000rp per person. You didn’t need to have a sarong to visit here like so many other temples in Bali.
