Situated about 45 minutes from Denpasar Town, in Mengwi District, Taman Ayun Temple stands as a prime destination on the Tanah Lot Tour. Adorned with intricate Balinese architectural details, this unique temple boasts up to 10 towering storeys. Built amidst expansive fish ponds, it appears as if it's floating, offering visitors an ethereal experience. Its historical significance is profound, leading the Bali regional government to recommend its inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2002. As a Mother Temple for Mengwi Kingdom, Taman Ayun was erected in 1634 AD by Mengwi King, I Gusti Agung Putu, as a homage to his forefathers, situated north of the Mengwi village.
The second highlight of the Tanah Lot Tour is the enchanting Alas Kedaton Temple, nestled within a lush 6-7ha forest amid the rice fields of Tabanan regency in West Bali. The entire region, inclusive of the temple, forest, and accompanying facilities, spans approximately 12 ha. This serene sanctuary, with its verdant surroundings, exudes a sense of calm and sanctity. Visitors flock to Alas Kedaton not just for its spiritual allure but also to witness the playful antics of the resident monkeys. The temple's inner courtyard, representing a sacred space, intriguingly sits at a level lower than its middle yard, enhancing its distinct appeal.
Concluding the Tanah Lot Tour is the awe-inspiring Tanah Lot Temple, a revered Balinese Hindu shrine perched on a rocky island amidst the vast sea. Especially during sunset, the temple offers unparalleled views, with the horizon painting a mesmerizing canvas of colors. At high tide, the temple appears to drift as it becomes enveloped by the surrounding seawater. The name "Tanah Lot" translates to a small island on the sea, aptly describing its unique setting. Historically significant, this site traces back to the Megalithic period and is celebrated today as a prime location to witness Bali's iconic sea-facing sunset.
