TAMAN AYUN ROYAL TEMPLE
We start our day at Taman Ayun, the Royal Temple of the Mengwi Dynasty. The temple was built by I Gusti Agung Anom, a founder of the Mengwi kingdom in 1634 and functioned as his summer palace. This centuries old temple is surrounded by a pool of water that shows the concept of a building designed to give the impression of an island. It is not a new concept. This was designed in the 17th century! The name means beautiful garden. The temple complex has three general areas; a garden which borders a river, a courtyard and a Bale which is used for religious ceremonies and dances. There is also a decorative fountain which provides a great photo opportunity. The temple features beautiful carvings and statues of nine Gods. There are twenty nine shrines which house the Hindu Gods and Goddesses.

ALAS KEDATON MONKEY FOREST
Now it is afternoon and a perfect time to visit the Monkey Forest at Alas Kedaton. The monkeys are very active in the morning hours and settle down in the afternoon. They are wild and roam freely on the grounds. There is also a cave with a very large population of bats. They sleep hanging upside down and although it is daytime they are active, moving around and changing sleeping positions.
SUNSET AT TANAH LOT TEMPLE
Sunset at Tanah Lot is an experience that is enjoyed by almost every visitor to Bali. This temple, Pura Pakendungan, was erected to honor the arrival of the Hindu priests to the island of Bali at this spot in the 16th century by the priest Danghyang Nirartha. The name is Tanah which means isle and Lot which means sea. It was erected on a large rock outcropping that is not accessible at high tide. It is used as the main Hindu Temple by the local people of Tabanan, the local regency, and is the sight of many local ceremonies. Sunset is a spectacular event that frames the temple in a surrounding of the blue Indian Ocean and a glowing backdrop. It is said to be guarded by holy sea snakes, which are available for viewing in a nearby cave on the beach.
The temple at sunset is one of the most famous photographed icons in Asia.
- Be sure and plan your tour. Bring shoes with arch support. Light sandals are not designed for walking on uneven ground. You may have slight hills or uneven steps to deal with. Some of the markets and villages are built on slopped land and good arch and ankle support will be very, very beneficial. Be sure and wear socks.
- Be sure and bring sunscreen or a hat and don’t forget your sunglasses. In many of the mountain villages, temples and attractions, you will be in the shade, so a light sweater or sweatshirt may come in handy.
- Many spots that you find yourself will have snacks and beverages, but a bottle of water and a small candy bar or dried fruit might come in handy.
- Have the correct film or memory chip for your cameras.
