Approximately 6 Hours
Visit the former Royal Temple, Pura Taman Ayung, built in 1634 and arguably one of the most beautiful temples on the island. Pura Taman Ayung temple is famous for its exquisite shrines. Drive on to Alas Kedaton—one of Bali’s famed monkey forests. Its towering nutmeg trees are unique to this area and are sacred to the Balinese people. The forest is also home to some of Bali’s cheekiest inhabitants—macaque monkeys—whose antics will have you laughing in no time. Your last stop is at Tanah Lot Temple, a magnificent house of worship perched precariously on a huge rock resting just off of the coastline—perhaps the most photographed temple in all of Bali. Tanah Lot has been an important part of Balinese mythological history for centuries. At the base of the rocky island, poisonous sea snakes guard the temple from evil spirits and intruders.
