Pura Taman Ayun, Mengwi
The Pura Taman Ayun was an ancient Mengwi royal family's temple with an inner and an outer moat. It originally established in 1740, and restored in 1937. There are ancestral shrines of the former ruling Mengwi family and their dependants in the temple. There are also shrines that dedicated to particular mountains, to the sea and to agricultural deities.
Kori Agung is the main gate to the temple. Visible above the gateway is the image of the Hindu god Bhoma, the monster-like son of Durga and Shiva, whose fearful yet benevolent nature is intended to drive away nearby malevolent influences. There are carvings of other gods and godly seers at each side. Its doors are only open during ceremonies.
