Our Bali trip is all about spa, food and sight seeing but not so much of sun and surf. Throughout the four days trip, we have visited quite a handful of temples and the Pura Taman Ayun (“Garden Temple in the Water”) is one of them.

Pura Taman Ayun was the royal temple of I Gusti Agung Anom, the founder of the Mengwi kingdom. Originally dating from 1634, it was restored and enlarged in 1937. Entrance fee is IDR3000  (RM1) per person. IMG_0833
It was drizzling by the time we got there. See how the poor cat seek shelter from the cold rain.

The pouring rain did not dampen our spirits at all.

KampungBoy wanted to capture the sorrowful and melancholic feel of the rain and the ancient temple. Gung ho!

and I shall be the dedicated umbrella holder.
