“Better with a guide !”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

This temple is nice to have a look at but we were fortunate enough to have a driver who knew about the history of the temple and the area ! What would have been a 15 minutes stroll around the temple turned into a 45 minutes description of the Balinese history and the importance of the religious symbols in its culture .
There are sometimes some guides offering their services at the entrance of the area ; this is one occasion when it would be worth it !

“Worth watching”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

This a beautiful temple and it is seriously good. But you have go early before 11AM to avoid HOT SUN draining you.
There are many tall temple like structures, well maintaned and must include in your trip.

Reviewed 13 May 2014

Make a short visit there, it won't take long but still beautiful to see. Not one of the best on Bali though!

“Wonderful temple (from outside look)”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

It's looked wonderful from outside since we were not allowed to go inside. They provide some nice angle for you to take a photo with all those temples, though.The temple itself is not very big. The area to walk is quite small, too. If you ask me to visit once more time, I would say no, since I think I get to see all of them already.

“Avg viewing”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

It's a nice temple but you can't actually go into the temple, just look from outside the compound. I would rate Gunung Kawi more worth the visit then Taman Ayun, only worth the visit if you it's along the way.
