Reef Seen Divers' Resort

Discovering, diving & protecting Pemuteran's reefs since 1991


TAMAN PURA (Underwater Temple Garden)

A dream of Chris's since the early 90's he has finally been able to make it come true. An engineering feat, with over ten large stone statues resting on stone plinths and, a 4 metre high Balinese candi bentar gateway. It is found at a depth of 28 meters and incorporates a cleaning station with schooling baitfish.

The "garden" is covered in gorgonian fans and must be seen to be believed. A second stage of this Temple Garden has now been started on the reef flats above at a depth of around 15metres. On the last part of this dive along the reeftop, there are normally lots of weird and wonderful "critters" to be found along with a small bommie inhabited by thousands of small fish, sponges, crinoids etc, etc.
