The image shows the statue of Vishnu mounted on the corner of a temple in the Taman Ayun Temple complex in Bali, Indonesia. This temple was built by the Raja of Mengwi in 1634 and dedicated to avatars of Vishnu. The architecture is a blend of Cambodian and Bali styles. Unlike the other temples of Bali, this temple has a wide prakara (compound surrounding the temple) and a moat.

Because it is located in the Mengwi district of Bali, Taman Ayun is also known as the Mengwi Temple.
