Everything smelled of Atlantis certainly be an attraction. Underwater temple in Pemuteran, Bali for example, the year 2010 was a commotion because it referred to as a kingdom of underwater heritage. Travelers call Pura Taman.

Several years ago, the underwater temple photo circulating in the virtual world. The temple, which is located in the Gulf of Pemuteran, Buleleng, which is north of Bali, was called as a relic of Atlantis. But doubts arise when a temple made of stone that looked intact, not corroded seawater.

Apparently, the temple was deliberately sunk by a group of environmental activists as conservation efforts. Starting in 2000, a variety of art objects were drowned in the bay.

The location name is Pura Taman. Dive here, you will find the temple complete with figurines such as Buddha and Ganesha. All artwork is purchased directly from local artisans.

The BBC website says the project involves several hotel owners, fishermen, dive agency services, scientists, and environmental conservationist. In addition to conservation goals, this project also has economic value and tourism.

You can visited the temples underwater dives through the services of agents scattered in Buleleng. Now, the art objects were successfully covered by colorful coral. Moreover, local people brought the concept of Bio Rock which could create new coral in a way that is completely different.

"We use electric current to accelerate the growth of coral reefs," project manager Bio Rock, Komang Astika explained.

Metal frame sunk into the seabed. Not only ignored, but also electricity for 6-10 volt. Electricity is fed continuously to the coral reefs are considered 'adult'. This method can turn on the reef 2-6 times faster than usual.

Bio Rock project is already underway in Pemuteran village for 14 years. Currently, there are 90 skeletons were covered with healthy coral reefs in the waters of Pemuteran Bay. Pura Taman together, the project Bio Rock became the highlight of the divers in the Gulf of Pemuteran.

You can contact the dive operator to dive into the Pura Taman. You will be taken to a depth of 5-30 meters, with visibility of between 5-20 meters.

Pura Taman although not project a relatively new, but the name is still common among tourists. In fact, Pura Taman in the Top 10 Sights Underwater in the book "Lonely Planet: 1000 Ultimate Sights".
