The construction of the temple was done gradually, starting by doing a meditation to determine the location of Padmasana. The meditation was led by Maha Pendeta Ida Pedanda Gde Kemenuh on 8 March 2000. Then the process was continued by the construction of Padmasana, Bentar Temple and Bale Pegat on 4 June 2000. The construction still then continued by adding a few more facilities, such as Pelinggih Penglurah Ratu Gde Dalem Bumi, Pelinggih Pengapit Lawang, etc. This temple was finnaly inaugurated on June 2004, by Prof. Dr. H. Said Agil Husin Al Munawar, the former Minister of Religious Affairs of Indonesia.

Until today, Pura Agung Amerta Bhuana holds religious ceremonies routinely, such as Galungan, Nyepi, Hindus and other religious ceremonies.
