Ulun Danu Beratan Temple

Type of place
Lake Bratan, situated at an altitude of 1,200 meters by Mount Tapak, is one of the most beautiful places in Bali, formed by the eruption of Mount Batur. It is known as the Lake of the Holy Mountain, and there is a belief that bathing in its waters grants youth and longevity. On the shore of the lake stands the Ulun Danu Temple, built in 1663 in honor of the water goddess Devi Danu, which is a popular place of worship among locals and tourists. The entrance fee is 70,000 rupiahs for adults.
The temple's multi-tiered pagodas, reflecting the status of the deities, along with the Ulun Danu Temple, serve not only as a place for prayers for fertility but also as an important spiritual center of the island, accessible to all regardless of clan affiliation. Lake Bratan, playing a key role in supplying the island with fresh water, and the temple on its shore represent a combination of natural beauty and spiritual heritage, attracting visitors with its unique charm and deep traditions.
