Ulun Danu Beratan Temple, Tabanan

4.3
See an ancient Hindu temple at Ulun Danu Beratan Temple. Built in 1663 on the shores of Lake Bratan with manmade islands stretching out into the lake, the water temple cuts a figure against the surrounding mountainous landscape and hallowed waters. Admire the delicate interiors of the temple buildings, and place an offering to the Balinese water, lake, and river goddess Dewi Danu, who is particularly esteemed here because of the importance of Lake Bratan as a source of irrigation in the area. Before you leave, take time to appreciate the fertility and natural abundance of the area by having a freshly cooked local meal at the on-site restaurant. Put Ulun Danu Beratan Temple and other Tabanan attractions into our Tabanan road trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Before visiting, I would expect the temple to be as spectacular as what is shown on the Internet. Unfortunately, it isn't; the water level is low and hence, it lacks the 'floating' effect. Although the view is nice and the weather is cooling, like what others mentioned, it isn't worth the long drive (about 2 hours from Seminyak). I spent about 20 minutes here, therefore, would recommend one to come here only if you plan to visit the other attractions along the way.
  • This temple is by the lake which has very nice views. The temple is very big so the entire visit may take about 45 min to 1.5 h depending on your travel group. It can be quite crowded, because its one of the iconic temples in Bali.
