4.2/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web
See an ancient Hindu temple at Ulun Danu Bratan 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. Ulun Danu Bratan Temple is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Tabanan Edition.

  • Great place in the mountains, at the Lake! A bit cool! But what panorama! Magnificent temple, but as all over Bali, mass tourism! But must see!

  • Beautiful temples on this site. Beautiful views of the Lake. Very nice quiet atmosphere. Quite touristy anyway. It is not very original nor very adventure. A little too "guided" to our liking.

  • Pura Ulun Danu Bratan is the most of the visitors admired the lovely promenade because of its well organised and quiet surroundings. Pura Ulun Danu Bratan temple in Indonesia was known as Balinese Hindu Temple that sometimes they called it Bali temple on the water or Bali temple on the lake.
  • It is a beautiful pura next to Bedugul lake in Badung. It is very lovely place.
  • The temple isn't the most wonderful thing in Bali people make out to be. It's rather small and nondescript, however the compound is well laid out and very neat. We enjoyed a beautiful traditional dance performance here for free !
  • Straddling two islets in the Bratan crater lake and seeming to float on water, Pura Ulun Danu Bratan represents quintessential Bali, with its meru roofs reflecting in the water against a backdrop of misty mountains. This little temple is dedicated to the water goddess Dewi Danu, and people come from villages all over the region to pray for successful irrigation.
  • Pura ini selain untuk tempat ibadah bagi penganutnya, kita juga bs menikmati indahnya pemandangan di sekitar pura ini. Pura ini pula yg menjadi gambar di uang Rupiah pecahan 50 ribu. Sangat indah untuk diabadikan di sebuah foto
