Ulun Danu Bratan Temple, Tabanan

(2,200+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • It is a must visit place if you love nature. The temple is at hilly altitude so the temperature was very low here in the evening. The huge lake adds to the beauty of the temple. There are also strawbe...  more »
  • We visited early (9am) before the tour buses arrived which was a good idea. There were only about 10 people walking around so it was easy to get some good photos. The temple was a little smaller than ...  more »

  • Amazing landscape and nature gifts vs amazing retarded and savaged people. While we were walking through the beautiful park, we stumble upon some umbrellas under which we found these chained owls. Tourists were supposed to take photos with the owls and pay money for this. At sudden moves, they were getting scared and fly in all directions but still held by the chain, so they couldn't fly more than few meters. I barely managed to take a photo and one dude got enraged and almost attacked us because of it.
  • Beautiful place... Cool temperature and nice garden to walk through...50,000 entrance fee well worth the admission for a nice stroll... Restaurant inside is very cheap and good serving size... Wish I can live here...😍
  • The scenery is amazing. In order to reach this place is not easy, especially from the south Bali area. But, after you arriving there, you must be amused.
  • Astonishingly beautiful temple. On of my personal Top 3 ( Ulun Danu, Uluwatu, Tanah Lot).
  • One of the major attraction in Bali. Lots of tourists, Great natural view and famous temple on the water. We loved the place and it's a perfect spot for some nice photo memories.
