Floating Ulun Danu Temple
Ulun Danu temple is located on a lake that fills the crater of ancient Mount. Bratan in Tabanan area, in the northwestern part of Bali. The weather is very cooling and refreshing, bringing the calmness of nature closer and closer to the mind of whoever is witnessing it.
This floating temple is dedicated to the goddess of serene lake Bratan, as a manifestation of Brahman as Wisnu, the preserver. The Balinese worship the goddess of the lake, Devi Danu at Pura Ulun Danu Temple, because the lake provides the water source for the surrounding farmlands and rice fields.
The temple is truly beautiful, with classical Hindu thatch-roofed meru (multiroofed shrines) reflected in the water and silhouetted against the often cloudy mountain backdrop - one of the most common photographic images of Bali.
