Perched in Bali’s heart, Ulun Danu Beratan Temple sits on the watery apron of Lake Beratan, in Candikuning Village. It is a mixture of Hindu and Buddhist beliefs displayed in iconic Balinese temple architecture.
Think scaled monstrous serpents, scarlet red umbrellas, and holy water. Think an ancient banyan tree and swaying yellow rice stalks reaching for the heavenly gods.
There are five temple compounds and a Buddhist stupa that will help you get in touch with your own beliefs. Meander around the man-made visions of the gods such as Vishnu, Lakshmi, Ganesha, Tara, Rama, and Krishna dotted throughout the compound.
A local will be your spiritual guide, for this immersion in Ulun Danu Beratan life.
