Ulun Danu Temple at Beratan is the most photographed temple on the island and is one of the iconic images of Bali. The temple sits on the western shore of Lake Beratan therefore giving the illusion of floating on the water. Built in 1633, the temple is devoted to Dewi Danu, goddess of the lake.
In the other side, Ulun Danu is one of the beautiful place to watch the sunrise in Bali. It feels utterly surreal seeing the temple emerging from the morning mist, with the glistening quiet lake and lush green mountains towering on the background. In addition, hiring a paddle boat is also a good option to take in all the dreamlike landscape. It is such a beautiful temple in a truly stunning setting.
