Pura Ulun Danau Beratan is another of the nine guiding temples of Balinese Hindu faith, responsible for protecting the island. Sitting on the edge of Lake Beratan, one of the three large lakes in the Central Mountain district of Bali, the temple consists of five compounds and one stupa. In the wet season the temple appears to float on the water and photographs of the structure are often used to represent Bali.
Landscaped gardens and manicured lawns surround the temple and the onsite restaurant tempts many to spend several hours in the pleasant surroundings.
The lakeside venue is also a popular domestic tourist attraction, with a range of lakeside activities such as motorboats, pedal boats and traditional jukungs, as well as fishing, available. Rising popularity among visitors from the nation’s other islands probably accounts for the recent addition of a nearby mosque, which also provides a colourful architectural contrast to the Hindu temple structures.
