This place is quite interesting, it has a mix of many things. Religion+Nature+Relaxation... you will find: - sacred places for Hinduism, Buddhism and Muslim. - playgrounds for kids. - a mini display of some animals. - food stalls. - amazing natural spots to be contemplated. Either can be a 1.5 hour visit or a half day-full day visit, it all... More

Nice view, but long drive from Kuta. It is much cooler on the mountain~ many group tourists, so try to avoid if you are traveling by yourself or with a couple of people.

We enjoyed visiting this temple. Or I should rather write visiting the park, since we can only see the temples from outside. But still amazing to see ! The park around is so lively, people spend time there: kids have a (old) playground, you can try fishing, going for a boat tour or for a drink. We had a great... More

This is the place you must visit before getting out from Bali! Around 2HR from the center of Ubud, but thats not the problem because when you arrive at this temple, everything look fresh and relaxing with very wonderful environment and landmark in which you have to take a selfie and enjoy life at the inactive volcano's lake!

OK....so if you are in to peaceful meditative temple atmospheres DO NOT GO HERE! WOW...the crowds were immense and not a ounce of the normal temple atmosphere to be found! Sure, go....take some nice pics of the temple on the water, tick it off your list, but don't expect a life changing moment of clarity or anything! Except the one... More

My family and I visited Pura Ulun Danu at Beratan Lake in early April 2017. It is the temple featured on the (old) Rp 50,000 note and it was beautiful to see it in real life. The surrounding gardens are really well maintained and manicured, so it was a lovely environment from which to view the iconic temple. There are... More

Really enjoyed visiting here. Not too many tourists around either which was nice. Peaceful space and beautifully manicured gardens. Worth the visit.

You have to see this place, especially if you are a photographer. Hopefully you'll get to see a Hindu ceremony as we did. Relax in the garden area. Grab something to drink on a warm day. Sit by the Lake and just take it all in.

Absolutely beautiful if you go super early in the morning and watch the sun rise in utmost peace! The temple is usually not open yet but I was practically one of three people there and had the opportunity to take the most beautiful photos!
