Take the time and enjoy the coach trip from Kuta. Forget the razzle dazzle of the tourist hot spots, and go see what this island is really about. Take your camera, and millions of pics, as this is something worth remembering.

The temple located on lake Bratan surrounded by mountains. To reach it from Kuta 2 hours. The temperature in the mountains is below 5 degrees. Dress warmly.

The Lake Bratan Temple is a mixture of several different temples mostly Hindu with a Buddhist temple thrown in set in an absolutely amazing and very well kept garden setting. It is rather cool up there at around 21 - 22 degrees as it is in the mountains. which make an awesome back drop for photos. You can buy food... More

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
