This temple was built in 1926, is the second most important temple complex of Bali, after the mother temple Besakih. “Ulun Danu” literally translates as “head of the lake”.

This was just so pretty, the flowers surrounding the edges, the temple itself, the grandeur of the lake and so privileged to watch the ceremonies take place too. Was well worth the drive to get here.

Getting to the lake from the Ubud area is about a two hour drive depending on traffic...so this is a trip you need to plan ahead. The grounds are quite large even though the temple tower you seen in all the photos is quite small....and you cannot get to it. The lake is high up in what was originally a... More

You need at least once to visit this place, very nice experience. I needed two hours driving from Airport, and very worth it. My parents and my kids were amazed. Gorgeous view and very fresh air.
