The Floating Temple, Pura Ulan Danu Beratan in Balinese, is one of the iconic images of Bali. The temple sits on the western shore of Lake Bratan in the mountains near Bedugul, and its position in the lake can give the illusion of floating on the water. It takes a full day to get there as the temple is located around 57 km from Seminyak, making it ideal to combine with other attractions along the way.
Constructed in 1633, the temple is devoted to the goddess of the lake, Ida Batara Dewi Ulun Danu in Balinese. Located 1200m above sea level, it has a cooler tropical climate than the coastal areas.
