Ulun danu temple
Pura Ulun Danu Beratan, or Pura Bratan, is a major Shaivita water temple on Bali,The temple complex is located on the shores of Lake Beratan in the mountains near Brdugul. Water temples serve the entire region in the outflow area; downstream there are many smaller water temples that are specific to each irrigation association (subak)
Built in 1633, this temple is used for offerings ceremony to the Balinese water, lake and river goddess Dewi Danu due to the importance of Lake Bratan as a main source of irrigation in central Bali. The 11-storey pelinggih meru in the complex is dedicated to Shiva and his consort Parvathi Budda’s statue is also enshrined in this temple. This temple is also called as Bali temple on the lake because it looks like it is floating when the Bratan river water rises.
