Ulong Dan Baltan on Bali – Temple on Water
On the island of Bali a lot of magical places, where you want to go back and again. Some of them are planted with a special atmosphere, others attract an unusual location in a picturesque area. Along with the Temple of Uluvatu, I like the Plant Church. In the highlands, not so hot, like on the coast, literally at every step are sold to strawberries, and panoramas on lakes and volcano fascinating. I will tell you about Lake Bratan (Beratan Lake) and the Temple of Ulong Danu (Pura Ulun Danu Beratan).
Temple Ulong Dan on Lake Bathan – one of the iconic places on Bali. His image you will see on bill of 500,000 rupees. The temple was built in 1633 and is dedicated to the goddess of Lake Danu. In her honor, the temple and Lake Batur (Pura Ulun Danu Batur) was built, which is also beautiful, however, not so picturesque, like on Lake Bathan.
Temple Ulong Dan Bathan stands right on the shore of the lake, which creates the illusion of the floating sanctuary, surrounded by water from all sides. The lake is framed by the mountains for which clouds are engaged. Types are just amazing.

Near the temple spread a small park, where it is nice to walk even on the most sunny day. Lake Bratan is located at an altitude of more than 1000 meters above sea level, in the morning and evenings here is pretty cool. Capture an umbrella to the rain case, weather in the mountains is unpredictable.
In the park built sculptures of different animals, trees and flowering shrubs grow. The territory is forbidden to bring drinks and arrange picnics here. Local entrepreneurs organized a micro-zoo, where you can take a picture with some birds: Owls, parrots and others.
For Balinese lake bro not only the place of worship. Here come on a photo session of newlyweds. And sometimes with permission satisfied private solemn events. On the lake, you can rent a water bike or hire a boatman for a trip around. And best sit on the shore of the lake, admiring the picturesque landscapes.
