This is not one of the "must see" temples (Uluwatu, Tana Lot, Tirta Empul, Gunung Kawi, Pura Ulun Danu Bratan) but a good example of a large standard temple complex. NOTE - don't confuse this with Pura Ulun Danu Bratan which is on the lake...More

This is our itinerary in north bali in August. Really spiritual place and one of the biggest temples in Bali. The temple is still very well preserved. The temple is located near the lake and volcano mountain, so it has a really amazing panoramic view.
