Danau Bratan (Lake Bratan)

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Koentje3000 on February 17, 2006

On the road between Denpasar (65km) and Singaraja (20km), Danau Bratan is a gorgeous lake situated in the highlands of central Bali. It fills an extinguished crater of an ancient volcano and sits at over 1,200m above sea level, making it much cooler than the beach resorts or other places on the island. There is a beautiful 17th-century temple right at the lakeside, Pura Ulun Danau Bratan, devoted to the goddess of the lake. She is worshipped for her fertility by the local population. There are a few animals kept at the temple site, like a lizard and a toucan, that are worshipped as well. They are quite tame, so you can take a picture next to them if you want to.
