Ulun Danu Beratan Temple

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Admission Fee: 50'000IDR (fun fact: this temple features on the 50K note) ~ though to be honest, I'm still not sure if the ticket was really necessary 😅 Required time: 1 hour Iconic floating temple dedicated to the worship of the Hindu trinity and water-goddess Dewi Danu. Located at 1200m in the mountains near Bedugul, thin mist often enshrouds the temple, adding to its mystique. The most famous part of the temple is definitely the small island with its tiered meru. Everybody was snapping away furiously trying to get that perfect shot of themselves for the gram, hardly even glancing at the details of the unique architecture or the variety of iris flowers in the manicured garden. I almost felt awkward sneaking past trying to just take in the beauty of the shrines and the oddity of some of the decor (Spongebob, what happened to you!). 👍 Take a sunrise ride across the lake for truly breathtaking views. To best appreciate the floating quality of the temple, it is recommended to visit when the lake's level rises. 👍 This lake area is located in the mountains, so the temperatures are considerably lower than in other parts of Bali (it was around 15°C during my last visit!), so dress accordingly to avoid freezing to death!
