Ulun Danu Beratan Temple

Drop into the Ulun Danu Beratan Temple for that typical Balinese magic you would expect to find.

This is very attractive and many love to take pictures here and soak up the pretty views. There are also loads to do, such as go on boat rides, visit the lush gardens and see fascinating shrines.

Besakih Temple

Known as "Mother Temple", the Besakih Temple holds several shrines at its site in the East of Bali. These shrines belong to many different Balinese clans and lie in the large expanse of the temple upon the slopes of Mount Agung which stands at a height of 1000 metres above the sea level.
