Tabanan is a city in Bali and it is famously used for agricultural purposes to help meet the needs of Bali's food supply. It is also famous for its handicraft industry and also the many tourist hotspots that are scattered in here. Read on to find out some of the top things to do in Tabanan.


Ulun Danu Bratan Temple

This is one of the largest temples in Bali and also a famous tourist attraction. The name of this temple comes from Lake Beratan, as it stands on its shores. Located in the highlands of Bedugul, Ulun Danu Bratan Temple also carries archaeological value from where relics of historical objects have been found including a stone board and stone sarcophagus which has existed since the time of megalithic – both these artefacts are placed on the temple's terrace yard. It is indeed a splendid experience to visit this temple.


Butterfly Park

Tabanan Butterfly Park is a uniquely beautiful garden that is filled with butterflies of various colours. Located within a 34-minute driving distance from resorts such as Nirjhara via Jalan Batukaru, it is a tourist hotspot due to its status of being the biggest butterfly breeding park not only in Bali but also in Southeast Asia. It has even become a place of education and research as the butterflies that are usually seen only in pictures can be seen to the naked eye at this place.
