Once upon a time it was located at the foot of Mount Batur, but after the eruption of 1917 , the temple had to be rebuilt at this location, 900 meters above sea level. It is dedicated to the Goddess of the Lake, Dewi Danu. This isn’t just one temple thought. It’s a complex of nine different temples that have over two hundred shrines. As such, this is considered to be the second most important temple area on the entire island. The highlight temples are:
- Pura Penataran Agung Batur, which is the main temple with five courtyards.
- Penataran Pura Jati Batur: linked to the temple at the lake shore.
- Tirta Bungkah: linked to the temple at the hot springs.
- Taman Sari and Tirta Mas Mampeh, linked to agriculture.
- Sampian Wangi, related to various handicrafts.
- Gunarali, where children pray for achievements and talents.
- Padang Sila, 45 shrines for the pantheon of deities of the lake temple.
- Tuluk Biyu, a temple relocated from Mount Abang.

Pura Ulun Danu Batur Reviews & Ratings
One of the biggest temples in Bali. Next to mount Batur. Good recreation spot, remember to wear a sarong. Amd do not enter without a guide. Respect the local culture. The road need to be fix. And the area around to be cleaned with a good parking management.
One of the lake Hindu temple located between the volcanic mountain is dedicated to God of Danu(Dewi Danu). There's so beautiful iconic and scenery in Bali
I went there for the first time last week. The place mesmerized me so much. There had been a big ceremony but by the time I went there, the ceremony had been finished. I managed to see the decoration for the ceremony. There was two big statues (i dont know how to say it right), a symbol of Lord Ganesha and a Goddess ( i believe it is Goddess Sri). The statue were made of various kinds of fruits and veggies, as well as spices. I noticed different kind of grains, garlic, bamboo leaves, and many more. Here i attached a photo of my and my friend with the statues at the background.
Awful... very touristic and too many people - minimum two-dozen busses and we visited the temple at a very rainy day. There is nearly no spiritual atmosphere left, but therefore a playground, a spongebob figure (and other figures which as nothing to do with Hinduism and the spirituality of a temple) and the possibility of a speedboat ride for 150k. It is also very expensive: 50k for the entrance, 5k for parking (car), 10k for a rented umbrella and 2k for the toilets... There are so many beautiful temple to visit in Bali, but this one is not worth it.
Nice place way from mountain...Love the way to ride... And place is peaceful to sit and view.. 😊👍
