Bedugul Temple is a sacred Hindu temple set on Lake Beratan in the Candi Kuning countryside. Only about 50 km north of Denpasar, the four-temple complex was built in the 17th century and boasts the intricate detailing that is reserved only for the most important Balinese temples and sacred places. The four complexes are devoted to the worship of the God Siwa, the God Bhatara Hyang Danawa, the God Brahma and the Goddess Dewi Danu.
Enjoy the chilly mountain air as you stand surrounded by the magnificent mountain ranges that make up Bali’s northern region. The reflections in the mirror-like surface of the lake that surrounds the temple’s base create the illusion that it is floating on the water yielding stunning photos of one of Bali’s most sacred and popular destinations.
