Pura Ulun Danu Batur, Bali

Explore Bali's most important temple after Pura Besakih. The temple (also known as Pura Ulun Danu, Pura Batur or Pura Bat) is dedicated to the goddess of the lake, Ida Bhatari Dewi Danu.

The temple was originally constructed on the edge of the caldera at the foot of Mt Batur, an active volcano. A violent eruption in 1926 destroyed both the village and most of the temple – the 11-tiered meru dedicated to Dewi Danu survived.

The village and temple were later reconstructed at the highest and oldest rim on the caldera.

Visit the nine different temples and some of the 285 shrines and pavilions that are dedicated to the gods and goddesses of water, agriculture, holy springs and art, among other deities.

Don’t miss the principal temple of Penataran Agung Batur: its most dominant shrines include the 11-tiered meru, situated in the inner and most sacred courtyard, and the three 9-tiered merus dedicated to Mount Batur, Mount Abang and Ida Batara Dalem Waturenggong, the god king of the Gelgel dynasty who ruled from 1460 to 1550.
