Your first visit is to the Tabanan regency. A first stop is scheduled at the Batukaru temple, founded in the 11th century. This unique sacred mountain sanctuary and royal temple of the Tabanan dynasty is situated on the foot of Mt. Batukaru and was built to venerate deities of mountains and lakes.
Having enjoyed the views of Jatiluwih, you will have a lunch break at an Indonesian restaurant on the way up to your next stop, which will be the famous “Ulun Danu Bratan” water temple.
This temple lies on the western shore of Lake Bratan and is one of Bali’s
directional temples protecting Bali from evil spirits from the north-west.
The “Ulun Danu Bratan” water temple was built in 1633 by the Raja of Mengwi. The Balinese people rely on their rice harvest and the goddess of water and fertility, Dewi Danu, who is the deity honoured here.
After Lake Bratan, the tour continues with a visit to a nearby traditional
Balinese market where you can meander through the wares. You will
finish your day with a visit to the great royal temple of Pura Taman Ayun
in the town of Mengwi. Built in the 17th century, the structure served as the family temple of the Mengwi dynasty, whose kingdom survived until the late 1800s. The temple is famous for its exquisite wooden merus, or pagoda-like shrines.
