Beautiful Temple but it was very crowded. We visited in the afternoon and the place was very busy. I was still able to get some great photos but the distance travelled to visit this temple made my travel companions very tired and less tolerant of...More

I was kind of disappointed by this temple. It is certainly worthwhile visiting if you're in the close neighborhood, but don't spend a day trip on it. We had seen some amazing pictures of this temple beforehand. In reality, this is a tiny temple, whereas...More

Actually my favorite temple in Bali so far! I liked its colorfulness and its modern type. Liked its ambiance! There are activities you can do aside from taking pictures! Very interesting temple shrines. I liked it here very much, there’s a different feeling of involvement,...More

This is an active temple, so many locals and tourists come here so it can be very crowded. This is the best temple to visit with kids.

Beautiful temple on the water. Very unique spot in Bali- while there are many templates all over Bali, this one stood out to us as very different. The temple has 11 different layers that each represent an aspect of the earth to pray for: water,...More

This temple was very beautiful with lots of different sites to see within the grounds. It was very pretty and tranquil. Although there were lots of tourists, it didn’t feel too crowded. Our only complaint would be that the cafe/restaurant refused service due to being...More

Loves the architecture of the site, with the temple being on a lake with a wondrous backdrop of a mountain range. Comes in early to avoid the heavy tourist volume or late in the evening to enjoy the sunset.

I wish they would allow to make an entry to the temple. It is a floating temple on Bratan lake. Excellent bali architecture which is unique in nature will amaze you. At the same time it is a culturally very rich place - gives a...More

I wouldn’t hire a car. The roads are pretty choked and can be dangerous if you don’t know where you’re going. Easiest thing to do is hire a private taxi for the day. R100k/hour is the standard rate which you can arrange... More
