About this photo

Danau Bratan, or Lake Bratan, is an essential water source for the surrounding farmlands and rice fields in Bali, Indonesia. It is for this reason that the Balinese worship the goddess of the lake, Dewi Dana, at Pura Ulun Danu Bratan, a sacred site and the second most important irrigation temple here. The graceful 11-tiered pagoda appears to float upon the surface of the water. Explore Bali's temples with Insight Guides' Best of Bali trip
