Pura Ulun Danu Bratan temple in Bali, Indonesia

Most people in Bali, Indonesia have traditionally followed Balinese Hinduism, a local variant of the Hinduism practiced in mainland Southeast Asia and South Asia. In 1633, they created a Hindu water temple, Pura Ulun Danu Bratan, on Lake Bratan in the mountainous northern region of the island. The temple, sometimes called simply Pura Bratan, is a shrine to the water goddess Dewi Danu. Locals have long had practical reasons to hold this water in high regard, since the mountain lake irrigates fields at lower elevations. Overlooking the temple from the slopes of nearby Tapak Hill is the 160-hectare Bali Botanic Garden, said to be the largest of its kind in Indonesia.
