one of the most beautiful and sacred temples here in Bali, is Pura Ulun Danu at Lake Batur. this beautiful temple gently nestled on the shores of the lake, cannot be reached under normal circumstances. a bridge is only erected when there is a ceremony at the temple. otherwise it looks like it is serenely docked just out of reach, away from the trampling feet of the many visitors that make their way through here, both of the domestic and international variety.
for me, it is certainly one of the prettiest temples...with the stormy mountains behind, the beautiful gardens in the immediate surroundings, full of flowers and trees and the lulling lapping of the water at the shore. what a location. it would make anyone want to get down on their knees and give thanks for just being alive and in the here and now.
