Bedugul, Buddhist stupa, Lake Bratan


Pura Ulun Danu Bratan, this Hindu/Buddhist temple was founded in the 17th century, and is dedicated to Dewi Danu – the goddess of the waters. It is the focus of ceremonies and pilgrimages to ensure the supply of water. It situated on Lake Bratan in north Bali. It has classical Hindu thatched-roof merus (multi-roofed shrines) and an adjoining Buddhist stupa. Before people go into the Hindu-Balinese temple sites, they pass on the left of the double gate a pagoda in whose niches sit five meditating Buddhas, a sign of the adoption of elements of Buddhist belief into the Balinese form of Hinduism.
