The garden is used mainly for exploration, inventory, research, conversation, education and recreation.
Beratan Ulun Danu Temple
The Beratan Ulun Danu Temple is located on the West bank of the Beratan Lake. Its name means “the beginning of the lake”, not because it is at the beginning of the lake but rather to indicate that everything which exists around the lake will be oriented towards the temple site. The site must be kept spotless. The whole complex consists of four units, each dedicated to the spirit of Lingga Petak which symbolises the respect of nature’s greatness. It was constructed around 1634.
