It has three ascending levels of spacious courtyards containing rows of shrines and pavilions and is surrounded by a wide moat.

Next stop of the tour is Lake Beratan, which is located at an altitude of 1240 meter above sea level next to Mount Beratan and Mount Catur. The lake fills the crater of the inactive volcano Mount Catur. A beautiful temple called Pura Ulun Danu Bratan is set on the lake surrounded by stunning scenery. Enjoy breathtaking views of the lake, the temple and the mountains besides.

After lunch, the trip continues through breathtaking valleys of rice paddies near Jatiluwih to visit the Pura Luhur Batukaru temple. It is located in dense jungle near the peak of Gunung Batukaru, Bali's second highest mountain. The temple is one of six directional temples on Bali which are believed to protect the island and its people from evil spirits. It protects Bali from the West and was built in the 11th century. The ancient complex has a number of separate sanctuaries joined by damp mountain paths, bubbling spring and large rectangular lake with a shrine in its midst.
