Bisnis, TABANAN - Lake Beratan in Candikuning Village, Baturiti District, Tabanan Regency, serves as a vital lifeline for the communities of southern Bali, spanning from Tabanan Regency to Badung and Denpasar City.

The lake, adorned with the iconic Ulun Danu Beratan Temple atop it, holds profound spiritual significance for the Balinese people. It is revered as the spiritual source and life force of the Balinese community. The Ulun Danu Beratan Temple, dating back to the 17th century AD, approximately 1634 AD, was constructed as a sacred site for worshiping the Goddess Danu and the Lord Vishnu, who are believed to bestow fertility upon the Balinese people through the blessings of Lake Beratan.

Ulun Danu Beratan Temple comprises four temple complexes, each dedicated to a different deity: Lingga Petan Temple, housing the shrine of Lord Shiva; Penataran Pucak Mangu Temple, housing the shrine of Lord Vishnu; Terate Bang Temple, housing the shrine of the god Brahma; and Pura Dalem Purwa, housing the shrine of Dewi Danu, the water goddess also revered as the goddess of fertility.

Spanning an area of 375.6 hectares, this lake has long served as a vital water source for agriculture, tourism, and households across three districts/cities, covering a total of 31,609 hectares of rice fields and 25,496 hectares of plantation land, according to data from the Bali Provincial Government.
