Danau Batur

Lake Batur or Danau Batur is a crater lake that fills the south-eastern side of the Batur caldera. It is Bali’s largest lake and has an area of approximately 18 square kilometers. Just as Gunung Agung is revered by Pura Besakih as Bali’s largest mountain, Batur is revered by its own temple, Pura Ulun Danu Batur, as Bali’s largest lake. Pura Batur is considered Bali’s second-most important temple, after Besakih.
