Puri Candikuning is located amidst Bali’s central mountains and is blessed with sweeping views over Lake Beratan. Elevated high above sea level, the area of Bedugul is characterised by its cool climate and lush vegetation. The nearby Eka Karya Botanical Gardens cover almost 160 hectares of prime landscape that boasts an extensive collection of indigenous trees and orchids.
A classic Hindu/Buddhist temple founded in the 17th century at the edge of Lake Beratan is a revered cultural site. It is dedicated to Dewi Danu, the goddess of water, and worshippers come from all over the island seeking her blessing. Other local places in interest in the area include the Bali Handara Country Club for a leisurely round of golf in the crater of an extinct volcano.
