The yellow temple

The Yellow temple

Candi Kuning which means, strangely enough, ‘yellow temple’ (not to be confused with The King in Yellow) sits on the edge of lake Bratan in Bedugal. There’s a Hindu and a Buddhist temple on the same site and they seem to get along OK.  The Meru’s standing out into the lake on small islands are very picturesque and the whole temple complex stands within a garden. Cool wind off the lake as the whole area sits at about 700m. Anything else? Oh yeah, the Hindu temple is dedicated to  Ida Batara Dewi Ulun Danu, the goddess of the lake.
