The floating temple complex boasts four groups of shrines, one to worship the god Shiva, one for Wisnu, another one for Brahma and last but not least, the fourth group of shrines is built in adoration of the Goddess Danu, to whom the temple is dedicated. Danu in local tongue means “lake” and the Goddess Danu is queen of water, lakes and rivers. Lake Danau is the most important source for the rivers that irrigate the island’s highlands, and often ceremonies are held here to ensure water supply to the Balinese farmers.
