  • The pond of lotus flowers is very cute. There is a giant mahogany tree on the right hand with a bell tower at the top. The temple was designed by I Gusti Nyoman Lempad, an architect Balinese very famous in Bali and this dedicated to the goddess Sarasvati, the patron saint of the knowledge, art and culture. The sculptures are beautiful decorated with gold leaf.

  • In the heart of Ubud is a little gem, worth seeing, this is the Saraswati Temple. It is a small Hindu temple that looks straight out of a body of water almost completely covered by Lotus plants; in September the bloom is rich and colorful and enhances the beauty of the place. In the Middle a small path, dotted with stone statues and lanterns, lead to the steps of the temple. Inside of course cannot be accessed. Admission is free and there is no obligation to wear a sarong. Quite a few tourists visit it, especially as an easy walk. Recommend visiting on clear days to enjoy the vibrant color of lotus flowers.

  • Although this place is tiny it's right in the centre of town. So worth popping in to snap some photos. It's not very busy either so a nice area to get away from the craziness of Ubud.

  • Never expect something so old and serene located right along the most busy street in ubud. It's a paradise. Book yourself a dinner place seating along the lotus pond for 7pm traditional Balinese performance. Magical and mysterious!
  • Lovely place taken over by starbucks and another coffee shop. Need traditional bali dress to enter inside. No entrance fee
  • Very nice temple. Only one thing spoils this enviroment - Starbucks.
  • A picturesque pathway over a lotus pond, leading up to the temple makes this compound stand out from numerous temples dotting Ubud. It is picture perfect and comically ironic, being practically attached to a Starbucks.
  • Magic place hidden in the center of Ubud. Free access most of the time except for events. Can be closed for Dance events or shows. Beautiful at night as well!
