A landmark in the centre of ubud
May 2020
Literally I’m not sure about the religious meaning of this temple. The front square is considered to be a performance site. You need to visit it when you go through ubud.

Simply succinctly stunning
Nov 2019
This is one of those “blink and you’ll miss it” temples, not too far down the street from the Puri Saren Palace. Much like the Royal Palace, if you didn’t know it was there, you would easily walk right on by, which is strange seeing as Saraswati feels three times taller that the Royal Palace and has its entrance flanked by gorgeous lotus ponds.
While Saraswati might not offer the most things to see, bar its entrance gate and the lotus ponds, they are such a striking, serene image that it’s no wonder they offer a service on wedding photos there. As far as a tourist spot goes, it’s a very brief stop but a beautiful one at that. There’s something about a good water feature that just calms the soul. If you’ve got five minutes and want a beautiful photo, Saraswati is where it’s at.

Gorgeous temple
Aug 2019
A lovely Hindu temple located right in the centre of Ubud. The entry is free and there are lots of beautiful gates, which present many photo opportunities. It has a Lotus pond too, which if you're able to catch it at the right time of year, would be amazing to photograph.

Free entry
Mar 2020
This is a beautiful place to visit, right in the heart of Ubud. I came here in March looking to have the perfect views with the reeds in the water, but I wasn't able to get these views. But it was still able to give me some gorgeous views. This is free entry

Super easy to find - right in between Lotus Cafe and Starbucks. Or you can see it when dining at Lotus Cafe.

If you want to get great photos, maybe visit early as this place is always crowded

Lotus Pond Heaven
Feb 2020
Off the main drag behind Lotus Cafe is Saraswati Temple. It is a lovely serene space with two large ponds full of lotus plants. Lotus are amazing plants at any time of the year, but when they are all blooming this temple is truely stunning. Very worth a visit and a quiet stroll around away from the madness of Jalan Raya.
