A beautiful temple in the heart of Ubud.. free entry but you only need to go for 30 minutes. I was expecting a bigger place but it’s not. Very peaceful and serene but you can definitely plan it into a day with other actuvities.

Hard to find . Close to the ubud palace behind starbucks. Just very beautiful and serene. You can order a coffee at starbucks and enjoy it near the pond. Worth a visit.

The Saraswati Temple, which is surprisingly tucked in behind a Starbucks on the high street, is a pretty little Balinese temple made more attractive and photogenic by the two symmetrical Lilly ponds sited directly in front of the temple. Definitely worth a look!

Ubud is filled with temples and museums,but Saraswati Temple is a must visit!! I enjoyed walking around it and taking photos to save the memory of such a beautiful place. Its entrance is next to starbucks, so you can't really miss it.

We were here for 101 Travel Sketch, the lotus pond is always our main focus to draw. It is challenging to sketch the background without overwhelmed by the lotus pond in front of us. There are a few things surrounding this Saraswati Temple, a coffee...More

Stunning temple in the heart of Ubud. At night they have dance shows at the temple. The Lotus Café is right in front of the temple and you can reserve a table and watch the show while eating dinner.
