“Lotus pond and majestic temple!”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

I stumbled upon this pura waiting for my friend buying a drink in Starbucks (don't judge!). This is located just behind starbucks and what a find. Great view. We went there early in the morning so we had the view to ourselves. Nice and peaceful.

“Tranquil”
Reviewed September 16, 2011

Well worth spending a couple minutes in this beautiful water garden while you're in Ubud. The setting at night takes on a magical feel thanks to attractive lighting. Whether you enjoy a meal in the overlooking cafe or just stop off for some quiet reflection on your way back to the hotel after a night out, you are sure to enjoy the pleasant surroundings. Don't forget your camera.
