Saraswati Temple reviews
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... more »
Beautiful temple in the centre of Ubud with a big lotus pond in the front. The entrance is free. Great spot for taking photos any time of the day. more »
Bali is overflowing with beautiful ancient temples but this one is arguably my favorite of them all. It's hidden right in the middle of town but as soon as you enter the area it instantly feels more peaceful and calming. This has become a more popular stop so I recommend coming early or late so you have the place to yourslef to truly experience this tranquil water temples nature.
Beautiful temple surrounded by lotus garden. A good place to take photos. It is a little bit touristy but still not too crowded. Strategically located and easy to reach, there are many places to eat just in front of the temple and in its surrounding areas.
