Saraswati Temple is right in downtown Ubud next to Starbucks. There are beautiful water lotus ponds surrounding the grounds. Make sure you have a sarong if you want to enter. Highly recommend!

I was staying in Ubud, this was one of the attractions I'd planned beforehand , the entry fee is about $3 USD, the scenic beauty it provides is worth it, ancient architecture, lotus pond. Worth a visit.

Magnific garden and oase of rest and peace just aside the busy city. Good to visit as one of your first temples, otherwise it will nog give you a 'waauw' feeling ;)

Easy temple to visit as its right along one of the main roads, very close to the Ubud Royal Palace. Located right behind Cafe Lotus and Starbucks, you can't miss it! You can catch Traditional Balinese dance performances here in the evenings.

Nice temple in the middle of an area that has a lot of tourist traffic. If you are in Ubud, it's very easy to just pop by and take a look.

The pond with lillies is impressive. The temple itself not so much. Walk in if you happen to pass this but dont build your itenary around this.

This is a small area with a couple lotus ponds in front of the temple, but it really is an ideal spot for pictures and selfies. This is a well maintained area. There is also a restaurant on one side of the lotus pond and...More
