A great place to walk through and take some pics. We also had dinner at Lotus Cafe which provides great views of the temple and sells tickets to the nightly dance show. I recommend all three activities! Temple, Lotus and Show.

A beautiful water temple located behind the Cafe Lotus and the entrance to its enclosure is between Starbucks and the Cafe. It is free to enter the water garden area and you don't need to hire a sarong or sash for this one, as you don't really enter the Temple, just the garden. Take any photos you want, just expect...

It's not a big place but it's a nice calm and beautiful place. If you'r in Ubud it dosent take long to visit and it's definitely worth it. Plus no entrance fee!

This temple with its water lilies and ponds is just so beautiful. If you can snatch a photo without people in it you are lucky. A must see if in Ubud.

Was pleasantly surprised to just walk in to this temple while on a walk in the area . It's a small temple and you don't need more than five to ten minutes inside ( unless you wish to click many pictures) but it's very quite , beautiful and peaceful here. Must visit when in ubud.
