Owner description: Saraswati temple Kingdom of Ubud is dedicated to honor the Hindu Goddess Saraswati, the goddess of learning, literature and art. This temple is very beautiful and artistic, so many tourists who come to see its charm, but for purposes of worship. Pura Taman Saraswati has a water garden and lotus pond at the center of its attraction as a tourist attraction.This temple is decorated with so many fine carvings and inside there Padmasana shrine located in the northeast, but it also contained bale barong, giant masks, statues of Goddess Saraswati and the statue of the devil Jero Gede Mecaling as high as 3 meters in front of the temple.

“Pretty”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This particular temple is pretty and the grounds are nice. If you are near it, it is probably worth looking at, but I would not go out of my way to see it. Others may have a different view.

Also, if you are looking for it, it is just behind Starbucks.

“Quiet setting”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

The main temple was closed when we went. (Friday) I was told some dance programs happen early mornings or in the evening. The place had a huge lotus pond and the whole setting is idyllic. There is a Starbucks next to this and it's at out of a beautiful building too. There is also a cafe in this space. Its beautiful to just sit there while you sip your drink.

“Very serene temple”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

This was an amazing temple. When we went there, folks were doing some artwork within premises, so it was even more nice. We enjoyed the beautiful idol of the Goddess Saraswathi.

“Beautiful temple”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

The temple surrounded by lilies is beautiful. This is in the centre of town & is well worth the visit. We did not get to go inside as there was a royal wedding on during the week we were in Ubud but we do not feel like we missed out as the outside was stunning.
