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.

This was a very pretty temple, but like most temples, don't expect to enter unless you are in full balinese dress. This really means that you can't spend more than 15 minutes appreciating the exterior of the building. We happened to visit the cafe next to the temple to make this visit more substantial and this was a good move, very nice food and gave us the chance to fully enjoy this peaceful setting.

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.

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.

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.

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.
