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.

“Cool temple with a view!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

This temple is really pretty with the lily pad lake in front. Definitely a spot for a photos. We went later in the afternoon and there was hardly anyone there which was better for photos. Not huge, so doesn't need a lot of time!

“Very beautiful, good place for photos”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

You don't need much time, it's right in the centre of Ubud and it's one of the most beutiful temples in Ubud. At night they have a performance that is quite interesting if you haven't seen any yet.

“Must-See in Ubud”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

The Pura Saraswati is located in the centre of Ubud at the main road. For me it was one of the prettiest temples in Bali (and I saw a lot ;) ). It's not that big but a beautyful picture with the lake in front of it. If you want to go in don't forget your sarong, you cannot rent it there. In the evenings you can see the legong dance here.
A unique thing would be the Starbucks gong at the entrance ;)

“Very pretty temple - only 20 minutes needed”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Very pretty temple in downtown Ubud. Best to combine with breakfast or lunch. Great for photography and portrait photos but I am not sure you can enter the temple complex.
