A very beautiful temple. The place is serene and the water garden & statue are a sight to behold. A great way to spend the day. Very impressive ! Ps. : wear sarong if you wish to visit inside the temple.

The temple was open and accessible when we went on 1st September. Must put on sarong to enter, but there were lovely purple ones to borrow and return just before the temple gate on left side.

This temple is located near Ubud Palace next to Starbucks. As the name suggests, it is dedicated to the Hindu goddess Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge and arts. You need to wear a sarong, and it's best to buy one when embarking on a trip...More
