Only a few Lempad's artwork and paintings tugged away at one corner. The paintings were not hung up but just stacked together horizontally. Some of them were not even in good shape anymore. There was a lady (one of Lempad's granddaughter) looking after some paintings for sale but these were only by "friends". So it seems the late legendary Balinese... More

By chance we came across Lempad home today. Beautiful gardens but was absolutely horrified by the tiny cages holding many birds including an eagle. What is going on?

We came upon this house unexpectedly. It was free to enter and we experienced a courtyard full of beautifully carved wood. We didn't enter the house but just the courtyard was worth the visit. There are a lot of caged birds which did make me sad.

If this is really where the generations of this artist's family still live (and I suspect so given the working open but private kitchen and fridge on the side), being able to walk around is more of an insight into a way of life than just all the art all around. And yes, there are still numerous caged, chirping birds... More

It was a wonderful garden and just a small part of art gallery. There are better art galleries out there. It was just so sad to see many birds in cages. I know it was not the purpose to go and see birds, but when I saw that, it just made me sad to be there.

I am a huge fan of Lempad and being in his house was something quite amazing to me. His family still takes care of the compound, and it's still very much appears as a real traditional Balinese House. I do agree that there are too many caged birds and chickens which is sad to see. The place looks quite messy... More

This spot has an interesting history of Mr. Lempad, who was a prolific artist who lived to be quite old. It also sells some art by other artists. The house grounds are architecturally interesting, worth a photo or two of fantastic Ubud carving and buildings. Nice that entrance is free. Still there are dozens of birds trapped in tiny cages...

It was coincidence that we happened to meet Mr. Lempad who is the son of the founder. He explained the family structure and how his father was the main architect, carver and designer of the Ubud King's palace. This house is full of art, culture and history adorned by old photos of Mr. Lempad, beautiful wood carvings, paintings and lots... More
