Saraswati Temple is located right in the heart of Ubud honors Dewi Saraswati, the Goddess of knowledge, literature, and art. It is set within a beautiful water garden with thousands of red lotus flowers. It does indeed make a pretty backdrop for a selfie, but it’s worth getting a little closer to admire the impressive entrance gate.
The evening sees the temple lit up as the venue transforms to a stage for regular dance and music performances. To view the gate and the ponds, find the narrow entrance between Cafe lotus and Starbucks on Jalan Raya Ubud. Entry is free during the day and unless you go for performance or ceremony, you’ll be in and out in five minutes, but it’s defiantly worth a look as pass by. Get your camera and take an Instagram selfie between the beautiful red lotus flowers.
