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.

All the temples are amazing and a must once you are in there, BUT I do recommend to get a guide to explain you everything, they history is amazing and I would have loved to have time and go t every single one of them

Beautiful environment. Howerver, we were disappointed as we could only see the temple from outside. One is allowed into most temples in Bali if you wear the traditional Bali dress - sarong and head gear.

Nice and very quiet place in the middle of Ubud to sit down and relax if you are walking tired with usual Ubud noise. 10-20 minutes visit should be more than enough.

If you're visiting Ubud market, the Saraswati temple is right in the middle of it so you can pay a quick visit to the place. You can't actually go inside the temple grounds unless properly dressed though and even so, it's not very clear how/if you can enter so you're mostly just visiting the outside part of it. There are a huge amount of temples in Bali. This place is just in a very convenient location that you can fit into your day.

Right in the heart of Ubud this very relaxing spot is well worth a visit. It's especially nice in the morning before it gets hot and the crowds arrive. So easy to include in your day.
