A small but nice Balinese temple in the heart of Ubud. Doesnt take too long to see this place. And there's a Balinese themed Starbucks just next to this temple.

This temple is situated behind the Starbucks. After popping by for a coffee, we took a few extra moment to observe the temple. A neat looking temple in the heart of Ubud. Pop by if you have a chance.

Divine Hindu temple. Sarongs for hire for a small donation. Check opening hours as we were not able to enter the temple due to a performance scheduled that afternoon. Grab a coffee at Starbucks right next door overlooking the water lily pond. Serenity.

When we visited this temple there was a bride and groom having a photo shoot in front of the lotus flower pond. This really added to the experience, however the scenery there is amazing anyway. Definitely worth a pop in, but not for any longer...More
