Why Saraswati Temple is special ?

The royal family commissioned this temple and water garden, dedicated to the Hindu goddess of art and learning, at the end of the 19th century. The main shrine is covered in fine carvings and the bale houses and giant barong masks are interesting. The restaurant Cafe Lotus is situated at the front so


What to explore at Saraswati Temple?

The palace has a statue of Dewi Saraswati, the goddess of learning, wisdom and the river and a main goddess in Hindu, to whom the temple is dedicated. When you enter the grounds next to Cafe Lotus, you’ll immediately notice a pathway which cuts between two large water beds. In the water are fat, large lotus blossoms. Walk or wheel down this path and you will hit what appears to be a large barong stone statue in the center. The path ends here and you must climb a large step. Then, you must mount another couple of steps to reach the next level where there is a staircase leading up to the temple.

The palace is very serene and aesthetically pleasing. The water garden and the statues are most impressive and interesting. You can dine at the Cafe Lotus and have this spectacular view right behind you.
