Taman Kemuda Saraswati located behind the Lotus Cafe Ubud. Indonesia was a Hindu and Buddhist country from the seventh century but converted to Islam through Muslim traders in the sixteenth century, except Bali. The majority of Bali is still Hindu and this was a Hindu temple. We couldn’t actually go inside but it was beautiful from the outside. Two ponds with lotus flowers led up to the intricately carved entrance.
