Pura Taman Saraswati (a wedding photographer’s paradise)
Behind the first Starbucks in Ubud (Jalan Raya Ubud) is a magical oasis of serenity and Balinese architecture. A path flanked by lotus ponds leads you to an impressive example of an ornate kori agung gate. The kori agung gate, is a portal wide enough for only one person that leads to the inner sanctum of a pura. These gates have steps and a towering tiered roof. Pura means temple. Taman means park. And Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of knowledge and art.
Needless to say, this epic scenery is a perfect backdrop for wedding portraits, romantic dinners, and traditional dance performances.
