Pura Taman Saraswati
After a few days in Seminyak, I rented a motorbike and was off to Ubud. Ubud is a quaint yogi town about an hour north of Denpasar, it was here I’d spend the next few days. Upon arriving in Ubud it was too early to check into my guesthouse so I wandered around the Water Palace (Pura Taman Saraswati). I didn’t take a ton of pictures, but I really enjoy the ones that I have.

The lighting wasn’t ideal for pictures, but my new camera was able to pull out a lot of detail from the shadows.

I can’t imagine how long this must have taken someone to carve.

One of the many flowers I found around Pura Taman Saraswati. I believe it is a type of Ruellia, a type of petunia.
