  • It is near the city center, at walking distance from Monkey Forest. The entrance is free and the view is very nice.

  • The temple interior seems to be closed to public, but the exterior is still incredibly beautiful. It’s a nice pit stop if you are in the area for a quick photo, or having a meal overlooking the lotus pond - view from the lotus cafe looked to be great for this. Don’t know if they have closing hours, but it was still accessible to the public when we went by at 9:55pm!
  • This temple looks fantastic from the outside. There are two ponds in front of the temple full of beautiful Lotus. This is a Hindu temple dedicated to Goddess Saraswati, the goddess of learning and knowledge. There is no entry fee but you are not allowed inside the main temple. A must visit
