Ubud Water Palace which is a temple for the worship of Lord Saraswati was originally the residential palace of the Sukawati royal family of Ubud. It is now one of the most sacred places in Bali and apart from offering a beautiful lotus pond and water garden, the temple hosts a classic Bali dance show at night which one shouldn't miss out on. It was designed by famous architect Gusti Nyoman Lempad, who followed the rules of Tri Mandala spatial distribution while designing the palace.
Tri means three and Mandala means spaces, thus the temple complex is divided into three areas namely Nista Mandala which is the zone which connects the temple to the outer world i.e the entrance of the water palace. Madya Mandala is the middle realm which leads to the inner layers of the sacred temple and is marked with three red-bricked Kori Agung gates. The third gate is the largest of them all and leads to the most sacred space.
