Tirta Gangga, Karangasem

4.6
Discover Bali's royal history at Tirta Gangga, a water palace featuring a network of fountains and pools surrounded by well-manicured gardens. Though it looks ancient, the palace complex actually dates back to the 1940s. Carefully restored after a nearby volcano erupted in 1963, the grounds boast an impressive eleven-tiered fountain that forms the centerpiece of the surrounding sculpture gardens. Make a brief visit to photograph these highlights and relax amid the verdant scenery, or plan a longer tour of the terraced countryside to see fertile rice paddies and a number of old temples.

    Water palaces are a relaxing visit on a hot day. And this one is very pretty and entertaining with the fish pond. It gets a little crowded but the pictures make up for it!  more »

    My favorite temple so far in East Bali. Hopping around the carved stepping stones in the pools had a certain Indiana Jones feel to it. Also really appreciated the demon statues in the back right corner.

    This is one of the most impressive temple in Bali. If you want to feed the fish, I recommend to bought big package of fish food because it's much cheaper that tiny pack one.

    Not bad. It's worth a visit if you've never been here before and quite Balinese.
