Tirta Gangga, Karangasem

(2,000+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Landmark
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. Make Tirta Gangga a centerpiece of your Karangasem vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Karangasem family vacation planner.

  • Beautiful water castle.. the water so fresh.. you also can swim there..
  • A nice stop by if you have just been hiking in the east . Come early to avoid crowds. And feed the fishes or follow their trail. Experience the high aesthetic sense of the Balinese here. Its breathtakingly beautiful.
  • One of the historical water palace in Karangasem. Beautiful panoramas and it is worth to visit.
  • I've never known that there is a place like this in Bali. The view is super awesome. It is recommended to visit this scenery and historic place.
  • beuatiful place, not to overrun when i was there, nice restaurant as well. no annoying people inside who try to sell stuff, it was great.
