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.

  • Garden and outdoor baths this is historical, as it was built during the heyday of the kingdoms of Karangasem. The location is quite beautiful with cool air, around 6 kilometres from the Centre of the town of Karangasem. The arrangement of the pool and pond fish. Fish pond which is located next to the pool with high artistic taste, with a fountain in the middle of the pond and a row of statues that add to the beauty of the pond. There are thousands of fish in the pond goldfish and koi are very nice and large. Water pool and outdoor fish directly derived from the proper springs were above the pool. So the water looks clear and fresh. The eyes of the water never stops flowing even though in the dry season. The excess of water that never stops flowing it is, the pool water be always clean, clear, and crisp. Plenty of pool water overload flush towards irrigation canals to irrigate the rice fields that are on the bottom of the swimming pool and fish pond. In addition, a portion of the flow of water from the springs is also directly streamed through the channels of water heading to the residential population of approximately to be used by the local community.

  • That was wonderful place i have ever bern in bali. You have to go there definitely.
  • 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. For the restaurant expect prices to be a little bit higher then average since it is within the park and makes dishes of a very high quality. I was not dissapointed at all, tirta gangga is definitly something one must visit if making homiday on bali.
  • Nice location to have s divine bath...plenty of beautiful fishes all around..
  • 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.
  • Tirtagangga was enticing places surrounded by stunning rice terrace. Has got a warm fresh water and weather. Tirtagangga has just nirvana.
