Especially the stone route through one of the pounds is very beautiful to walk by. All in all it doesn't take too long to see everything. It is worth... More

Tirta Gangga Water Palace is simply stunning. The water is full of large, beautiful Koi/Carp and being able to use the stepping stones to walk across the water is amazing, especially when the fish follow (if you get a little bag of food for them before entering they will really love you). The plants, flowers, giant water lilies and stone... More

Tirta Gangga/Water Palace is one of the most beautiful places I've seen near Amed. If You pay entrance fee You can also go to swim in the local pool.

Great place to escape the heat and hustle - two lovely spring fed pools to swim in and lovely gardens and ponds to relax around. There are two charges for entry - approx $2 at main entrance and another $1 if you want to use the pools.

Probably the most well-reserved Royal Water Palace from Karangasem Kingdom Era, Taman Ujung is one of them but it was undergo some renovation. Tirtagangga has pure waterspring, a medium pool to swim and a fancy restaurant on the hill side of the place.

This garden palace is so special that words cannot rightly describe its magic. This history and ancient engineering are simply amazing. This is a must see destination. We stayed in a bungalow on-site and enjoyed every minute.

I was very lucky to come here early in the morning. I can imagine how full this place must be later in the day....

We loved the Water Palace. You absolutely must visit. It was almost entirely destroyed in 1963 by the devastating eruption of Mt Agung. You would never know it as it has been lovingly restored. The gardens are lush and beautifully set out. We spent over an hour just exploring them. You can swim if you want - he did and... More
