Overview

The former royal palace of Tirtagangga (which means water of the Ganges, Hinduism's holy river) features tiered fountains, gardens, and stone sculptures of mythical creatures spouting water into bathing pools. Just outside the palace grounds, the views of the lush rice paddies of northeastern Bali are stunning.

We went in the late afternoon (17:00) to avoid the crowds and that worked really well. After 60 minutes you have seen most of it and then you can spend time swimming in the pool or feeding the fat fish.

This is a lovely place where family can have little bit fun hopping the pods (slabs) almost submerged (appear floating) in the water to walk across the water pond from one end of the pool to the other. Don't forget to observe the giant Lotus...More

Visited f on Candidasa so in theory only 40minutes away but as this is Bali it took longer. Only 30,000 RPH each so good value. It is worth visiting for 1 to 2hours. Really pretty and well laid out

These gardens are set out beautifully. They have stepping stones if you want to walk among the statues. Quite busy so get there early. There’s a small entrance fee. Enjoyable and easily accessible.

I enjoyed this temple but I wouldn't go there if we had a long drive just for this temple. Even though this was one of the nicest we've seen around Bali.

One of the nice attractions in Bali. Very relaxing spot with a lot of fishes (koi) in the pond. Very scenic.

Cool place to relax. If with kids try feeding fishes. Beautiful statues of Hindu gods and goddesses around the big fountain.

Definitely. Don't bother with the expensive tours. We went from Canguu on our way to Amed and made a few stops en route. There is an almost exact replica which is also close to Amed called Ujunh Water Palace (Taman... More

It took us about 3 hours from Seminyak so maybe 3.5-4 hours depending on time of day and traffic.

Hi, we spent there like 40-50 mins... and were not in a hurry. 3-4 hours you can even swim in the 'pool'. I think the 2 hours is enough.
