Point of Interest
“The Bali water palace of Tirtagangga is located near Ababi village in Ababi, Karangasem, situated about 6 kilometres north of the town of Amlapura, at a distance of 83 km from Denpasar. The gardens of the Bali water palace in Tirtagangga were designed and constructed in 1948 by Anak Agung Anglurah Ketut Karangasem (1887 – 1966), who was the last Raja (King) of Karangasem. He was a remarkable man to say the least, not only because he was the architect of the water gardens, but also because he helped with the construction of the gardens.”

Amusement Park
“During his reign, the last king of East Bali built two beautiful water palaces, Ujung and Tirtagangga. The water palace Tirtagangga is constructed around a natural resource of which the water is deemed to be holy. Five basins, fountains and statues from the Hindu culture provide the garden with the appearance of entering an open-air museum. The wealth of trees and flowering plants makes the garden radiate with serenity and peacefulness. The eruption of Gunung Agung in 1963, accompanied by earthquakes, largely destroyed the water palaces. A few years ago, both water palaces were completely restored. A must see!”
