Hard to write a review for this as there was renovation occurring which meant the whole place was quite underwhelming. The museum was small and had some interesting information about the battle that occurred there but wouldn't recommend until the scaffolding is down

The main reason to come to this place is to see the painted ceilings. However, as there was major renovation works underway we were unable to see them, which was a bit of a disappointment. The toilets were really, really terrible btw. Only use them if you have absolutely no other option.

We stopped here on the way to Tenganon, Candidasa and Tirtagangga. It is a small palace surrounded by a moat. The ceiling paintings are impressive however best to have guide to explain the story behind them all.

The temple itself is remarkably beautiful! If it was located right in the middle of the jungle it would be one of the most amazing site of Bali, but since it's right in the center of a noisy town it's not the most romantic place... The museum is not that great. Overall a good surprise and worth a stop since... More

A most interesting ancient palace but needs to be maintained properly. Museum is sadly dilapidated and badly needs to be renovated.

We visited Taman Gili during our transfer from Amed to Seminyak. Our guide named it Kerta Gosa. The main reason to visit is beautiful roof paintings in two pavilions. The place itself has interesting history. Definitely, it is not top attraction, however worth to visit, if you are nearby.

This site is the remains of a palace, and although small is extremely beautiful and very well maintained. There is an outward simplicity about the buildings and yet when you take time to explore there is so much detail to be found. A storm broke as we were there so we had to cut short the visit and didn't get... More

This palace complex is quite spectacular. There are ponds, outdoor meeting areas, and enclosed buildings. The museum is interesting and has some commentary to give you an idea of the history. It would have been worthwhile to do some study before coming to this complex. There is a lot to see and it would be a lot more meaningful had... More

The ancient times of the Balinese royalty may have been very grand and elaborate accompanied by a high regard for spirituality as reflected in this amazing complex used as a Court of Law Hall....the Museum was quite special for me since my interest is on the area of folklore and gave me an initial idea about the characters and musical...

The roof paintings are very interesting especially if you know the story of Kerta Gosa (Hall of Justice). Museum was nothing special...
