Owner description: 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.

“Beautiful palace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

This is one of the most beautiful places that I have been to in Bali. Entrance fees is only 10k Rupiah. There are many authentic and antique-looking statues in the palace. If you like feeding, you can buy peanuts to feed the big fat fishes in the pool. I was lucky because when I went there the weather was good. The sky was not very cloudy and it was blue. It is definitely a nice place for photography. I would strongly recommend this place if you enjoy seeing temples in Bali.

“Tirta Gangga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Great place to visit. Interesting story behind it. A bit out of the way from kuta though. Restaurant there was expensive and food not that great. If you go there, don't have your meal there. Go back to Kuta or Seminyak.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

This was a delight to wander through. We had a guide who spoke little English which made the walk even better. A lovely cool pool was definitely the feature. I really enjoyed walking across the stepping stones and looking at the fish. Definitely worth a visit.
