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.

Tirta Gangga is more of a water garden than a temple -- the temple itself is tiny, and open only for prayers. The site is gorgeous, and you can spend hours wandering around, taking photos, feeding the fish, and crossing the pond on stepping stones....More

This water palace pretty much summaries what one can expect in bali. Intricately carved stones, very subtle yet grand design and some ridiculous attention to detail.

Tirta Gangga was the Royal water Palace. It's a beautiful complex with fountains and small bridges. This place has a peaceful vibe. We visited this place while exploring eastern Bali. It is not too far from Lampuyang Temple.

This place is very very beautiful, describing the place would require a lot of time and effort, so I think that you should go there and check it out!

Stopped by on our way through to amed and what a beautiful place it is! The gardens were lovely and the engineering involved was incredible in its own right! The entire palace including all the fountains are all gravity fed from a natural spring, no...More

Great day out and so many wonderful local figures statues with prettiest gardens. Just wandering through here is amazing and delightful. It is worth driving from the a long distance just to walk around in it. It took about 2 hours from sanur

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.
