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.

Quite an interesting water palace, a bit too crowded for my taste, but well worth the short stop. It does not take long to walk all around, and it's fun to walk the steps in the pool.

Only for short visit and off the season, the place is quite small. Make sure you go all the way back to see the "scary" statues oof the gods/goddess.

The springs are popular with the locals and its was lovely to be able to enjoy the springs with them. You can walk around the pools and even swim in some of them. Surrounding is great, photos look awesome

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.
