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.

It is a very beautiful temple. Not so big, but very nice with all the water. Entrance fee is 30k rupias per person.

This water palace is definitely worth the trip! There are statues and water fountains and stepping stones across pools full of huge koi fish. You can pay to feed the fish. There is a small entrance fee and a swim in the stone pools costs...More

I think between 2.5 and 3.5 hours - depending on traffic and stops. For a day trip, best would be to combine with other attractions - such as the Tegenungan Waterfall or Bias Tugel beach. Hope this helps. PS Don't forget... More

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.
