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.

This place is worth a visit. You will find a very nice water palace with a wonderful garden. The only downside is that there are a lot of tourists on a rather small area.

A lovely well kept place and certainly worth visiting if you are near by. This was part of our tour and we wouldn't have made the trip out there otherwise but pleased we did. Lovely gardens, sculptures, fountains and ponds. There were some wee shops...More

The enterance fee is 15000 IDR/visitor. When we went through the enternace I was like wow! So beautiful. But it's actually as big as you can see in first sight. Intersting points is that there are pools in the garden that people (+tourists) actually swim...More

Certainly a fantastic place to visit, Rp30,000 entry fee, must wear a sarong & a sleeved shirt inside the Temple areas, best is to pay a tour guide approx. Rp50,000, well worth it. We had an elderly lovely gentleman named Gusti, most helpful & continued...More

Simply amazing. Gorgeous with the sculptures and the fountains. It is also fun to walk or jumping on the "pavement" on the lake among fish. Must see in east Bali

The Tirta Gangga is definitely among the places you don't really want to miss in Bali. Despite being a bit out of the path of the typical sightseeing tours, a detour to visit the Tirta Gangga is strongly recommended. We spent plenty of time beholding...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.

I would stay rather in Ubud than Kuta as Kuta is party 24h. Sanur was OK but really not much to see and architecture was very poor. In Ubud there is so much more and easy to go everywhere. If you decide to stay in the south... More
