A beautiful and unique water palace in eastern Bali, the name Tirta Gangga literally translates to “water from the Ganges” — the holiest river according to Hindu tradition. It is a place of reverence for Hindus and a former royal palace for the Raja of Karangasem. This maze of pools and fountains was originally built in 1948, nearly destroyed in 1963 by the eruption of nearby Mount Agung, and then lovingly rebuilt in 1963. It’s located in east Bali between the beaches of Amed and Candidasa, about two hours drive from Denpasar. The water park is the crown jewel of Karangasem Regency and one of the best-kept sights in the region.
