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 more like a garden with decorative ponds and fountains. There's a pond at the top level that allows bathing/swimming (not sure if it's open for non-worshippers). One also gets to purchase some feeds for the fish (which can be fun for kids). A...More
