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.

Expect romantic views with lots of ornaments in a very nice water landscape. Like us, ideally you stay in the embedded hotel, but a visit during day time is also worth a detour.
