Overview

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.

In our opinion this was the most beautiful sight we visited in Bali. In June it was quiet crowded but still worth your visit!

What a tranquil place! Gorgeously set out gardens with shade just when you need it. Kids enjoyed feeding the fish and running up all the stairs. How I'd love to host a magical dinner party there - the King really had some style!

This one is different to many other attractions in Bali. It's romantic although you won't be alone there at all, you will leave the feeling you're a tourist behind the gate and you can swim in some of these old pools if you're courageous enough....More

The beautiful water temples are a lovely place to visit and have a wander. Incredible stone work, statues and traditional gardens. You can feed the fish, but I didn't because I think they are getting overfed :-/

This place has a playful atmosphere. Bring swimgear because you are allowed (pay) to have a swim in one of the bassins. Enjoy the statues, the fishes in the bassins and the beautiful layout

Beautiful place stepping stones were fun for the kids. Buy some fish food on the way in the fish would follow you round the stepping stones as you feed them. There is also a small pool which you can pay a small fee to swim...More

It took us about 3 hours from Seminyak so maybe 3.5-4 hours depending on time of day and traffic.

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.

It's off the beaten path a bit. I recommend getting a driver to take you there and other temples out that way as part of a day tour. There is a hotel attached to Tirta Ganga though.
