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 was very beautiful. Especially the HUGE koi fish. They looked like they weighed at least 10kg. The annoying thing about it was the 30.000 rupiah entrance fee, and if you wanted to take a swim inside it was an extra 10.000. The restaurant inside is very expensive, and if you don't buy anything there you cannot use the bathroom.... More

Of all the temples in Bali I have visited over the time, Tirta Gangga is the most beautiful, quietly majestic, serene and special. Without big tourist crowds (not many venture this far to the East of Bali), mainly local people and special water features and fountains still functioning only on laws of physics and mechanics without electricity since the Dutch...

It's really beautiful and clean area. Lot of colorful fishes. Lot to see in small time. Fun to walk on the water. If you want sit and relax, this is the place. They have even pool but you need to pay. Bring your towel if you want to swim with the fish.

Stayed in Ubud and decided to ask my driver to drive us 2.5hrs each way to here. About a quarter or fifth of the entire place is a public swimming area (entrance fee applicable). The rest of the gardens is nice enough. You can buy fish feed outside and feed the fishes, go over the stepping stones but that's about... More

Well worth the drive!! It is stunning and so peaceful. There are fish and you can buy food to feed them before you enter but it isn't really necessary - standing on the pillars and watching them swim around is tranquil enough. I would definitely recommend going.

Tirta Ganga is just one of the sites you have to visit when exploring eastern Bali. The gardens are beautiful. I guess to get the most out of it you would need a guide, but we just strolled around ourselves. However it would be nice if they would provide a small map with descriptions on the different statues , sections... More

Entering Tirtaganga you enter a public bath. But it gives so much more. Water =tirta Gangga =steps Tirta in hindu bali is holy water. The water coming from a holy spring it gives the swim for hindus a cleansing. The water is always cold and fresh. The fish ponds are great . Stepping into the pond you enter waterworld. Food...
