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 place is a must to see when you are in Bali ! Try and go a little bit earlier to avoid the crowds.

Tirta Gangga is nice place to visit. Even it is quite far from the city center but it is worth. With the water and garden scenery it is nice place to relax and take picture. I saw some of people doing their prewed here.

This is a very beautiful watertempel with lots of Kois you can feed if you wish. It has lots of nice picture spots and you can bath in spiritual water of you like (extra cost). We went to Tirta Gangga on our way from Amed...More

Water palaces are a relaxing visit on a hot day. And this one is very pretty and entertaining with the fish pond. It gets a little crowded but the pictures make up for it!

Buy some fish food before you go into this lovely place. Not only is is a peaceful, beautiful and interesting little palace, it is enormous fun to feed the huge fish who almost jump out, open- mouthed for a feed! Children would love the stepping-stones...More

One of the first must-do from early vacation planning – Tirta Gangga raised up to the expectations. Bathing here is a must for a great time. We visited Tirta Gangga on the way from Sidemen to Amed. It was a stop of about one hour...More

Although not very extensive, and very turistic (even in September), the place is beautifull and definitely worth a visit. The garden plants are beautifull, and the sculptures are very interesting. Also a possibility of walk on stone plates on the water is something uncommon. After...More

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.

I would stay rather in Ubud than Kuta as Kuta is party 24h. Sanur was OK but really not much to see and architecture was very poor. In Ubud there is so much more and easy to go everywhere. If you decide to stay in the south... More
