About
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.

Place where you can pet a fish
Mar 2021
Beautiful place where you can pet a fish!!!

Fish is huge here and its so fun to feed it.

The place itself is beautiful and it is considered a Holy Water place by Indonesian people + in the past it was an Emperor palace! Good vibes + must visit!

Loved it!
Jul 2020
While on a car tour of the local area our guide took us here. We all loved it. The pools were just beautiful, we bought fish food and fed the fish and jumped across the pools. Such a memorable place to visit.

One of the best temples in Bali
Nov 2020
I love this temple. It is so peaceful and fun. There is a hotel that I don't know if good, but I can say that I would love to wake up to this temple every day. All of the Koi fish are beautiful and some of them are so big. Just amazing.

Nice
Oct 2020 • Family
Nice water gardens, good to visit with young children. Make sure to buy fish food at the parking vendors. There is a separate entrance to a swimming pool within the gardens. Short visit, combine with other attractions in the area.

Beautiful garden and fish pond
Dec 2019 • Couples
Here's the place where you can enjoy the beautiful nature from the garden and the uniqueness of the statue from tample. You can easily feed the fish in the pond around the garden. You only need to buy fish food from the vendor in front of the garden, and cute fish are waiting for you there. This is one of the most popular tourist attractions and is visited by many foreign and local tourists. so don't forget to stop at Tirta Gangga when you visit Bali.

Beautiful palace
Jun 2019
After visiting Lempuyang Temple we had planned on stopping by here to see a different sort of tourist attraction. Located around 30 minutes from the temple this water palace is a one stop location to get some unique pictures as well as eat and buy souvenirs as well. If you choose to drive up yourself the parking costs around 2,000 IDR (14 cents USD) and is located near all the shops before the palace entrance. We decided to eat before going in and were happy to find a restaurant there that accepted card. The prices were higher than what we usually pay but having the convenience of not spending cash was nice. Upon entering the palace you must pay an entrance fee of 20,000 IDR per person (1.40 USD). They also offered an additional fee of 500,000 IDR (35 USD) if you choose to fly a drone which was interesting to see they offered that option. Since it is a water palace you also have the option of swimming here in certain areas with an additional fee of 10,000 IDR per person (70 cents USD). When you enter you will see different areas to walk around and the path to cross through the water where everyone takes photos. You can see a variety of fish and have the option of feeding them if you purchase fish food before entering. There is plenty of room to walk around and lots of different areas to see. We also found out upon arrival that they have a hotel and restaurant located inside the palace which allows guests to have the palace to themselves outside of normal business hours. Because this palace is small it doesn’t require much time to see and can be added on any trip in the nearby area!

Probably the best of the Temples
Mar 2020
The lake setting just adds a special touch to this wonderful Temple. Usually it is full of people but due to the virus it was fairly empty.

Beautiful water palace
Dec 2019
I visited in Dec 2019 for the first time on the way back to Kuta from Tulamben. Entrance fee of 40k per person, but clothing restrictions weren't as strict as for a temple. Quite busy when we were there but still possible to get some decent photographs.

Amazing place
Mar 2020
Well worth the visit. It was quite a drive from Kuta but it’s worth it when you get there. You can feed the fish while stepping through one of the ponds. There are a couple of pools you can swim in. We didn’t but we did notice a few people swimming. The restaurant is very nice & clean.
