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.

We stopped on the way back from Amed for a quick stop. Lovely gardens but not worth the trek all the way from Ubud as a stand alone spot.

Great gardens & water features. Reminds one of Tivoli in Italy. We did not have to pay extra to get into the pool, but remember to take a towel & change of clothes if visiting this.

Nice garden, beautiful plants and pools. Good for a short visit. To go to the swimmingpool you must pay a little extra.

All you can get here is couple of good photos. If you are not much into the heritage and monuments, this place can be avoided especially if staying in kuta and around. It is a small place with garden, pools and fountains.

The entrance fee is 20,000 rupiah (about US$1.50) per person, which is reasonable. The complex is not that big, and you can see the whole thing in about 15 minutes, although it is nice to take a more leisurely pace to walk all the paths....More

It's rather small but beautiful place. There's also a small bath, if someone has time, it can be fun.

Near Canidasa, there is a place to visit while in Bali...Cheap to enter, worth to spend an hour or so. Higly recommendable!

Beautiful water garden! Almost totally destroyed by an eruption of Gunung Agung back in the 1960's, with the exception of the shrine around the spring and a couple of other partial structures, it has been rebuilt and is stunning. Buy some bread to feed the...More

This amazing site is located in the East coast of Bali. A big pond with many beautiful floating statues, a picturesque green garden, a charming bridge...All are impressive in serene atmosphere. This is a really wonderful work of arts.

Although this can be termed a Tourist spot it was not built as such and there is plenty of nice scenery in the area . The Pools are nice and clean plus good for a cool dip .

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
