Tirta Gangga: the water palace built in 1946 by the Raja of Karangasem, Anak Agung Agung Anglurah Ketut Karangasem. Tirta Gangga water palace, a maze of pools and fountains surrounded by a lush garden and stone carvings and statues. The one hectare complex was destroyed almost entirely by the eruption of nearby Mount Agung in 1963. It has been lovingly re-built and restored and has an air of authentic royal magnificence.
The centrepiece of the palace is an eleven tiered fountain and there are many beautiful carvings and statues adorning the gardens.
Near Tirta Gangga there are also beautiful rice terrace views.
