Tirtaganga is the residence of the Raja of Karangasem, which he built in 1942. The palace is relatively new, but it concentrates the architectural achievements of Balinese and Chinese construction masters of that time.
The Raja was very fond of beautiful places, and for the Tirtaganga Palace (the Sacred water of the Ganges) he chose one of the most picturesque places in the interior of the island – the purest springs flow from the ground here, and the surroundings cannot be described otherwise as “beautiful and calm”.
The entire architectural structure of the Tirtaganga Water Palace includes three large lakes, several swimming pools and dozens of different sculptures. Water in these places is considered sacred and is used by local residents in various religious rites and ceremonies. To see the water palace, you need to go to the eastern part of Bali and it’s worth it! Many tourists consider the east of Bali to be the most picturesque part of the island.
This waterfall is the highest (more than 40 meters) and full-flowing waterfall in Bali. The waterfall is located 10 kilometers from Singaraja, a town in the north of the island.
Near the waterfall there are many viewing platforms from which you can enjoy a great view. Also, if you dare to overcome 340 steps, then you can go down to the waterfall, and even swim in it.
Some call this tropical waterfall one of the most beautiful in the world. But be sure – there is nothing more beautiful on the island, that’s for sure!
