Built in 1946 by the late King of Karangasem, it has a maze of pools and fountains surrounded by a lush garden, stone carvings and statues. It was almost entirely destroyed by the eruption of nearby Mount Agung in 1963 but has since been rebuilt and restored. The name itself, Tirta Gangga literally means holy water of the Ganges; referring to the waters of the holy spring which is renowned for healing and believed to have youth-giving powers. It is said that if one bathes in the waters of Tirtagangga on the full moon, they will be blessed with lasting youth and illness will be healed.Stroll around the water palace and feed the koi fishes while taking in the beautiful scenery or bathe in the public pool with the holy spring water (additional charge applies at guests’ own expense. A change of clothes is also required).Your next and penultimate stop before Candidasa is Taman Ujung; a former palace built in 1909 by the late King of Karangasem. Combining Balinese with European architecture, it is one of the island’s largest historical landmarks, with superb mountainous backdrop to the north and ocean to the southwest.Check in at a resort located in Candidasa and enjoy the evening at leisure.
