Ancient Karangasem Kingdom Tour
Visiting Tirta Gangga, the water palace, built in 1948 by the King of Karangasem. It is a maze of pools and fountains surrounded by a lush garden and stone carvings and statues. The one hectare complex has been lovingly re-built and restored after the eruption of nearby Mount Agung in 1963 and now has an air of authentic royal magnificence.
The centre piece of the palace is an eleven tiered fountain and there are many beautiful carvings and statues adorning the gardens. Before heading to Tirta Gangga, we shall stop in Klungkung, well known as the old cultural centre of Bali.
