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.

Interesting, beautiful grounds and loved the stepping stones while feeding the very large and hungry koi (fish) there. Little else to see unless you want to swim in one of their pools, which we didn't.

Loved it here!! The temple is so serene and beautiful. Landscaping is stunning and the statues are really cool. I enjoyed a refreshing swim in the spring fed pool.

Unique temple with impressive architecture, everything was put there with a reason. Beautiful big fish in the water around as well, can even have a snack inside if you bring your own..

Picture clicking opportunity. Nothing great apart from clicking pics. You can feed fishes in the water, though the waters are not that hygenic

We really enjoyed our visit and it's well worth going to. We got a local tour guide who was very knowledgeable and funny.

You will be expected to pay for entry. Less than £5. Pretty place, bit too touristy for me but it was still pretty and gold fishes were adorable. Lots and lots of them. They crowd around you which is soo cute. If you're in candidasa...More

I've been here twice and loved it both times. 30,000 to get in and well worth it. You pay 10,0 per adult and 5,000 per child extra to swim. Very photogenic place. It's a water palace built in the 1940's and then re-built after the...More

It took us about 3 hours from Seminyak so maybe 3.5-4 hours depending on time of day and traffic.

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.

It's off the beaten path a bit. I recommend getting a driver to take you there and other temples out that way as part of a day tour. There is a hotel attached to Tirta Ganga though.
