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.

This water garden is lovely, it is cheap to get in. Can't recommend it enough. If you like to swim in spring water then bring your bathers with you. There are many stone statues and fountains throughout, all adding to the pleasing aspects of the site.

A wonderful place to visit as part of a day trip from Amed. Some friends and I visited Tirta Gangga with a driver from the hotel (cost us $60 for the day) and he took us to a few sites, including this one. I loved looking for insects in the garden. The koi fish were huge and mesmerising. The architecture... More

Spent a morning here a few weeks ago, and took many photo's of the beautiful water fountains. Can step out into ponds on concrete pads and get up close with the large fish that swim around. Can also swim here for an extra 50cents au. They also have changing booths to put your bathers on...and was also told it was... More

This was very beautiful. Especially the HUGE koi fish. They looked like they weighed at least 10kg. The annoying thing about it was the 30.000 rupiah entrance fee, and if you wanted to take a swim inside it was an extra 10.000. The restaurant inside is very expensive, and if you don't buy anything there you cannot use the bathroom.... More

Of all the temples in Bali I have visited over the time, Tirta Gangga is the most beautiful, quietly majestic, serene and special. Without big tourist crowds (not many venture this far to the East of Bali), mainly local people and special water features and fountains still functioning only on laws of physics and mechanics without electricity since the Dutch...

It's really beautiful and clean area. Lot of colorful fishes. Lot to see in small time. Fun to walk on the water. If you want sit and relax, this is the place. They have even pool but you need to pay. Bring your towel if you want to swim with the fish.

Stayed in Ubud and decided to ask my driver to drive us 2.5hrs each way to here. About a quarter or fifth of the entire place is a public swimming area (entrance fee applicable). The rest of the gardens is nice enough. You can buy fish feed outside and feed the fishes, go over the stepping stones but that's about... More

And have a drink or a meal at the restaurant above the garden: it is SO beautiful ! We could only... More

Well worth the drive!! It is stunning and so peaceful. There are fish and you can buy food to feed them before you enter but it isn't really necessary - standing on the pillars and watching them swim around is tranquil enough. I would definitely recommend going.
