Located in East Bali, Tirta Gangga is a former royal palace turned into a stunning open water garden sanctuary. Tirta Gangga literally translates to “Blessed water of the Ganges,” referring to Hinduism’s holy river. The huge complex was built in 1946 by the late King of Karangasem but was destroyed almost entirely by the eruption of nearby Mount Agung in 1963. Over the years, It has been lovingly re-built and restored to the stunning complex that it is today.
