The Tirta Gangga water palace, which means "water of the Ganges", the sacred Hindu river, is both an ideal place to stop in the village nestling among paddy fields, and also to walk. Like Ujung Palace, Tirta Ayu was built by the last king of Karangasem, and destroyed by the same volcanic eruption (1963). Since well restored, the palace has extensive gardens dotted with pools and stone statues that are lovely to wander through or even for a refreshing swim!
