The Tirta Gangga is a royal water garden located in East Bali's highlands near Karangasem, Indonesia.
Positioned right on the south-east slope of Mount Agung, the highest mountain on the island, the garden includes 1.2 hectares of ponds, pools, fountains, and many other water features. It is surrounded by beautifully landscaped terrain that includes ornately carved stepping stones, statues, and endless tropical flora.
After having undergone a number of renovations following the 1963 eruption of Mount Agung, this gorgeous compound has been restored with sandstone and many of the same natural materials that were found in the original construction. In addition to being used as potable water, the waters flowing through the garden are also believed by locals to be holy. As such, these waters are frequently used as part of regional religious ceremonies.Places nearby:
