The History Of Tirta Gangga Water Palace Bali

Another spot made even more popular by social media, Tirta Gangga Water Palace Bali has always been a tourist destination to those visiting the island.

The name Tirta Gangga literally means ‘water from the Ganges’. Hence Tirta Gangga Water Palace Bali is a maze of pools and fountains. Surrounded by beautifully kept gardens and many stone carvings and statues.

We arrived around midday and although the weather was scorching the crowds weren’t too bad. It’s not a huge complex and you won’t want to spend hours there but it is a nice spot to take a walk and cool off in the local pool if you fancy it.

Kids were jumping in and playing around as parents watched on from the warung style cafe on site.

There is also of course the insta famous stepping stones that lead around the centre piece – an 11 tier fountain. You can feed the fish in the area and capture a memorable photo at Tirta Gangga to end your visit.
