Taman Ujung Water Palace
Taman Ujung Water Palace
Bali Ujung Water Palace, also known to the locals as Taman Soekasada Ujung, was constructed in 1919 and official opened in 1921 by the King of Karangasem. The palace can be found in the village of Serayan in the Karangasem regency. Taman Ujung is also referred to as the sister site of Tirta Gangga. It is truly a spectacular example of European and Balinese architecture featuring three huge ponds with long ornate bridges and paths connecting them.
Within the palace grounds are historical buildings and a variety of large pools all set against Mount Agung in the background and the ocean shoreline to the east. The palace was badly damaged from the eruption of Mount Agung in 1963, with super heated volcanic ash causing almost complete devastation to the site. On top of that, a major earthquake in 1979 also caused extensive damage to the structures and ponds. Thankfully, the government commissioned major renovation works which took many years to complete, and today it has been restored to its formal glory.
The palace grounds are located 11km southeast of Amlapura and reside on approx. 10 hectares. The raja I Gusti Bagus Djelantik resided at the palace from 1921 and the grounds underwent further expansion with new pools and structures being added. Originally though, the first pool constructed was not for royal bathing as some would think, but used for as a form of punishment to those the king considered to be using witchcraft and black magic. This pool was known as Kolam Dirah and was first constructed in 1901 during the reign of the previous raja of Karangasem.
Located to the southeast of the palace is the Dirah pool, and two additional pools were later constructed along with the Taman Gili floating pavilions, meditation buildings and a number of resting pavilions. You will find beautiful statues, pillars, gardens and pools to explore.
This area is considered a photographer’s paradise, with breathtaking mountain sceneries to the north, and the ocean to the southwest. The site is also used extensively for wedding photographs and professional photographers. The name ‘Ujung’ translates as ‘extremity’ and is truly one of Bali’s most beautiful places to visit and explore, along with the rich history, architecture and culture.
