Kerta Gosa ( Hall of Justice )
Ancient Hall of Justice
Kerta Gosa, also known as 'Kertha Gosa,' is a historical landmark in Semarapura, the capital of the Klungkung regency in East Bali. It is also known as Taman Gili Kerta Gosa. Kerta Gosa is part of the Puri Semarapura royal palace complex and consists of two main structures: a large hall, or Bale Kerta Gosa, with Kamasan-style murals on the ceilings, and the Bale Kambang 'floating hall' or pavilion, which is encircled by a moat.
The site was commissioned by Dewa Agung Jambe, the Klungkung kingdom's ruler at the time, in 1686. It has been restored several times in the past (the most recent in 2014), and it is one of Bali's most important historical landmarks.
