The 'water palace' of Taman Ujung, also known as Taman Sukasada Ujung, is located in the town of Seraya in the Karangasem regency. It's the sister site of Tirta Gangga, which was also constructed by the late Karangasem king. Set against the backdrop of Mount Agung and the eastern seashore, the complex comprises of several huge pools and old structures.
Following the eruption of Mount Agung in 1963, the site was nearly destroyed by scorching ash showers, and it also survived an earthquake in 1979. Restoration efforts throughout the years have helped it reach its current splendor, and it continues to attract both locals and visitors alike.

Views and characteristics of Taman Ujung Water Palace
Three enormous ponds are joined by long, graceful bridges and pathways in the Taman Ujung complex, which features a mix of Balinese and European design. Its physical characteristics, as well as the magnificent mountainous backdrop to the north and the sea to the southwest, making it a popular pre-wedding and artistic photography site. Ujung means 'extremity' in Indonesian, and its location in the island's easternmost region makes it simple for locals to define it as one of the island's major historical landmarks and places of interest.
Highlights of the Taman Ujung Water Palace
The park is around 10 hectares in size and is located about 11 kilometers southeast of Karangasem's capital, Amlapura. It was founded in 1919, under the reign of then-Raja I Gusti Bagus Djelantik, better known by his noble title of Agung Anglurah Ketut Karangasem. Around the solitary existing pool, which functioned as a venue for the execution of accused practitioners of black magic or Balinese witchcraft, known as pangiwa and leyaks, the complex underwent a succession of expansions and pool extensions. This pool, known as Kolam Dirah, is claimed to have been erected in 1901 during the reign of the former raja of Karangasem. The Dirah pool, named after the witch queen of the Calonarang tale, is located in the southeast corner of the existing layout. Two further pools were erected after that, as well as a number of resting pavilions, the raja's meditation quarters, and the Taman Gili floating pavilions, to add to the Dirah pool. The complex's purpose was thereafter changed to that of a retreat and a location to greet nobles visiting the Karangasem kingdom. Taman Ujung was officially opened to the public in 1921, during the Dutch administration of Indonesia, and became recognized as a royal water garden complex.
The architecture of Taman Ujung
The decorative pillars, statues, and garden and pool elements showcase a blend of Balinese and European architecture. The combination of built structures and natural panoramas contributes to the aesthetic attraction of the area. A steep range known as Bukit Bisbis can be found to the southeast, and the named Ujung Beach, with its blue horizon, can be found to the south. To the east, there is a vast area of lush rice paddies, while to the west, there is residential development. A group of bungalows to the northwest of Taman Ujung is intended for overnight visitors. Within the grounds of Taman Ujung is the Pura Manikan shrine. Devotees and pilgrims visit this sacred water source.
