The location high on a hill provides stunning views of the surround area beyond the well manicured gardens. Off all the ponds in this palace, perhaps the most famous, and certainly the most photographed can be found just as you enter: a series of stepping stones weave their way across the pond, as the large colorful koi fish swim between your feet.
Ujung Water Palace
Ujung water palace is perhaps a little less visited that Tirta Gangga, and perhaps as a result even more stunning. The complex sits around a large central lake, where bridges covered with ornately carved arches lead to the main complex. The rest of the grounds are full of mature and well cared for gardens, and a number of of other buildings; the steps to the top of the complex are steep but worth the view.

Built in the 11th Century, the Goa Gojah temple is built into the rock face a place for meditation for Balinese Hindus. Inside this shallow cave, you’ll find three stone idols, wrapped in red, yellow and black cloths. Incense burning lines the walls with black soot, and indentations show where priests once sat. The façade of the cave shows a relief of menacing creatures and spirits. The main creature is believed to have originally been an elephant, hence the name Elephant Cave.
