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.
