Taman Soekasada Ujung
Sandwiched between the rising peaks of north Bali and the sloshing blue swells of the east coast, the Taman Ujung Water Palace is another cultural jewel of the Isle of the Gods. It was once a kingly retreat, used by the chiefs of the Karangasem regency in the early 1900s. Inside, you can discover grand court rooms lofted over mirror-like ponds. There are elevated walkways and pagodas that sit serenely on the H20. What’s more, the whole lot is laced together by a curious mix of eastern and western architecture.
