Five kilometres from Amlapura is a massive water palace that was built by the last king of Karangasem in 1921, but extensively damaged by the eruption of Mount Agung in 1963, followed by an earthquake in 1975. The remains of the Palace sits in the middle of an enormous pool and is reached by crossing a narrow bridge stretching from either edge of the pool, and decorated with intricately carved arches.
The building now houses historic photographs. There are two other koi filled pools and long flight of steps leading up a terraced hillside which, once scaled, provides expansive views over the palace setting. If the walk is too challenging, there is also a rotunda alongside that provides excellent views.
An excellent venue for photography, which has been known to be used as a backdrop for wedding couples.
