Getting to Know the Unique History of Sukasada Park
Many tourists are curious about the history of Sukasada Park. Who would have thought that Sukasada Park was first built in 1909 by the King of Karangasem named I Gusti Bagus Jelantik whose title was Agung Anglurah Ketut Karangasem.
The King of Karangasem ordered 2 people from Dutch architecture named Van Den Hentz and Chinese architecture named Loto Ang to develop the Dirah pool. Finally this park was completed in 1921. He made this park as the resting place of the King of Karangasem. Apart from being a resting palace for the King, this park was also built as a place for growth and to welcome the guests of the Karangasem kingdom.
The Interesting Things From Sukasada Park
In addition to having a Dirah pool, Sukasada Park still has several other attractions that can amaze its visitors. Like a pillar building without a roof which is in a rather high place where visitors have to pass 100 stairs to get to the place.
From the pillar building, tourists will be treated to a special view of the blue sea and Ujung Beach. Then in the east, looking down, you can see the charm and unique architecture of Taman Sukasada. In addition, in the upper east there is a green hill called Bisbis hill.
Some of the other attractions that can be found in Sukasada Park are as follows:
At Taman Sukasada there are 3 pools in 1 place with separate locations. Where 1 pool is in the south and 2 pools in the north. In the middle of the southern pond there is a building called Bale Bengong, a building without walls.
The area of ??the pond in the north is larger than the area of ??the pond in the south. In the middle of the pond to the north, there is a bridge that is used to cross the pond.
In the middle of the pond connected by a bridge, there is a building that was used as the resting place of the king of Karangasem. Because the king's resting place looks hanging, local people call it the hanging palace. All pools have a depth of 1.5 meters.
Unique Architectural Style of Karangasem King's Rest Palace
The architecture of the King's resting palace is called unique because it has a blend of concepts from medieval European architecture with Balinese architecture. The hallmark of European architecture can be seen from the colorful glass found on the walls of the king's resting place, similar to the design of churches in Europe.
However, please note that the architecture of Taman Sukasada is no longer the same as the original, because it was damaged by various historical events such as the Japanese occupation of Bali.
