One more tourist attraction in Bali that is rarely visited, called Taman Ujung. If you have been to Bali often, surely you know that there is so much that Bali has offered both for the local and foreign tourists such as beaches and historic buildings. However, have you ever been to a beach and a historical building in Bali?

Taman Ujung is one of the historical heritages in Bali which is now also a tourist spot. Taman Ujung is known as a pre-wedding location, but it can also be a tourist spot. Once upon a time, Taman Ujung was a Water Palace, a relic of the Karangasem kingdom. In Dutch colonial times, Taman Ujung was called Waterpaleis which means Water Palace.




Uniqueness of Taman Ujung Karangasem

The beautiful location and many spots for taking pictures make Taman Ujung popular as an Instagenic place. This park presents a beautiful pool with a neat layout and unique architecture. There are stairs to go up to the location.

In the upper west, there are pillars without a roof to see the enchanting beauty of the beautiful scenery. If you look to the southeast, there will be views of the blue sea. If you look to the east then you will be treated to a natural view of a green hill called Bukit Bibis. The architecture of the palace which in ancient times became a resting place for the king of Karangasem has its own uniqueness. The uniqueness is caused by the merger of medieval European architecture and Balinese architecture.




From the window in the king's restroom, you can see a pond with white and red Tujung / Lotus flowers. The architecture of Taman Ujung today is not like the original. This is because various historical events occur, making the architecture of the Ujung garden is damaged. As in the Japanese colonial in Bali. Iron fences are used for armed warfare by the surrounding community.

The worst damage occurred in 1963 when Mount Agung (the highest mountain in Bali) erupted. Since then, Taman Ujung has not received treatment. In 2000, Karangasem castle and Karangasem district government made improvements without changing the original shape of the Taman Ujung.




Location and Accesibility

The entrance ticket for domestic residents is IDR 15,000 / person, for local tourists the entry ticket is IDR 50,000 / person. If you want to do a photoshoot, you can hire a photographer with a promo package offered. Prices range around Rp 1,000,000.

The price of admission to the Ujung Water Palace tourist attraction may change at any time.

This Taman Ujung is located in Banjar Ujung which is included in the Tumbu Village area in Karangasem District, Bali. To go to tourist attractions on this one is about 60 Km from Denpasar. The best way that can be used is to use private vehicles because the availability of public transportation to get to this place is quite minimal.

There are quite a several tourist attractions located in Karangasem.
