Ujung Water Palace, Bali Overview

Taman Ujung Water Palace is a former palace, located in the Seraya Karangasam village of Bali, replete with amazingly huge pools and exotic historical structures juxtaposed against the mighty Mount Agung. Situated across a massive 10 hectares, the mind-stirring view of the palace is no less than a visual feast for the eyes.

Huge water ponds infused Balinese and European style architecture and lush green gardens are what makes one fall for the beauty of this place. But it is not only the beauty of the Ujung Water Palace which makes it attractive, but the scenic view of the area surrounding the Water Palace is also equally responsible to attract you towards itself.

The word "Ujung" in Balinese means "extremity", and the Ujung Water Palace can definitely be described so. The locals often refer to it as one of eastern Bali's largest historical landmarks and site of interest. Also known as Taman Sukasada Ujung, the gorgeous Ujung Water Palace is a must visit for the photography enthusiasts. Admirers of architecture and nature are another clan of people who must pay a visit to the place apart from a large number of tourists already present.

History of Ujung Water Palace

The history of the Ujung Water Palace is completely ironical to its beauty. While many people ponder upon the thought that the Palace must have been built as a residence of the then royal family of Bali, the truth is unfortunately opposite. In the early days, the place was used for punishing people accused of practising black magic or Balinese witchcraft, also known as pangiwa and leyaks. Originally being one of the torturing places of Bali, the Ujung Water Palace gradually transformed its identity to one of the most attractive places post the Dutch colonization of Indonesia in 1921. Since then, the place has only grown beautiful enough to attract tourists from all over the world.
