Taman Ujung

Taman Ujung

Located just 5 km out of Amlapura, this serene garden setting was inspired by a combination of classic Balinese and European architectural styles and incorporates three extensive ponds. Taman Ujung was once the grand palace of the king of Karangasem.

 

It was completed in 1921 but the earthquakes of 1963 and 1979 caused much damage the structures. It is still an interesting sight and you can wander around the pool. Or admire the view from the pavilion. Taman Sukasada Ujung is considered the structural mascot of the Karangasem kingdom.

 

From this elevated vantage point guests can appreciate sweeping views of the ocean towards the south, the tranquil beauty of the volcanic Mount Agung and surrounding rice terraces.
