Karangasem Regency in Bali is filled with many historical sites. Ujung Water Palace is one among them which was formerly a palace and now it is called Ujung Park or Sukasada Park. From Amlapura, it lies about 5 km away. The palace houses three large pools. In the middle of the pools, there is Gili Bale, the main building. It is connected to the edge of the pool by the bridge.
History: The palace was built by the King of Karangasem, Gusti Bagus Jelantik. The ownership of the palace was given to Karangasem Royal family. The construction of the building was finished in 1909 under the guidance of a famous architecture from China and the Dutch. It had faced nearly devastation by showers of hot ash in 1963 which was followed by the eruption of Mount Agung and an earthquake in 1979. Restoration of the building happened afterwards and retained its splendour and now it is one of the most features attractions in Bali for locals and visitors.
Structure of the building: The palace displays a great combination of Balinese and European architecture so well. The three large ponds enhance the beauty of the building to a greater height and they are connected to each by long bridges and pathways.
