Great site definitely worth an hour or so to visit. We went on the way to Amed. We got a local guide -by donation (gave 50,000IDR) -who explained history, showed us around and helped us take photos. Recommended!

Incredibly lovely. Cool spring waters feed the ponds and fountains. You can swim in certain places. Many local kids were. The gardens are very calming. I should have brought a book, found a place just to read all day. Because of the water’s cooling effects,...More

Not the most ‘exciting’ place but a pleasant spot that’s worth a look. Some real big koi fish to look at and feed and nice gardens. Little kids would likely really enjoy it.

We went here on an overcast drizzly day and it was still spectacular. The architecture and sculptures are a blend of Balinese, Indian, Chinese and Dutch influence which makes a magnificent collection. The stepping stone pond with the huge koi fish makes you feel like...More
