According to WikiTravel, Tirta Gangga literally means water from the Ganges. The one hectare complex was built from 1948 onwards by the late heir to the Kingdom of Karangasem but was destroyed almost entirely by the eruption of nearby Mount Agung in 1963. It has been rebuilt and restored and has an air of authentic royal magnificence. The centrepiece of the palace is an eleven tiered fountain, and there are many beautiful carvings and statues adorning the gardens. This is a great spot to unwind and it has a real atmosphere of old Bali.
