Tirta Gangga is located on the East coast of Bail in the city of Amlapura. The Raja of Amlapura, Anak Agung Anglurah Ketut built the water palace in 1947 and used it for weekend retreats. It is built on a natural spring that is considered to be holy and sacred. It was built in 1948, but then in 1963 was almost completely destroyed when Mount Agung erupted.
So this is the 2nd place we went to that has holy water. I have no idea the name of it as we had been out all day and your driver just threw it in at the last minute. This place is believed to have healing powers in the water as well. This place was just as beautiful as the last, but I believe it was hotter than the first! We were in and out in no time as everyone was melting.

Hi, I'm Trish, the writer, creator and photographer of this blog. I started this blog for 2 reasons, 1 - When I found out we were moving to Korea back in 2008 I was a little freaked out and started scouring the internet for information on Korea. At that time there wasn't much out there so I am doing my part in helping families across the world not be so freaked out when it comes time to move to Korea. The 2nd reason I started this blog was to help stay connected to family members back in the states. Today it is so much more that.
Are you moving to Korea? Do you have questions, concerns? Are you freaking out? Freak out no further - click the button to ask a question. I'll do my best to answer open and honestly.
