THE MOTO QUEST - Taman Ujung Water Place


Just a little iPhone video from when I visited the water palace Taman Ujung. The complex has a combination of Balinese and European architecture throughout three large ponds connected by long elegant bridges and pathways and its foundations were first laid out in 1919, under the rule of 'Agung Anglurah Ketut Karangasem'. The complex underwent a series of expansions and pool additions around a single existing pool which served not as a royal bathing place, but instead a site for punishment of accused proponents of black magic or Balinese witchcraft known as 'pangiwa' and 'leyaks'. The site suffered near devastation by showers of hot ash following the eruption of nearby Mount Agung in 1963, and also weathered an earthquake in 1979. Restoration efforts throughout the decades made way to its current splendor, that truly is as heavenly as it's name "Water Place" promises. Imagine yourself wandering through a calming and elegant garden, surrounded by mirroring water, where the smooth and relaxing sound of falling water drops truly pleases your soul like a the one of a king.
