In 1909 Taman Ujung was built, which was initiated by King Anak Agung Anglurah Ketut Karangasem. It involved a Dutch architect named van Den Hentz and a Chinese architect named Loto Ang.

Apart from foreign architecture, the construction of this park also involves traditional architecture, namely undagi. This construction also received instructions from Mr. Wardodjojo who is a technician from the Public Works Department.

Along with the development of this park, it was damaged during the Japanese occupation, the iron fence of the garden was used as a tool to fight the Japanese.

In addition, this park experienced an eruption and an earthquake from Mount Agung so that the beauty of Ujung Karangasem Park could not be seen.

It was only in 2000 that the Karangasem government made improvements to Sukasada Park without changing the original shape of the building which was the resting place of the king of Karangasem. This repair and conservation can be done with the help of the World Bank.

In the middle of the southern pool, there is a building in the middle of the pool, the name of this building is Bale Bengong. The building of Bale Bengong does not use walls.

The pond in the north is larger than the pond in the south. In the middle of the pond in the north, there is a bridge that is used to cross the pond.

In the middle of the pond connected by a bridge, there is a building that was once used as the resting place of the king of Karangasem. Because the king’s resting place looks hanging, the local people call it the hanging palace.

The Architecture of the King’s Rest Palace of Karangasem Bali

A fusion of medieval European architecture and Balinese architecture. The hallmark of European architecture can be seen from the presence of colorful glass found on the walls of the king’s resting place similar to the design of churches in Europe.
