Visa Bali Info – Beautiful Ujung Karangasem Park

Taman Ujung Karangasem is also commonly called Taman Soekasada, this park is also a relic of the Karangasem kingdom of Bali.

This park is located about 5 kilometers southeast of the city of Amlapura. During the Dutch East Indies period, this place was known as Waterpaleis or “water palace” (Wikipedia).

History of Ujung Karangasem Park

In 1909, a park was built, which was initiated by Raja Anak Agung Anglurah Ketut Karangasem. He 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 the undagi. This development also received instructions from Mr. Wardodjojo, who is a technician from the Public Works Department.

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

In addition, this park experienced eruptions and earthquakes from Mount Agung, so the beauty of Ujung Karangasem Park could not be seen.

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

Until the end of 2003, this park could be visited by tourists who were on vacation in Bali.
