In the tallest building, there are springs that are under the banyan tree. Second-level building, there is a swimming pool and the bottom of the building there is an ornamental pond with fountains.

    When the tourists enter Tirtagangga Park, the first thing that tourists see is the expanse of the water pond and there is one temple that rises high on the right. In the water pond, tourists can see the ornamental fish and the base of the pond. Water in the garden is very clear and cool, because the pond water comes from spring water not from processed water. The springs in Tirtagangga Park by local communities are regarded as holy water. Used in religious ceremonies in the area around Tirtagangga Park.

    Rejasa Springs have a very large amount of water, clear and soothing. A third of the Rejasa Springs supply was sent to the resident's house in the city of Amlapura (the capital of Karangasem) and its two thirds were used to fill the pond and the output of the pond water directly in the use for agriculture.

    The author once tried swimming in the water pond of Tirta Gangga, the water is very cool and clear. It tastes totally different with a swim in the modern swimming pool. I suggest if you are on vacation to the attraction of Tirta Gangga, to take a dip in this bathing pond.
