Tirta Gangga was originally the bathing and resting place for the king of Karangasem and numerous pools still exist in the complex. In the north of the complex, a large natural spring shoots out of the ground believed to be sacred and directly derived from the River Gangga. It was totally destroyed by the Mount Agung eruption in 1963 and being abandoned for years.
Today after some renovations here-and-there people starts to come (especially the local) while they still use the spring to irrigate the rice fields for the whole region, and for every ceremony local use to take the water from here.
