Kerta Gosa is a beautiful historical site situated in the hearth of Semarapura Town. The name of Kerta Gosa is taken from Sanskrit where Kerta means serene and meanwhile Gosa word is derive from Gosita that mean established or announced. Thus the meaning of Kerta Gosa is a kind of Bale building where the king announces Judicial Legislation, justice, punishment and so on. Beside of Kerta Gosa, there is a building called by Taman Gili which is located adjacent to Bale Kembang that is a traditional building floating in the center of fish pond.
Then explore the indigenous village of Tenganan, which retains its ancient pre-Hindu customs through a strong code of non-fraternization with outsiders. It is a symmetrically laid out Bali Aga village with walled homes and unique crafts; Bali Aga were the original inhabitants of Bali, before the arrival of Hindu Javanese.

Along the road to a water palace you can see the scenery of rice plants are very beautiful and charming. Tirta Gangga literally means water from the Ganges and it is a site of some reverence for the Hindu Balinese.Strictly, the name refers to the water palace built in 1948 by the Raja of Karangasem, Anak Agung Agung Anglurah Ketut Karangasem. It is, however, the name widely used to refer to the general area which includes the water palace and the lush rural areas around.
