Puri Agung Karangasem  
 Known as:        
 Description:   Puri Agung Karangasem, once the royal palace of the kingdom of Karangasem, offers a glimpse into the splendour of the days when the Rajas ruled Bali. Located in the centre of Amlapura, itís a fascinating stop for anyone interested in architecture or history.
The palace was built at the end of the 19th century and is still home to descendants of the royal family. The orderly compound comprises several grand buildings and numerous separate courtyards blending Balinese, European and Chinese architectural styles. A teared pagoda-style entrance gate, symbolic of the three worlds of heaven, earth and hell, lead towards the rising sun in the east.
