Amlapura

As east Bali’s major transport terminal, Amlapura is well connected to all parts of the island. It was known as Karangasem until 1963, when the mighty Agung volcano erupted with spectacular force and even more spectacular damage. Karangasem was “reborn” as Amlapura to rid itself of any unlucky association that could provoke a much-feared recurrence.

When visiting Amlapura, it is best to stay at the Tirta Gangga palace, not because of any spectacular eruptions , but for the sake of comfort and luxury.
