Located 5 kilometers south of Amlapura, Taman Ujung was the water palace complex of the last king of the Karangasem kingdom. The building was completed in 1921, but it has been deteriorating for some time and was extensively damaged by the big earthquake in 1979.
The main object of this palace is the pool with the surrounding buildings. The architecture is a blend of several cultures; a western style was implemented for the gazebo, the arches are Middle Eastern, and the plentiful detail carving is Balinese.
From the water palace you can enjoy beautiful views of Lombok strait and the silhouette of mount Lempuyang. Even though the place is in need of restoration (old photos show how wonderful it was), it is still worth a visit.
This park is strategically located in the coastal side, south part of Karangasem town and founding a lot of wellspring around the area. If seen from the history aspect, most of all omissions from Karangasem Empire both for Lombok Island and also exist in Bali, altogether area consisted by the pool and Gili building which is exist in the middle of pool like Mayura and Narmada Park which are existing in west part of Lombok Island. We can say that this Sukasada Park as a mascot of tourist destinations in east part of Bali because Sukasada Park has been recognized until foreign countries since twenty’s year and more famous again in the year of thirtieth when all foreign tourist start to pay a visit to Bali.

He has created a lot of building not even in the form of park but he also done some building which are exist in Puri Agung Karangasem (Karangasem Palace) like gateway which is looking like pagoda.
