Anak Agung Gede Jelantik, the first king of Karangasem Kingdom, built puri Agung Karangasem or Karangasem Palace in 19th Century. This tourist destination is visited for its unique architecture, which is the combination of Balinese, Chinese and European architectures.
The location of Karangasem Palace is in the center of Amlapura, approximately 78 km from Denpasar. As mentioned before, the architecture of Puri Agung Karangasem is the combination of three different styles. Balinese architecture can be found on the carving of Hindu statues and the relief on the walls of the building. The European influence is seen in the style of the main building with its large veranda, while the Chinese architecture is implied in the style of the windows, the door and its other ornaments.
Puri Agung Karangasem consists of three parts, namely Bencingah, Jaba Tengah and Maskerdam. Bencingah is the front part of the Palace, where traditional art performances take place. Jaba Tengah is set as the Palace Garden with a big pond. In the middle of the pond, there is a building called ‘Balai Gili’ or floating building. There are 2 old lychee trees here. The third part is Maskerdam. This name was derived from the name Amsterdam, a city in Netherlands. This building was constructed when the King of Karangasem began his relationship with the Dutch government.
