Taman Ujung

Sukasada Park Ujung is attracting international tourists.

Hello, Traveler Friends! We have some exciting news for those of you who love to travel. Sukasada Ujung Park, one of the favorite tourist destinations in Karangasem, Bali, recorded a significant increase in visits during the New Year holiday in 2023. Wow, that’s really cool, isn’t it?

According to the Head of the Management Body of Sukasada Ujung Park in Karangasem, Bali, I Nyoman Matal, visits to this park during major holidays such as Christmas, Eid al-Fitr, New Year, Galungan, and Kuningan continue to increase compared to regular days. “Every day, the visits of foreign tourists range from 100 to 150 people, while domestic tourists range from 200 to 300 people. However, on holidays, tourist visits will increase significantly,” he said.

Sukasada Ujung Park, my friend, is located at the eastern tip of the Bali Province and is historically significant in the Kingdom of Karangasem. So, it’s no wonder that this place attracts many tourists, both local and international.

Foreign tourist visits until the end of 2023 reached a fantastic number, my friend. There were around 32,000 foreign tourists and 96,000 domestic tourists who visited here. Pretty amazing, right?

Sukasada Ujung Park, my friend, is one of the main attractions among several tourist objects in Karangasem Regency. The local government continues to maintain this tourist object and provides the best services to visiting tourists.

This park was built by King Karangasem I Gusti Bagus Jelantik, who held the title Anak Agung Anglurah Ketut Karangasem. Initially, its area was almost 400 hectares, but now only about 10 hectares remain. Most of the land has been distributed to the community during the “Land Reform” period.

However, my friend, this park still belongs to the private ownership of the Puri Karangasem family. Nevertheless, the general public is still allowed to visit. In this park, there are several buildings that were once used by the royal family, such as Pura Manikan, Bale Giri, Bale Kambang, Bale Bundar, Bale Kapal, Bale Lunjuk, and Bale Warak.

Ujung Park, my friend, is about 75 kilometers east of Denpasar City. It was built in 1909 under the initiative of Anak Agung Anglurah. The architects were a Dutchman named Van Den Hentz and a Chinese citizen named Loto Ang. The construction also involved a traditional Balinese architect known as “undagi.”

Well, my friend, Ujung Park is actually a development of the Dirah pond, which was built in 1901. The construction of Ujung Park was completed in 1921. In 1937, Ujung Karangasem Park was inaugurated with a marble inscription written in Latin and Balinese scripts, as well as in two languages, Indonesian and Balinese.

So, my friend, that’s a little story about Sukasada Ujung Park in 2023. Hopefully, it’s useful and can be a reference for those of you who are looking for tourist destinations in Bali. Have a great vacation, my friend!
