One of the magnificent living hall inside Ubud Palace Puri Saren Agung. (Previous Photo)
Puri Saren Agung (Royal Palace, Water Palace), (across Jl Raya Ubud from Ubud Market). 9AM-5PM daily. This was the palace of the kings of Ubud until the 1940s, and some royal descendants live there to this day. The compound has many ornate corners and was mostly built after the 1917 earthquake. Parts of the complex are off limits to the public, but entry to the rest is free. (Sourse: Wiki travel)
Althought Puri Saren Agung (Ubud Palace) is suggest by most of the travel website and travel magazine as a place that must visit, but I doubt after I reach there. Actually after pass through the first entrance (previous photo), we found that all of the second entrance are close. Peeping into the yard through the only door that open, we found that a group of tourists are visiting inside, and we follow their steps to take a look the royal living hall too. Allow or not allow for visiting, it is still remain as a query for me. With only first entrance is open but all second entrance are closed, that mean visitors only can see a stage for presentation and a very small garden.

Splendid architecture picture!
Excellent presentation of the wonderful architectural details. The combination of the golden and the red tones works well.

You're capturing well this architecture by very excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive and interesting to see this living hall with symmetry and gorgeous ornament. It's impressive in ceiling/wall with red color and golden sculpture. Probably, it is the architecture which the highly-skilled craftsman created over long years.

The columns are framing well the door. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the living hall of the Ubd Palace. The afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Plenty of ornate detail here to see with the gold painted woodwork. Excellent sharpness & good tight framing on the Hindu Temple. Vivid colour & nice saturation. Terima kasih banyak!

No doubt a magnificent and majestic hall, and could not be otherwise, they correspond to a palace, a profusion of wood carvings and gold after it is a work of great artists.
The picture is crisp and delicious to linger in contemplation of the many details, very good light and a beautiful color. TFS.

Excellent sharpness and definition, very good colours qualities amd superb golden tones...an amazing place very well captured...
abmdsudi (35250) 2011-12-09 7:48
Its a unique interior architecture. Lovely in every detailed captured in such a natural room light. Well composed in excellent clarity, sharpness, contrast and warm tones. The most attractive is the framing, the repetitive columns are lined diagonally enhancing the depth of limited space. The point of view gives us the opportunity to exploit the image in great detail for maximum impact..The intricate design is a real eye puller. A great photographic work, an elegant architecture well taken. Well done and Congrats.

very impressive, this palace, beautiful decorations, very interesting!

I do not know whether you had time to explore more this entrance hall or not. It seems to be covered by golden stuff. Can be golden ink in timber embroidered details. But can be stone stuff either.Ifg the descendents own this palace I understand they want privacy. Such palace may contain a wealth that cannot be displayed. Certainly there must be men ready to defend it. Lucky public for still may visit part of it where were given allowance. Again I reforce the idea the palace cannnot be exposed. But at the day it becomes public then the state knows what must be done. (Ally the man with the slipper is not in hollidays. He was the man who took us in the raft). A hug Tomi
