Monday Mystery Photo – Last time Bali

Every second Monday, I post a photo of a ‘mystery’ location, and sometimes a mystery object.

I invite you to leave a comment if you think you know the location, or what the mystery object might be.

If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog in a post the following Monday, when the answer is revealed. Comments will be released later in the week, (Thursday Australian E.S.T.) so as not to spoil the fun for latecomers, to this post.

Ted from has been a welcome regular commenter on Monday Mystery, but this week’s photo is one he won’t be racking his brain about, as it is his own photo that he has submitted for us to ponder about.

Can you guess the location?


Guest Submissions, to Monday Mystery Photo, are very welcome!*

Last Week’s Photo


The Photo depicts a water garden called Tirta Gangga and it’s a former royal palace in eastern Bali, Indonesia, about 5 kilometres from Karangasem, near Abang. It is noted for its water palace, owned by Karangasem Royal Family. Let us all hope the tourists return to Bali soon, as the rumbling Volcano has scarred off many holidaymakers and the Balinese small business are heavily reliant on income from tourists.

Correct guesses on the location came from:

Mel and Suan from

Lorelle from

Well done! Great geographic knowledge!

This is the final mystery photo for 2017, although I will post the answer to this photo on 1st February.

January 1st is an extra special day in relation to this photo, although just why that is, you will have to wait until the next post, or ask Ted, of course!

    • It us quite an iconic place, Andrea. But well done for thinking about it. Sometimes these places are so buried in our memory we can only grasp a thin glimpse before they slip again from our consciousness.

    This is a gorgeous photograph, I’m grateful for your sharing this.
    I found a few of your thoughtful comments not answered in January last year.
    In my defense, my Mom was in the hospital. . . . but I am sincerely sorry I missed them.
    Hope you will have a wonderful New Year! 🌟💕🎉

    I stopped by to check out your name to put on my nomination post from 2017 by Nepaliaustralian blogger, “M.” I listed all areas nominations including your name on my blog later today. I have followed you since last year’s nominations! 😊
    Hope you will stop by my post as I think it is always good to remember those who we “know” even though we don’t always comment. . . Congratulations, Amanda! 🏆
