Their fantastic ceiling murals in the traditional ”wayang” style of painting depict the punishment in hell for wrong-doers, as well as the rewards in heaven for those who are good and honest in their lifetime, depicting a highly evocative view of the Balinese belief in “karma pala”; every action bears fruit, be it good or bad.

Judgements were made according to traditional lawa by three Brahmana high priests. During Dutch colonial rule the courts were still held here,  pronouncing judgements on cases concerning custom and traditional law which could not be settled at the village level. Meetings were also held during the full moon of every fourth month of the Balinese Calender, attended by the regional king throughout Bali, wherein the high King of Klungkung gave his directives and decisions concerning the problems of Kertha Gosa was also often used for audiences granted to guests and foreigners by the king.

A memorial to this terrible Puputan bttle that ended 600 years of glorious rule in Bali bye the descendant of Majapahit, has been erected on the eastern side of the Regent’s office, across the road from Kertha Gosa.
