Tenganan is one of few original villages -- known as Bali Aga or Bali Mula -- in Bali. Strategically located in a valley and surrounded by a range of hills and forest, Tenganan village has developed its own way of life which borned a special custom. This custom then run and reigned the village from one generation to another. Then the culture as an accumulation of the custom presents a unique way of daily life. This has been running for centuries.

There at least four most popular and interesting things which are re-introduced to us by the civilization of this village, and make the village famous in all over the world. Let us begin with easiest one.

The Perang Pandan is one of the famous tradition which has listed in Indonesian Tourism Annual Event. Held in the range of June until Tenganan village has a precious custom on a based community forest.

This village has maintained their forest and all its contents for centuries. Their anchestors know the meaning of a forest for their sustainability life. There is no enough space to tell you about the unique of Tenganan village.

Please ask our guide for any question you want to know about this village when you are in location. And it's better for you to visit this village before you say that USA or the republic of India is the most democratic state in the world. Until at the end of 1980s, Tenganan has its real civilization. Isolated and independence. It is like a country and not much depend on other villages.

Tenganan is perhaps one of the most secluded and conservative villages on the island of Bali, protected by a strict code of isolationism, this ‘original‘ Bali Aga village has retained its unique culture and customs over the centuries.

High walls surround the village, and marriage to outsiders is frowned upon, The famous double-ikat Gringsing woven cloth is made here, in a process which takes anything up to eight years to complete one piece. The aristocratic Tenganese own large tracts of fertile land, which they hire out to naighbouring villagers to farm on a share-cropping basis. A number of unusual rituals take place in this village on special holy days, and once a year there is a ritual blood-shedding fight of pandanus leaves in which all the men of the village prove their manhood.

The gamelan instruments used to accompany ceremony and dance are the ancient Selunding instruments, rarely seen now in other parts of Bali. From Tenganan it is only a few kilometers up the coast to the idyllic golden sands of Candi Dasa, recently developed resort that has sprung up around an ancient temple of the same name that is said to be directly linked to Mt. Agung by an underground cave.
