Tenganan Ancient Village
Ancient, the origin of Balinese people, culture and tradition
Tenganan Village, located in East Bali, is one of the Bali Aga (indigenous Balinese) settlements known for its well-preserved village layout and continued survival of traditional trades. The community is within an 8-minute drive from Candidasa's beach resort centre.
Tenganan Dauh Tukad (loosely translates to 'west of the river') and Tenganan Pegringsingan are the two sections of the village divided by a river. The traditional geringsing tie-dyed 'double ikat' cloth of Pegringsingan is famous. If your visit falls around June or July, the annual Perang Pandan war dance, which features friendly duels between village lads coming of age, is absolutely worth witnessing.
