So, what is Bali Aga village? Bali Aga village is a traditional ancient village in Bali, and their villager’s lifestyle is based on the rules and customs of the ancestral heritage, from the days before the Majapahit kingdom.

In the village of Bali Aga, the architecture houses, meeting halls, and temples built strongly defended the rules of a tradition for generations. Characteristics of Bali Aga villagers’ house building, made of a mixture of red stone, river rock, soil and has a relatively similar size.

What is the profession of Tenganan Karangasem villagers in general? Livelihoods in the Tenganan Karangasem villagers, generally as rice farmers. A small portion of villagers also exists as craftsmen. Residents in the village of Tenganan Karangasem in making handicrafts still use the old method inherited from their ancestors. The typical crafts of the Tenganan villagers such as woven bamboo, carving – carving, painting on palm leaves, and woven cloth.

I visit Tenganan Karangasem village very often, at least once a month, because I use the Tenganan village as a benchmark destination for cycling routes. The residents of Tenganan village in Karangasem are amiable, and the cleanliness of the settlement is maintained.

Every time I visit Tenganan Village, I feel like seeing villages in Bali when I was a child. When you enter the village area, you will see many old buildings and look unique. Also, you can access one of the resident’s houses of Tenganan Pegringsingan village. In the area of ​​residents’ homes, you can see the handicrafts for sales made by villagers.

The Tenganan village uniqueness as a tourist attraction lies in the traditional society buildings, woven Gringsing fabrics, and pandan war events.

Gringsing Fabric Craft Village

The woven textile produced by the Tenganan villagers is called the Gringsing fabric. Therefore, this traditional village also called by the name of the Pegringsingan community Bali.

From the past, the inhabitants of this village, famous for their expertise in weaving Gringsing fabric. Gringsing textiles made by employing a double tie technique. This technique is the only one in Indonesia, so the Gringsing fabric produced by the local community is very well known throughout the world.

Pandanus War At Ancient Village

Villagers have a unique tradition and become the main attraction of Tenganan Pegringsingan tourism. Every year between June and July, the Mekare-Kare / pandanus war tradition held. Pandanus war is the ritual of a pair village youth, mutually fighting using a thorn from a pandan leaf on the stage. As a result of the incision of pandanus leaf thorns, they are causing injuries on the back of the village youth.

After the Pandanus war is over, the wound treated with antiseptic folk remedies from tubers. When smeared with medicine, the youths’ backs will feel very sore. The injury will dry up and heal in a few days. This tradition carried out to train the mentally and physically of the villagers. During the pandan war event in Jun or July, you will see many photographers covering the Mekare-Kare event.

Mekare-Kare is the peak of the Tenganan Pengringsingan village ceremony procession. Local villagers call the name of the village ceremony by the name of Usaba Sambah. Usaba Sambah ceremony has a duration of 1 month, and the pandanus war usually held 2 to 4 times

For the pandanus war schedule in Tenganan Pegringsingan village in 2020, I don’t know the exact date yet. Because the pandanus war schedule does not use the regular calendar; instead, it uses the Tenganan local community calendar. Usually, the pandanus war schedule in Pegringsingan village held in June or July. Last year, Mekare-Kare (Pandanus War) held on June 25, 2019, from 14:00 – 17:00.

 

Tenganan Village is about 70 kilometers from Bali’s Ngurah Rai International airport. The trip to this village from Ngurah Rai International airport will take approximately one hour 45 minutes by car. If there is road congestion, it will take longer trips.

If you depart from the tourist area of ​​Ubud, such as the Ubud monkey forest, it will make travel a distance of 55 kilometers with an estimated travel time of 1 hour 40 minutes.

Komang is the best! If you are looking for a guide, driver, photographer, historian, and friend in Bali you have found him! We hired Komang to transport us through Bali while we were here for a couple of weeks. He is very punctual, easy to communicate with, and a very safe driver. He knows all of the hot spots to visit! He taught us so much about the local culture and even led us through offerings at the Pura Tittra water temple, which was so special. He helped us try local foods and shop from the locals. We visited waterfalls, Mt Batur, hot springs, black sand beach, gate of heaven, rice terraces, amazing lunch spots, Batik shop, and so much more! You can fully trust Komang to help make your Bali holiday lovely! He has become our Bali brother and is as close as family. ❤️

I just did a 2 days private/solo tour with Komang and it was awesome. He is a really nice guy, always keen to explain the history/culture behind the places. He also stopped at some places that I liked on the way to the temples. He was always keen to take pictures (really good ones) as well. I definitely recommend him as a tour guide in Bali. Komang, wish u all the best. Cheers from Brazil 🇧🇷

Komang was awesome! He went above and beyond. We only gave him a few places we wanted to go and he brought us places we enjoyed. He kindly explained the culture and the meanings of establishments. We learned a lot and would love to have him again as our driver and guide. If you are looking for someone to show you around, whether touristy places or very local, uncrowded places, I highly recommend Komang. He is the best guide I ever had 👍Let him show you Bali ❤️
