Art Villages - Batubulan, Celuk, Batuan (Optional)
On the way to Ubud, we could stop by Bali villages. Batubulan is famous for its Batik Art, Celuk village for its silversmith, Batuan for its paintings and Mas village for its woodcarving. Barong dance is also performed everyday in Batubulan village at 09:30 AM with ticket price of IDR 100,000/ person. Bali Bird Park and Bali Zoo are also other options.
DeZoete and Spies, in their famous book Dance and Drama in Bali, describe it as an almost entirely Brahman village. Batuan is famous for the dances performed in the central part of the village and its Wayang Wong (masked human puppet) performance, featuring stories of the Ramayana epic. This is exclusively performed in the Banjar (Hamlet) Hall known as Den Tiyis. Den Tiyis gives inspiration to modern Batuan style of painting. Batuan Temple, near Ubud, is an important temple founded in 1022 AD and has produced generations of priests. Batuan Temple is considered as one of the finest and oldest temples in Bali.
