Tenganan Village

28 February 2016

Hidden in the hills, Tenganan is a peaceful 700-year-old walled village. Here, the residents practice a time-honoured lifestyle based around ritual and ceremony. Many of the houses function as shops and workshops where expert craftsmen and women perform their centuries’ old skills. Traditional ‘ata’ vine baskets are laid out in neat rows upon the ground, and artists display their lontar carved books. Inside the workshop homes, you can see and purchase the famous, highly valued double ikat textiles, and the women will demonstrate the weaving process using small looms.  Make sure you visit the honey man at the far end of the village, where you can taste and purchase his wild-bee honey.
