Home to the Bali Aga, the original inhabitants of Bali, this settlement features traditional architecture and preserves its age-old techniques for producing textiles. Surrounded by a wall, the village consists of simple homes with green hills as their backdrop.

  • We were not impressed by the visit to this village. What is interesting is to know the particular life of these villagers and their customs. For the tour, are quite expensive stalls selling items in the end especially. The tower was quickly made.

  • Atypical, beautiful village with its small boxes, major préaux where roam the fighting cocks painted in different colours (rather unusual and fun). There crafts is remarkable, too bad it's the same things presented throughout, accosted every 10 metres...

  • The visit to this village left me a little baffled. On the one hand it is beautiful and very friendly people. It is intended to be a spot that preserves the origins. Tenganan is the spiritual headquarters of the oldest inhabitants of Bali, Bali Aga. This village is surrounded by a wall that say, it protects of the influences external. When you enter you find with that them houses is have developed in showcases where each craftsman sells your product. There are authentic wonders. On the other hand, when you arrive you have a parking lot and a few gentlemen in a sort of box office where you buy the entrance or donation. I think that it will be gradually transforming into a themed attraction, although it is likely to be by necessity of earning a living. For me, both the village and its people deserve to be visited.
