Tour Itinerary :
Barong Dance at Batubulan Village
The Kintamani Tour will start in the village of Batubulan, known for its soft stone carvings of demons, garden temples, statues, Buddhas and ornamental plaques of Balinese scenes. You will attend the famous Barong Dance. One of the most famous of the Balinese dances. It is a drama/comedy featuring a witch, a monster, a princess and her servants, laughter, suspense and a rousing, dramatic, climactic ending.
The Barong is probably the most well known dance of Bali. It is a dance which is based on the fight between good and evil. This is an example of the Balinese arts acting out mythology to mimic reality. Rangda, the mother of Erlangga, the King of Bali in the tenth century, practiced black magic. She summons the evil spirits and demons of the jungle, to attack her son Erlangga. Fighting ensues and Erlangga asks the spirit Barong for help. The Barong joins with Erlangga’s soldiers. Rangda casts a spell that makes Erlangga soldiers attempt to kill themselves with their poison tipped keris into their chests. Barong casts a spell that repels the sharp keris. In the end the Barong wins and Rangda escapes. There are servants for comedy, a princess for romance and a witch for danger.
Silver Handicraft at Celuk Sukawati
Then it’s time to observe the ancient craft of silver jewelry making in Celuk. Many traditional pieces of simple earrings, bracelets, and necklaces are showcased. Then there are filigreed pieces with work so delicate they are reminiscent of silk lace or spider webs. Recently some of the younger silversmiths have created some striking modernistic designs that are sure to catch the eye. It’s a beautiful blend of traditional skill combined with neo-artistic vision.

Ubud – Village of Art
Then we will see some of the paintings, sculptures, and modern art of Bali in world famous artists colony of Ubud. In the 8th century a Javanese priest named Rsi Markendya founded the Gunung Lebah Temple at the meeting of two rivers, a very auspicious place for Hindus, in Campuan, Ubud. The town was originally a source of medicinal herbs and plants. Ubud gets it name from the Balinese word ubad or medicine.
In the late nineteenth century, Ubud became the seat Gianyar, at one time the most powerful of Bali’s southern states. Ubud is the village where the traditional Balinese painters of Batubulan and Ubud, studied with visiting European artists in the 1930’s and 1940’s. They created a style of painting new to both art worlds. There are traditional village and forest scenes as well as paintings reflecting surfers, cars, buses, as well as modern villas and buildings in the present.
