Tenganan village

Tenganan village , northwest of Candidasa, is situated about 5km from the main road. Tenganan is a Bali Aga village with homes and unique crafts, Bali Aga were the original inhabitants of Bali, before the arrival of Hindu Javanese. The people of Tenganan are skilled in the unique technique of weaving, called the ‘double ikat’, where the belief in the magical power of the fabric is essential in bringing out the beauty of the ikat cloth.
We were there early in the morning, with no other tourists, which was a nice change, you also get the morning price for any purchases. We found Tenganan village the most authentic and if you see something you like buy it as their crafts were the best quality, and price compared to the rest of Bali. DSC_0132.JPG
