Jimbaran the Fishing Village

Jimbaran is a fishing village and tourist resort in Bali. This was formerly a real backwater of south Bali, just a tiny fishing village with a daily market. Located just only 10 - 15 min. south of the airport.

That all started to change in the 1980s and Jimbaran is now home to several world class 5 star beach resorts, plus a few more moderate mid-market hotels. There is however little in the way of budget accommodation and there are also many high-end villas in this area, particularly on the ridges of high ground above Jimbaran Bay. This has resulted in monikers such as the "Beverly Hills of Bali" or "Millionaire's Row".

Jimbaran is also home to a Norwegian University, Gateway College, with around 500 students studying athletics, philosphy, culture, economics and journalism. The school is located in Bantas Kau street, Kedonganan - close to Sari Segara Resort.

Traditional Architecture in Bali

bali traditional house
Traditional architecture in Bali derives from two sources. One is the great Hindu tradition brought to the island from India via Java. The second is an indigenous architecture pre-dating the Hindu epic and in many ways reminiscent of Polynesian building.

Even the Balinese temple, it has been noted, is surrounded by a stone wall dividing its sacred precincts from the village very much like Hawaiian and Tahitian places of worship.

balinese traditional house

Balinese temples are wonderful places. Typically divided into three parts, one inevitably passes through a split gate or Candi Bentar to enter the first courtyard. Here a second gate rising high with the grinning face of a guardian demon leads to the second division. Inside there are numerous pavilions used for various purposes. In the final courtyard one may find the meru pagoda which may have as many as eleven roofs if the owner or temple is important enough.

Food for the Gods

To the Balinese indeed, the best food is not sold to humans, it is instead offered to the Gods. Forget the Balinese lawar, sambal Bali spices and babi guling (suckling pig) - the best of the best in the island, is not for you or me, but for visitors from the invisible world: gods and ancestors; as for the “worst” of the worse, put on the ground, it is symbolically “eaten” by the buta (earthly, “demonic” forces).

But the best food to the Gods is usually provided in the God's restaurants: temples. Welcoming them during temple festivals is, like humans, providing them with the best food and the best dances. This food is is commonly called offerings.

The Original Balinese

Bali Aga are a unique ethnic group that still live and practise a way of life that pre-dates modern civilisation. The Bali Aga are thought to be the original inhabitants of Bali who fled imperialistic invaders, eventually finding refuge in the solitude of Bali's remote mountains. Only two villages remain - which until recently, were firmly shut away from the rest of the world, hidden in the hills of East Bali.

bali aga

The villages, home to the Bali Aga, are shut off by a solid wall surrounding the entire village. The wall is only broken by means of four gates, each facing north, south, east and west.
