UNESCO Rice Terrace
Jatiluwih Rice Terrace is a wide range area of rice field in Jatiluwih Village, Tabanan Regency with unique landscape and watering system. The mountainous area in small island of Bali is giving a problem for the farmer to find a wide and large area of flat land in order to plant the rice but in the other hand Balinese people are eating rice as the main food. So to have enough rice supply for the locals, we found a farming technology that flattened small area of the mountain then shaped it into several different levels so it will shaped in terrace landscape. The watering system will be flow from the top level of the rice terrace and spread into the next level underneath.
Instead of flattened the mountain into a wide flat area, this option is more realistic and more ecosystem friendly since we are not changing the shape of the mountain itself. This farming system is exist in our land from hundred years ago. Even it exist before the colony from Europe start their invasion in our country. In Bali, this rice terrace irrigation system is popular as “Subak”. Due to its unique irrigation system, Jatiluwih Rice Terrace has award as the UNESCO’s World Cultural Heritage on 2012.

Due to its unique location combined with the wonderful views during the sunset time, this Temple becomes one of the tourism icon in Bali. Tanah Lot comes from word “Tanah” means land and “Lot” means sea. So it means Temple of the Land and Sea. The history of the this Hindus Holy place began when “Dang Hyang Nirartha” from Majapahit Kingdom in East Java was having “Dharma Yatra” or religious journey to spread and maintaining the bond of Hinduism in Bali.
Most of his journey is taking place on the middle to south west parts of the Island. When he arrived at Beraban Village, he saw a unique Cliffside which shaped like a bird and do a meditation on it for a several times. Local Beraban villagers who saw his wisdom and strong will on meditation started to follow him and implemented his doctrine of Hinduism. Did not satisfied of the things going on, leader of the village was pushing him to leave the village. To encounter the force of the village leader, Dang Hyang Nirartha moved the cliff he used to do meditation at to the middle of the ocean and command the sea water snakes to be its guardian.
After seeing the power of Dang Hyang Nirartha, leader of the village admit his loses and commit to follow his doctrine as well. Finished to apply his Hinduism doctrine at Beraban Village, Dang Hyang Nirartha continue his journey to South West side of the island and “Moksa” or rest in peace at Uluwatu Temple.Bedugul Tour Itinerary Recommendation by Bali Private Tour
