Singaraja - Trade, Culture and Religion

Experience the former Balinese Capital during a very interesting Vespa-Tour

We pick you up at your hotel. Together we visit the former Bali capital Singaraja.

 

Until now Singaraja conserves the character of a capital. We pass generous wide streets with big trees and flowers at the roadsite.

There are still historic dutch buildings to be seen - a relict of over 300 years Bali has been a dutch colony.

 

In particular these buildings are not too far from the old harbour. We will visit one of this buildings and potentially have a chat with the owners

Singaraja has been the domicile of the King of Buleleng, which is until now the name of the district in northern Bali. The King´s palace can be visited.

To some extent it was converted

into the city-museum of Singaraja.

Part of the Palace is a museum for Balinese "books".

 

They are not books made of paper like the books you know, but the texts and illustrations are scratched into dried lontar leaves and afterwards coloured with an "ink" made of candlenuts.

When this museum was opened just some Balinese visitors dared to step inside the new museum. The majority was afraid of the mighty magic, written down in the books stowed here. You don´t need to share these fear. In fact you will get insights into the outstanding Balinese culture.

Singaraja, as the most important harbour Balis in former times, always has been melting pot of cultures and religions. Until today Hindus, Moslems, Buddhists and Christians coexist peacefully. A Chinese Buddhist temple at the harbour give witness of this coexistence. Also members of other religious groups pray here.

The spacious bazar in the center of the city is the evident proof of Singaraja´s importance as a trading place. We´ll spend some time here. Maybe you can achieve a bargain....
