Tenganan Bali Aga Traditional Village
Tenganan Pegringsingan is a village in the regency of Karangasem in Bali, Indonesia. Before the 1970s was known by anthropologists to be one of the most secluded societies of the archipelago.
Rapid changes have occurred in the village since the 1970s, such as the development of local communications by the central government, the opening up to tourism, the breaking of the endogamic rules.Tourists are attracted to Tenganan by its unique Bali Aga culture that still holds to the original traditions, ceremonies and rules of ancient Balinese, and its unique village layout and architecture. It is known for its Gamelan selunding music and geringsing double ikat textiles.
According to legend, the people of Tenganan Pegringsingan were selected by the god Indra to administer a territory that was conceived in accordance with his divine plan to be a microcosm of the world. They were instructed to use every means to keep it pure and clean. The concept of territorial, bodily and spiritual purity and integrity is of paramount importance in the village.
Another variation of this legend is of the magical horse Uccai Srawa, of King Udayana, king of the 10th century kingdom of Swa Prabhu centered in Pejeng, Bedulu. The horse was to be sacrificed but escaped. The king was distraught and sent search parties out to find him. A group of ten trusted servants, men from the Peneges family were assigned to search the eastern area of the island in the area of Klungkung. The king had promised a huge reward to whoever found Uccai Srawa, however when they did find him, he had died of exhaustion. The king promised the finders that he would gift them the land for as far as the smell of the dead horse could be detected. The men of Peneges dismembered the horse and carried the parts to various places around the place where the horse had died. Unbeknown to the king's men, the Peneges men also slipped a portion of the horses penis into the clothes of the kings soldiers, so the scent of the dead horse followed them everywhere. The Peneges men brought their families to the place called ngetengahang which means middle of the low plains surrounded by hills, now known as Tenganan.
The people of Tenganan Pegringsingan are called Bali Aga—the original Balinese. They descend from the pre-Majapahit kingdom. There are strict rules as to who is allowed to live in the village. Only those born in the village can stay in the village and become full members of the community. There are rules regarding marriage and anyone who marries outside of the village has to leave. A strict protocol regarding marriages among the kin groups have steered the Tengananese through the genetic perils of intermarriage although with increasing contact with the outside world these rules have relaxed somewhat.
