Tenganan village


If you happen to visit Candidasa in June, you should make sure to participate in a ceremony known as Mekare-kare. Also known as Perang Pandan, its an annual theatrical fight amongst Balinese men to honor the God of War as well as their ancestors. This tradition is unique to the village of Tenganan, and the event lasts a month long. During this period, all villagers will dress in traditional Tenganan clothing.
