Gianyar,The Centre Of Tourist Interest In Bali

GianyarThe Centre Of Tourist Interest In BaliMost visitors to Ubud  have no idea that they ar in the  regency  or country of Gianyar  nor that Bali province  is divided into eight counties  each with substantial autonomy  from  the government at the island capital of Denpasar.Yet  for the visitor to cross the invisible  border  into Gianyar is to enter  a distinctive world or architecture and tradition where  the richness and antiquity of Balinese culture  is celebrated every day.

The Director of Tourism in Gianyar,Agung Ary,was born in Ubud with links to the royal palace and his pride in the county of his birth is deep,infectious and inspiring.What he says  is all the more  remarkable  for the matter of fact way in which he says it.’’Gianyar has many  tourists objects and destinastion.’’he begins like the good  bureaucrat he is but then amzes by reeling off an apparently endless list of attractions-“religion, ceremonies, culture, art, performances, festival, palaces, temples, museums, galleries,Taman Nusa Indonesia in miniature park,adventure tourism such as white water rafting,cycling,trekking,Bali Zoo Park,Bali Elephant Safari Park,Bali Bird Park.”

‘Then there are the daily lives of our people:their villages and their homes where visitors are always  welcome to look and their work in the fields.Every village is different and has its own special days and ceremonies.”Some village have become’art village’ such as Celuk, Mas, Sukawati, Kemenuh, Payangan, Kedewaton, Sayan, Lod Tunduh, Nyuh Kuning, Pejeng, Bedulu,Tampaksiring and,of course,many artists live there”. “What visitors derive from Gianyar depends on what they want but there s something for almost everybody.”

The fame of the art and culture centre  of Ubud  develoved  around painting a century ago and there are many  serious  artists living in the  regency.”Gianyar is the artistic soul of Bali .We make a festival  of art out life. Even our  priests are artists . Once you come here you feel the spiritual power  and have a good feeling yourself.”It’s hard to doubt him whent he says softly that in his opinion”Gianyar should be the centre of tourist interest in Bali.” Laughing he adds:”we even have a beach,at keramas,on the east coast,for surfing its one of the best beaches in the  world with good waves where Oakley holds international championships.”

To the people of Gianyar ,the areas around the Pakerisan  and petanu Rivers are the  places where  Balinese  civilization began.Here can be found the oldest subak irigated wet rice fields in Bali  dating back a thousand years  and recognized by UNESCO as a World heritage Landspace.The life-giving waters of the Gianyar river valley flow south  from the great crater lake of Batur , a favourite destinations for tourists who may  never have seen an active  volcano as well as a favourite dawn adventure  to climb Mount Batur and watch the sun rise out of the night dark  to bathe world  in golden light.The rivers Ayung and wos flow together  in Ubud  at Campuhan  marking  the spiritually  charged spot discovered 1,200 yearsn ago by the  Indian holy man Marharishi Markandya and marking  the beginnings  of Ubud.(BTN/Ist)
