Batik story: early samples of batik were found since more than 2000 years ago in Far East, the Near East, Central Asia and India. Such fields can be viewed as independently evolving without the influence of business or cultural exchanges. It is more likely, however, that the vessels would travel from Asia through a caravan route to the islands of the Malay Archipelago, and to the west. As early as the Sui Dynasty Batik was taught in China (AD 581-618). The silk batiks were also found and attributed to the Nara era (AD 710-794) in Nara / Japan, in the form of screens. These were probably made by Chinese artists. These trees, animals, flute players, hunting scenes and stylised mountains are adorned with them.

There is no documentation in India about very old cotton batiks, but frescoes depict head-wraps and clothing which could well have been batiks in Ajunta groves. The ruins of the temple of Java and Bali include figurines whose clothing is modeled in a way which suggests batik. In 1677 the exports to Jawa, Sumatra, Persia and Hindustan were significantly based mainly on silk. Linen and occasionally woolens have been carved in Egypt and are the oldest known in the world and dated from the 5th century A.D., with white designs on a blue soil. In Egypt, probably Syria, they were made. For centuries in the Yoruba tribe of southern Nigeria and Senegal, dyeing using cassava and rice pasta was resistant.

Indonesia, particularly Java Island, is the region in which batik reached the highest point. From 1835, in several factories in Holland, the Netherlands brought industrialists from Indonesia to educate Dutch guards. In the beginning of the 1940s, Swiss created batik. Java has been created with the help of a cap for a wax block printing process.

The typical Balinese compound is essentially divided into three parts for various purposes. Using the direction of their traditional compass, holy structures are constructed on a mountain–on the compound wards such as shrines (heads), all the structures of the living quarters (body) are installed in the middle yard and, on the shore, for the cuisine and rest of the land, where waste is usually thrown away. A typical Balinese compound is often enclosed with red bricks, sandstones or odove walls lined with stubble made of stubble grass or thatch roof. There are two niches on both sides of the entrance walls to replace shrines, in which, if the family is a little better financially, they typically create separate shrines, often elaborate ones.

Balinese traditional compound style Behind the entrance is a screen wall of brave evil spirits entering the house to perturb the family and also to avoid unpleasant visual conditions. They usually share their kitchen with their married children if they have to be in the same house. Generally speaking, if your parents are rather successful–married children in another village are provided with a new compound. Water is usually taken from its well, if available, or water from the nearby stream or natural water from the spring. Many farmers drink untreated water, but the government has been conducting a serious health campaign recently–including the public, if the water isn’t hygienically prepared to drink boiled water. They usually use firewood gathered from their backyard or field for fuel.

There is no unique dining room in the typical Balinese compound; they eat when and where they want. They eat their meals in the kitchen most often. The rice barn is used to store the rice for a period of time until more rice needs to be cooked or when cash goes to the local market.

The structure’s roof is made of alang–alang, but it’s also made of zinc. They usually raise their animals like chicken, ducks and cows behind or under the barn. At the middle of the yard in the open pavilion on the right side. This building is called a ceremonial house “Bali Sumaggen.” It is used for a break or sleeping quarter when the house is not used for the ceremony.

History of Batuan Temple But it probably refers to an ancient megalithic tradition where stepped stones were used as meeting places and ritual sites for the worship of ancient spirits. As Batuan has developed into a hub from which Buddhist priests and Brahmans spread to the major Court centers in the south of Bali, the village of Brahman has an unprecedented preponderance. Local people care about and protect the architecture of the temple and its surroundings.

Mas Village was first carved when the Royal Balinese families moved to Ubud and those who wanted jobs tried to sell their goods.

And soon all the best artisans of the Islands migrated to their prospective villages establishing talent-oriented subcultures.

The place to visit in Bali is Mas Village: the artistic landscape has a long history. The product of wood carving in this village possesses the immeasurable and broad dimension of the devotion symbol, the symbolic dimension of everyday life in Balinese society (farm, fisher, intellectual and commercial), the abstract dimension of the imagination of the actor who listens attentively to reality, to dynamics and philosophy of life. The villagers in other tourist landscapes in Bali are similar to villagers, who have experienced the transformation from an agricultural society to a crafting society. Also today it continues to serve society from the business service to the sale of souvenirs for foreign and domestic visitors.

Place Mas Village: strategically situated on the main road from Denpasar to Ubud and reachable from many angles. The major road to Ubud from Denpasar is about 15 km east.
