Peliatan Village

Peliatan is best known for its legong - a graceful dance traditionally performed by two pre-pubescent girls in glittering costumes. Indeed, the first Balinese dance troupe to travel abroad was a legong group from Peliatan that performed at the Paris Exhibition in 1931 under the leadership of the late Anak Agung Gede Mandera (affectionately known as “Gung Kak”) a man who excelled in both music and dance.

The group’s performances created a sensation, it was then, for example, that French actor Antonin Artaud first witnessed the Balinese barong. Peliatan is also a village of carvers and painters. Everywhere you go you see orchids, fruits, frogs, ducks and birds being fashioned out of wood. These are all of course for tourists.
