Art, Music, Sea, and Sky

On this tour, we drive to Nirarta’s closest town (20 minutes away) the county town of Klungkung, Semarapura (literally the ‘Palace of Love’.

Klungkung is Bali’s smallest regency, though it includes the island of Nusa Penida visible from its shores. Klungkung, twinned with Florence, has banks, shops, and an arts and crafts market.

We will visit Tirta Gosa, part of the royal palace, with its judgement pavillion, painted with Dantesque scenes graphically depicting the consequences of misdeeds, and a small museum and art gallery featuring paintings by the erstwhile Florentine resident of Bali, Amrosi.

From Tirta Gosa and the art market, we drive a few minutes south to Kamasan village, famous for the Kamasan style of traditional painting.

Then, on through the hamlet of Gelgel, once the centre of power and prestige, not only in this area, but in Bali as a whole, and one time home of Dhanghyang Nirarta, to visit the black-stone temple of Klotok, set on a black sand beach opposite Nusa Penida, inspiration to many Balinese Healers.

Our last stop takes us to Tihingan village, home to Gamelan and gong production, approximately 10 minutes away from the town. On the way back, time permitting, we can visit the private museum and collection of the artist Gunaksa. (Approximately 3 to 4 hours)
