This 17th-century restored complex houses the Hall of Justice, where the King of Klungkung meted out punishments. The Taman Gili or Garden Pavilion, a former guard's house lies on the premises. Exquisite painted ceilings in wayang style cover these pavilions. The Hall of Justice sports gruesome paintings highlighting what happened to sinners. Above these panels--the story of Bima Swarga, who goes to hell to search and redeem his parents' souls. Taman Gili's panels show a wedding, the story of Sutasoma slaying a dragon and pictographs of horoscopes.

The entire complex is known as Taman Gili, but the name Kerta Gosa is better known. Balinese culture has its own system called adat, meaning traditional law, but for serious offenses Kerta Gosa was the end of the line. Kerta Gosa is located right in the center of Klungkung next to the main roundabout. The gardens of Taman Gili, in which Kerta Gosa sits, were built in 1710. The most impressive thing is the decorated ceiling containing terrifying artwork depicting good vs. evil.

Candidasa the view of 30th years ago of Kuta

Located on the northeastern coast of Bali, is the small village of Candidasa. A tranquil coastal area nestled between the Lombok Strait to the east and mountains to the west, Candidasa is within close proximity to many historical landmarks of Bali including Bali's mother temple, Pura Besakih, Tenganan (the aboriginal people of Bali) as well as the ferry terminal to Lombok. Some of the best diving and snorkeling areas in Bali are also within the Candidasa area. As Candidasa has become more popular with day-trippers, the demand for accommodations and eatery places has grown to wide selection that ranges from star rated properties to simple homestays. All in all, Candidasa is a great place to go for a few days of relaxation.

History Notes:
Candi Dasa is the name of a temple on the side of the road to Amlapura / Karangasem. From the ancient relics in the temple, Candi Dasa can be dated back to the 11th century, although there are no complete data on the history of the temple as such. The words "DASA" means ten. It refers to the 10 holy teachings of the TRI PITAKA, the Buddhist scripture. It is also a place to worship Shiva.
Candi Dasa is a temple of Hinduism and Buddhism in one. The fresh water pool in front of the temple which flows into the sea adds beauty to the scenery.

In recent years Candi Dasa has develoved into a popular tourist resort, yet it is unspoiled, peaceful and a pleasant retreat from the hustle and bustle of today's crowded cities.
It could be said to be a retreat to the "last paradise"...

Shoping Mania At Sukawati Art Market

Spending a nice holiday on the island of Paradise is full of endless experience. This tiny island has so many treasures and challenging adventure to explore. See the unique rice terraces in Tegalalang or Jatiluwih with its serenity and beauty on the rice fields. Or follow and inhale fresh air along the rapid on the river with a wide choice of different rapid. Another activity you will enjoy is an original "shopping adventure" to hunt souvenirs and the like in the art market. 

One of art markets that are already popular among visitors is Sukawati art market. Sukawati road-facing market located in the Gianyar Regency has a strategic position as it is passed
through during the tour to some destinations to the east. Sukawati art market is close to the village of Celuk, the center of gold & silversmiths. You can drop in after watching barong and keris dance performance in the morning. It can be accessed through bemo transport, tour bus or taxi.

It is just like a myriad of art shops that offers wide range of products. Simply one stop shopping. Many items sold in Kuta or other areas originate from here and are considerably
cheaper if bought here. One outlet may provide more than one item, like garments, souvenirs, paintings (unframed), basketry, colorful kites and so on.

Buying giveaways to commemorate the holiday has to be a must. So take advantage the holiday time to find out something memorable on the art market of Sukawati. This market is very
unique as it is already open in the early morning and visited by both domestic and foreign visitors. It is very close to other destinations in the Gianyar Regency.

A good place to explore the shopping experience in a natural way, get in touch with common people and see how the locals go about the art of negotiation. Yes, shopping is also an art of
experience. On the one hand, you may enjoy many kinds of art products all in one spot. It reflects the diversity of local art and crafts and the creativity of its people.

You will get a new experience in the 'art of buying'. You must bargain the price eventhough the vendor offers you a "morning price." Meaning especially low, to start off the trading day with a few sales already and make the day a successful one.

It does not mean you have to accept it as it is, it's not a fixed price. If you are good at bargaining you will get the best price you can afford and the vendor keeps "smiling and thanking you". If they don't smile anymore, you know his cost is higher than your offer. Good at bargaining is a bit more than insisting on a price. You need to provide a logical reason why your offer is so low and still should be accepted.

Nusa Lembongan Beach the Dream Beach

Nusa Lembongan is approximately 8 square kilometres in size and is one of three neighbouring islands, the others being much larger Nusa Penida and tiny Nusa Ceningan (also covered by this article). The three islands are separated from Bali by the Badung Strait.

Fast becoming one of Bali's most popular attractions, this island paradise is a world away from the hassle and hectic pace of South Bali. There are no hawkers, no traffic, magnificent scenery and this is the perfect place to put your feet up and relax. Main activities include surfing, diving and snorkeling. Some tourists may find the island a little slow after the pace of southern Bali.

The water is some of the clearest you can find and vivid aqua blue in color. Most areas aroudn the island are good for diving and snorkeling with abundant marine life and live coral. Surfing can get a bit crowded but the waves are good. There are several white sand beaches away from the main centres which are virtually never rarely crowded. There is a flourishing and well established seaweed farming industry here and many visitors find it interesting to learn about this.

There are two main beach areas which have traditionally attracted visitors. Jungut Batu in the north is the bigger of the two with a myriad of hotels, restaurants and cheap eateries and has traditionally attracted backpackers, families and surfers. In more recent times, the hillside to the south of Jungut Batu (the Bukit) has been developed and attracted higher level hotels. The views from the Bukit are second to none on Nusa Lembongan. Sunsets are best viewed along the main Jungut Batu beachfront.

Mushroom Bay to the south-west of Jungut Batu is a quaint, attractive and sheltered bay. It is a nice spot after 3PM when the day trippers have gone home and it has a great white sandy beach along with some cozy little restaurants that line the beach. Further south the lesser known beaches either side of the Devil's Tear outcrop are increasingly drawing more visitors.

Padang-padang Beach Beautiful Perfectly Quiet Beach

Bali has numerous beautiful beaches. Padang-padang beach is the one quiet beach and clear sea water in Kuta. Located at Uluwatu. With only 25 minutest from Kuta, use the road towards Nusa Dua, turn off to Uluwatu road, past the Dreamland turn off, right hand turn towards Bingin, down hill to Padang Padang, to access the surf you have to walk past large chunks of lava rock and make your way to the right end of the beach. Directions: Bypass towards Nusa Dua, Uluwatu turn off, past Dreamland turnoff, right hand turn towards Bingin, down hill to Padang Padang. The large coral shelf is uncovered for the most part during low tide and is not recommended for surfing. Padang Padang has a beautiful wave but you have to be an advanced surfer to come here. The jagged reef is sometimes refered to as 'the cheese grater'.
People were friendly at Padang Padang and I think it would be a good place for a relaxing afternoon.
