Old Bali Photos

Below are the collection of old Bali photos. All the look was totally different with today situation. Enjoy it and feel the spirit.. :-)

Above is Legong Dance in 1940, looks like it was in "jaba" side of a temple. Jaba means the outer area in a temple which have entertainment use but still related to the ritual or ceremony.

People are praying in a temple 1912, we cannot see this kind of fashions or clothes nowadays. The traditional dress always change from time to time.

One of traditional huge Balinese kite, according to my experience this kind of kite is difficult to make. Only talented maker can make it fly very well. We call it "Janggan" kite.

Balinese man in cock fighting area 1912. A gambler's hobby until now. Cock fighting area is a fun place for them.

Gusti Gede Raka in 1937. Dancing is a pride for people at that time. Maybe almost all Balinese are an artist. In this photos we can feel they are very close with nature.

One more artisans. These carvers bring their imagination flows from their heart - brain - hand muscles - then carved to the wood. Of course, with good vision. We still can found this talent until now.

Balinese Hindu Brahmana in Buleleng kingdom 1865.

Gusti Bagus Djelantik and his wife in their palace 1919.

Gusti Ngurah Ketut Djelantik the king of Buleleng kingdom and his assistant.

A palace in Taman Ujung Karangasem regency. This building look the same like today.
