Renting one of five traditional stone bungalows in the sumptuous royal courtyard is still quite an experience, and every night the palace comes alive with the sound of Gamelan music as Balinese dances are performed just across the wall from Puri Saren Agung. « less

The family that lived and controls the area is the heir of Ida Dalem Sukawati.Peliatan Royal Palace is where the heirloom and amulets of Dalem Sukawati is stored and closely guarded.in 1931, supported by Puri Agung Peliatan, the first Balinese performing arts group was heading for a Europe tour, upon invitation by the Queen of Netherlands to represent the Dutch East Indies for an art exhibit in Paris, France. The group, Sekaa Gong Gunung Sari is still actively performing today at the royal assembly hall (ancak saji) of Puri Agung Peliatan every Saturday at 19:30in the spirit to preserve and develop the finest of Balinese performing arts, Puri Agung Peliatan also featuring two other Legong performance every Monday and Wednesday, as well as Kecak performance every Thursday, all started at 19:30palace tours can be arranged by contacting the palace, featuring an insight on the palace history, and a chance to meet the royal family that still live within the compound and has an active role within the local community and Balinese government alikewhile many tourism exposed sub-palaces in the region claimed to have a 'king' (and sometimes caused by misrepresented tourism guidebooks, publications, and poor English translation of the word 'pengelingsir' : 'Lord') Peliatan Royal Palace is the only governing palace within the region during the time of pre-republic era, therefore having a lineage of ruling Kings from the warrior class, and acts as the main palace for the satellite palaces located within its borders and their LordsThe surrounding area of the palace, Peliatan village, is rich in various artforms and excels in painting and sculpture. Sadly, many travellers passed by Peliatan and went straight to the town of Ubud in their pursuit for original masterpieces. While it is true that 'Peliatan village' is within the modern-day 'Ubud district' borders, the relation between the two is more appropriately viewed as: "Within the district of Ubud, Peliatan is the center of classic Balinese arts, where most of the maestro lived, and where their successors are actively preserving and developing the art and style. « less
