⦿ Pick up by our guide and drive to Tabanan area and drive to Puri Anom Tabanan (Anom means young, new), built in 1800’s, consists of a series of squared-off, walled courtyards – a peaceful maze of gates, alleyways, gardens, family chapels, pavilions and old-style residences in 2-hectare land. The main entrance is dominated by a giant banyan tree, under which is the pura puseh Temple, founded even before the palace was built, commemorating the ancestors of Tabanan’s original settlements.
⦿ Upon arrival, you will be welcomed by the member of the royal family. Sip the fresh coconut while the house staff put a sarong and sash on you, a compulsory dress code to enter the palace. You will have a short introduction to the history of the palace before walking around the complex guided by I Gusti Ngurah Agung Khrisna Putra (Turah) or other Royal family of Puri Anom. Join the house staff in making Canangsari offering to be used for the Purification, and drive north to the ancient temple afterwards.
⦿ Feel the profound experience of "Melukat" or Purification, that aims to cleanse and purify the body and soul in Balinese way. Led by the local Pemangku priest take a dip in the river amid the prayer, chanting and incense smoke. We will escort you with prayer and offering before and after the cleansing.
⦿ Return to Puri Anom where lunch is ready and to be enjoyed with the company of the royal family and later on you can relax around and immerse in the tranquil setting of this heritage site, in the very same place where the King used to meet his people in the past.
