Article below covered a majority part of Banjar District :-
North Bali basically perserves the oldest villages of Bali which is in the present time still being preserved and acknowledged as the older tradition and keep with them the history of Bali until the new society of Bali become mixed together, especially around Desa Banjar are many older villages of Bali, which is believed to have been earlier to settle Bali compared to other lowland residents.
Those villages such as Sidatapa, Tigawasa, and Pedawa village. It is not considered old is Tamblingan village, although the fact that this village is already recorded in a king charter dated 11th century. It is probably the location of Tamblingan is on the trade route between south and North Bali, so this village has been developing faster compared to those, so their oldness is not visible, or simply forgotten.
Beside as the first area that announce physical battle against the Dutch North Bali also has unique places interesting to the travelers. Banjar Town is one of the most important for history of North Bali from pre-history up to the era where Indonesian struggle for Independence. This administrative area of Kabupaten Buleleng has some places of interest that have been well known by the visitors to Bali.
Tigawasa village itself is a field research for Archaeology, due to the finding of ancient remains of human activities from stone and metal ages. Many excavations have been organized by the department of Archaeology of Udayana University which throw light on the distribution of people in Bali starting metal age and continues until the arrival of Hindu tradition.

Hello Ally! Interesting place, very fine flags, superb car (bike?), wonderful scene, good point of view and capture. Nice natural colours. Original frame. Well done!
smarcell (19963) 2010-05-17 0:18
I think it is a little bit confusing. Too many things in the frame. The colourful flags, the buildings. and the vehicle is barely visible among all these things.
The sight wanders around before finding a place to look at.

a very well composed impression with a fantastic perspective. The light and the colors are wonderful. I like the festive atmosphere that you have captured but most of all I love the cart that plays an important role composition wise. My compliments, also for the interesting note!

The flags are framing well the road. The cyclist is taking my eyes toward the houses in the background which is giving depth and perspective to the composition. The afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Good angle with the road and people, good effect with these colourful flags, nice light for your shot.
s_lush (16134) 2010-05-18 22:58
This Indonesian town is very well decorated and looks nice due to its traditional architecture and lush tropical vegetation around. The bicyclist at the center of the picture shows that the economic activity is under way there even on holidays. Excellent architectural and daily-life photo!
rodgerg (55767) 2010-05-18 23:18
A POV very well selected for this shot with the way which invite to discovery. An iamge rich in various details with a pleasant harmony in the colors. The red and white flag arise very well in this harmony and give an interesting vertical graphic effect.
subhendu_bagchi (25973) 2010-05-19 1:05
nice capture of this road with the transport. Nice daily life scene. But the most attractive point of this shot I think the red-white flags . Nice colours and fine depth. Very well composed shot. Tfs.
mafegan (8624) 2010-05-19 4:18
The red and white flags are turning just a regular daily life scene into a stunning photo. Much detail with the man cycling over the bridge. Tfs, Marlene

C'est une scène de la vie quotidienne bien photographiée avec ce vélo surchargé qui entre dans le village décoré de drapeaux pour la fête nationale.
mauro61 (52631) 2010-05-20 2:54
bella questa scena con il passaggio del carro sul ponte .
Spiccano le bandiere della festa nazionale e si respira l'atmosfera di calma di cui parli nella nota.
ottima la luce,
danos (89623) 2010-05-22 3:10

Have a nice weekend,Danos

the flags are really eye catching here. the view of the place is very interesting and very busy place I would think.
Never been there and I think it is quite interesting to look at a different angle of a place.
A good view too- especially the distance buildings.
adramad (39770) 2010-05-24 12:55
Great POV chosen in this beautiful composition, the colors of the flags provides great strength to the image, nice corner with all those houses among the abundant vegetation. Good bright, colorful and full picture details. TFS.
Have a nice week.
gunbud (34066) 2010-05-30 17:46
The festive occassion has found good weather for the celebration.
What a lovely sky you have here that contrast so brilliantly with the lush green countryside.
The flags look very impressive in this gentle breeze.

I liked you visiting to my gallery and notice it only at late hours. I go one to tired and yesterday seeing my defeated state have opened the game mahjong and let it at the middle. Today I ended it and played for a while chess with the computer and at the beggining my queen was eaten. Anyway it was the first time I played chess with my computer rival. The second hollday term have begun. I will give you futher details at the right time in appropriate private message. The photo set is another amzing view of a rural village in festive preparations. I think to be entering into the village by one of the sides. A rich rural country as I ever see it. Such a place visted by a trekearth member. My kindest regards wishing a good week-end. Your friend. Tomi
