SINGARAJA / BULELENG REGENCY
 
In eastern Buleleng you will find something completely different. East of Singaraja are the scenic Sawan and Sudaji rice plains, producing Bali's best rice. The area around here has a unique baroque temple architecture best known for reliefs dating from colonial times. In Sangsit, where boats still shuttle to the Kangean islands to the north, you must not miss the Beji temple. Its gates and shrines are finely carved with figures of serpents, Garudas, demon heads and floral decorations. The inland town of Sawan is a traditional center for dance and music. It has simple accommodation and river views rivaling those in southern Bali. One of the few remaining gamelan makers on Bali has its workshop there.

From Sawan, a narrow road heads south towards Bedugul through coffee and clove plantations and mountain landscapes. When you. are returning to the coastal road, stop at the Pura Meduwe Karang temple in Kubutambahan on the northern coast. The carvers here, besides making sculptures of classical heroes, have also integrated the Dutch presence in their reliefs. The most famous shows a Dutchman riding a bicycle with wheels made of flowers. This is said to represent Nieuwenkampf, a Dutch artist who first explored Bali at the beginning of the century. He travelled around the island by bike, stopping to make sketches of the temples and religious events he witnessed.
