The Campuhan of Ubud
The elegance of Balinese architecture and hospitality flourish at Hotel Tjampuhan, located just west of Ubud. Here, Prince Tjokorda Gde Agung Sukawati and Walter Spies began Pita Maha in 1934, an association that brought Ubud painting and artistic talent into the forefront of world art. Spies house, the original guest house of the Ubud royal family, hosted this historic meeting and is here still, on the hotel's grounds, overlooking the banks of the sacred Oos Campuhan river. Hotel Tjampuhan and Spa remains a source of inspired artistic activity since its founding in the heyday of the 1928's world traveling.
Unsurprisingly, this setting also inspired Bali visionary holy man Resi Markandya to build the mother temple complex Besakih, the center or worship and ceremony for all of Bali. You can be witness to the living spirit of Balinese devotion to Gods and ancestors, symbolized in the daily offerings made of rice, fruit, flowers and incense in the resident Tjampuhan temple.
