This street gallery was found at Tenganan village, Karangasem - Bali, Indonesia.

 

Tenganan is one of several ancient villages in Bali, situated at Manggis district, Karangasem which is usually called 'Bali Aga'. There are some versions of story telling us the history of Tenganan village. Some say that the word Tenganan was derived from the word "tengah" or "ngatengahang" which means "move to the inner area". This derivation of word was having a relation with the movement of the villagers from the seaside to a rural area, in which the position of this village is in the middle of hills, that are western hill (Bukit Kauh) and eastern hill (Bukit Kangin).
