History of Peliatan Royal Palace

As well as other palaces in Bali, the Peliatan Royal Palace has existed for centuries. This sacred palace was first built in the 17th century. Ubud back then was a verdant jungle full of hundred years of trees, blooming plants, and green rice fields.

Nonetheless, at that time, there had been family staying around in Peliatan. Most of the people live in Jungut, Taman, and Bantuyung. The people back then made the traditional wooden house in the forest. The house was called as Kuwu-Kuwu.

The War

The community lived in peace under the leadership of Sri Aji Maha Sirikan, the king of Sukawati. The leadership of Sri Aji Maha Sirikan was running well. In the latest years of the 17th century, the king instructed the troops to protect Ubud. Unfortunately, a civil war happened during the expanse of Sukawati kingdom’s authority.

The king’s cousin’s rebellion creates a war between the villages in Peliatan. To protect the king’s reign, the king then sent the princes to a safe place. One of the princes is Tjokorde Ngurah Tabanan who was sent to Peliatan.

At that time, the palace was built to be the residence of the prince. Although there was a conflict between Peliatan and Mengwi, the palace remains strong and safe. Today, the Peliatan Royal Palace has gone to the child of the first king. The current king is called Cokorda Gde Putra Nindia. Together with the contribution of the locals have maintained the palace and Peliatan community in harmony.

Boma carving is the symbol of the loss of Sad Ripu within someone’s soul. Sad Ripu itself means six enemies in someone’s soul. Guiding the person in a bad direction. Hence, once someone gets into the palace, the soul will only be full of good tendencies.
