The Organization

The term of Banjar is a word used to refer the traditional organization of Balinese both physically and conceptually. Physically shows the groups of settlement pattern and conceptually contains the regulations among members of the organization which rules the right and obligation within the members. It is this concept that reflects the physical appearance of Balinese settlement pattern. Among ethnics of Indonesia Bali is different in the concept of house architecture and living unit. Most of other ethnics have high house built on wooden poles, Balinese house is directly on the land base made higher around 60 cms from the surrounding. Most Balinese traditional houses have quadrangular base called " bataran " Different from Javanese traditional house normally low or same level as environment. See more
