Places of Interest
Singaraja, Bali's administrative center during the Dutch colonial and former Bali’s capital city, is located by the sea. As Bali's chief port in Dutch colonial times, this town received many influences from the foreign traders. Singaraja has a number of Chinese Temples and colonial buildings. The Gedong Kertya Library has a rare collection of Lontar (palm leaf) manuscripts written in Balinese covering many issues including traditional literature, medicinal formulas, black magic and many more. There are a number of old books in English, Dutch and Ancient Javanese (Kawi).

Its harbor has made significant contribution to local development. Singaraja now is way behind Denpasar in terms of development. On the other hand, it is a more pleasant place to visit, with a flavor somewhat more Islamic than Hindu. There are neither traffic jams nor pollution and everything is conveniently located on one main street.
