Siwa Nataraja: Bali Unmasked at Puri Kantor Ubud
One of many Royal Households found in the Village of Ubud, Puri Kantor is an adjunct to Bali’s main Palace, built to house a branch of the Royal family. The name “kantor” means “Office” in Indonesia; a name bestowed when the structure was once home to a large pagoda in the middle of a palace pond that locals thought resembled an office building.
Located directly across the road from Puri Saren on Jalan Suweta, the palace is situated at the very center of Ubud and reflecting the architectural details and ornate hand carved reliefs fashioned by generations of talented craftsmen.
