Story of Subak
Subak is a unique and ancient system of irrigation that has been used by the Balinese people for over a thousand years. It is a way of distributing water from the mountains to the rice fields below, and is an essential part of the island’s agricultural tradition.
The story of Subak begins with the Hindu Majapahit Empire, which ruled over much of Indonesia in the 14th century. At that time, Bali was a small kingdom known as the Kingdom of Gelgel, which was ruled by a king named Dalem Waturenggong.
