History of Bali
Archaeologists believed that Bali, Indonesia was
inhabited since the primordial age where likes of the Homo Sapiens were
thought to exist. The first race was said to have arrived in Bali
around 3000 BC as they traveled through mainland Asia before reaching
the archipelago of Indonesia. In close proximity to the village of
Cekik which is located in the western part of the island, stone tools
were discovered that actually dated back to the period earlier
By 100 BC, natives from India began to establish themselves in Bali,
Indonesia. Not for long, these foreigners contributed much to the
agricultural system of the island. The complex irrigation method
locally dubbed as "subak" was developed in order for rice to grow.
Until this juncture, there are obvious traces seen around Bali which
were largely influenced by the cultural traditions and religious
practices brought by the Indians that settled in Indonesia many years
