The Puri Singaraja Royal Palace, also referred to locally with various names such as Puri Agung Singaraja after the town and Puri Gede Buleleng after the kingdom, is the home of North Bali’s late ruler, Ki Gusti Anglurah Pandji Sakti. The palace was built in the 17th century and represents a significant part in the region’s rich, cultural heritage. The palace is a primary stop-off on tours to Singaraja Town, with the Gedong Kirtya ancient Balinese manuscripts museum close by.
The Puri Singaraja Royal Palace is located on Jalan Mayor Metra in the centre of town, and you can drop in anytime for a palace tour. Inside, you will discover beautiful Balinese architecture through the custodian family’s main living quarters, the unique network of interconnecting courtyards and the royal family’s shrines and temples. If you are lucky, you might have the royal family’s elder, Anak Agung Ngurah Brawida, as your host, who is fluent in English. He will also often proudly show you around the palace quarters, including the family’s old ‘lontar’ manuscript or chronicles.
