Pemecutan Palace

This is one of some palaces opened to visitors located on Jalan Thamrin 2, Denpasar, one of the tourist-packages offered in Denpasar city-tour program. It is about 200 meters from Puputan Badung Park to the West and close to the two traditional markets: Pasar Badung and Pasar Kumbasari. The traditional Balinese-architectured palace was built around 17 th century and nowadays managed by the last King of Denpasar : Ida Cokorda Pemecutan.

The palace is also completed with accommodation for those who want to stay and enjoy the royal atmosphere.

The palace that rebuilt in 1930 is also one of the palaces set up as one of points of interest of Denpasar city-tour program. It is located on Jalan Veteran, right at the heart of Denpasar, inside of which the royal-family temple, "Pemerajan Puri Agung Satria" is located, where some traditional entertainments are often on stage, especially during the temple's anniversary celebration (every 210 days according to the Balinese calendar), or often held on request by some tour-operators.

In front of the temple one can find the Bird market (Pasar Burung) which is also another attraction for visitors and the locals mainly those of animal-lovers.

Instead of Satria and Pemecutan Palace, Jro Kuta Palace is also included into the City-tour package. It is located very closely to the heart of Denpasar city about 300m from Pasar Badung and Pasar Kumbasari, the traditional markets.
