Google translation

Puri Anom Tabanan was founded during the reign of Ida I Gusti Ngurah Ngurah Agung Tabanan, the 19th king of Tabanan, who ruled in 1810 – 1843. He ordered his young son (Anom) to build a new palace just north of the royal castle (at the former location of Puri Mas, Puri Raja Pemade I Gusti Ngurah Anom) so it is possible that led to the palace was later referred to as Puri Anom which can be interpreted as the Puri Muda or also the new Puri.
