History of the kingdom of Tabanan
In Bali, the king’s official residence is called “Puri Agung“. The existence of Puri Agung Tabanan is related with Kenceng Arya, who is believed to have participated with Gajah Mada, when Majapahit Empire conquered the kingdom of Bedulu in Bali in 1343.
Dalem Sri Kresna Kepakisan, who became King of Bali, and was seated in Samprangan, then gave power to Aryan Kenceng to rule Tabanan; the center of the kingdom was Puri Agung, located in Pucangan (Buahan), Tabanan.
On 29 September 1906 sons and brothers of Puri Dangin Tabanan, of Puri Pemecutan Tabanan and of Puri Denpasar Pemecutan Tabanan were exiled to Sasak Lombok: Puputan Bali (massal suicide).
Now descendents of Cokorda Ngurah Ketut live in the Puri Agung of Tabanan. I Gusti Ngurah Putu (Son of Putera Sirarya Ngurah Agung Tabanan, Raja Tabanan the XX) is from Puri Pemecutan in Tabanan.
