Nestled in the enchanting landscape of Tabanan, Bali, Jatiluwih Rice Terrace unfolds over 600 hectares, showcasing the marvels of Bali’s Subak irrigation system. Recognized as a UNESCO Cultural Landscape, Jatiluwih is a testament to the profound intertwining of cultural and natural elements.
The name “Jatiluwih” derives from the words “Jati” and “Luwih,” signifying “true” and “good.” This aptly captures the essence of Jatiluwih as a place of undeniable beauty. The expansive rice fields, extending from the foothills of Mount Batukaru to the ocean’s edge, create a unique allure. Beyond its scenic charm, Jatiluwih produces three distinct types of rice—white, brown, and black. White rice serves as a staple for Indonesians, while brown rice, with its low carbohydrate content, is valued for its health benefits in preventing diabetes. Additionally, black rice finds its place in culinary creations, notably in pudding. Jatiluwih’s rice, recognized for its quality, holds global appeal, being exported abroad as a testament to Bali’s agricultural excellence.
Dating back to the 9th century, Jatiluwih has been shaped by traditional Balinese farming practices. The Subak system, an ancient water management system, has sustained the terraced fields, showcasing the island’s agricultural ingenuity.
