Let's See Jembrana Regency Travel Guides.

A traditional music called jegog is combination of the lovely tune of bambo gamelan combined with deep resonating sound in high sophisticated rhythmic patterns. The bamboo instruments have become special characteristics of Jembrana regency, which is located in the west side of Bali Island. While traditional music in the other regions of Bali shares similarities, Jogeg of Jembrana promotes a very different nuance, which gives a strong impression to its audience.

The Jembrana regency with Negara as its capital city occupies an are of 841.8 km2, of which a large part is forest area. The forest area of Jembrana promoting wonderful tropical wildlife is known as Bali's green carpet in the west, and protected by law as West Bali National Park.

Neighboring with East Java the wildlife and forestry in west Bali are similar to those in Banyuwangi, East Java. The forest of teak trees and palm trees in East Java seem to be extended to western part of Bali before one finally embrace the true Balinese natural life at the borders between the regency of Jembrana and Tabanan.

A major part of the population in Jembrana which is approximately 220,000 consists if migrants from the island of Java and the brought with them Javanese culture to the island. Some of them are Islamic followers. Comparing to other regions in Bali, it is very possible that the close distance between Jembrana and East Java separated only by the Bali strait has caused sort of acculturation. Although there are strong influences from Javanese culture, Jembrana also saves important part in the course of temples on the south beaches of Jembrana, like Pura Perancak, Pura Rambut Siwi and some others show us that Jembrana played an important part when the Hindu religion reached Bali from Java at the beginnings of history in Bali.
