Exploring The Rice Terrace at Jatiluwih

If you ever heard about ‘subak’, it is the biggest achievement of Balinese culture in agriculture. Balinese put the rice field as part of the daily life system. From ‘subak’ they learn about life, about tolerance, about social responsibility, about unity, about nature

conservation, and about their responsibility in nature and human relationship. Subak is the name of water management (irrigation) system for paddy fields on Bali island, Indonesia. For Balinese, irrigation is not simply providing water for the plant’s roots, but water is used to construct a complex, pulsed artificial ecosystem.[1] Paddy fields in Bali were built around water temples and the allocation of water is made by a priest. Exploring paddy fields in Jatiluwih means to learn, how Balinese live in harmony with nature.
