Ubud Bali History

Ubud was known since the 8th century, when at that time Hindu priests from Java, RsiMarkandya came to Bali to meditate on Campuhan Hill which is not far from the center of Ubud today. The name Ubud is taken from the ancient Balinese language, which is ‘ubad’ which means ‘medicine’.

This is because at that time Campuhan was the center of natural medicine. The word Ubad then slowly changed to Ubud until now. It was only in 1900, the citizens of Ubud asked for freedom in the Netherlands to carry out all artistic activities. 1930 became the beginning of the development of art in Ubud with an art performance in the city. Then, Balinese art was known to foreign countries.
