Bayung Gede village belongs to ancient village in Bali whose charms remain to be preserved to date. Then, Bayung Gede village was developed into a new tourism village approximately in 2010. According to an expert, Thomas A Reuters, Bayung Gede poses an ancient village becoming the parent of a number of other ancient villages in Bangli like Penglipuran, Sekardadi, Bonyoh and several others.

There is a unique tradition preserved at this village. Residents who have just got married are banned from entering into the home yard and not considered the residents of the Bayung Gede village before paying off the tumbakan (a kind of dowry) handed over to the village in the form of two cows and undergo asceticism (fasting). The brides are also required to conduct a Penyekeban procession by living in a small hut at the end of the village.

Not only that, Bayung Gede village also has a unique tradition in terms of burying the placenta (umbilical cord) of the newborns. If the baby’s umbilical cord is generally buried in the ground, residents at local village have a tradition to place it in coconut shell and hung on a tree at the special cemetery located behind the village. The tradition of treating placenta in the coconut shell has been going on for hundreds of years ago.
