The design and spatial layout of the buildings of Teganan are still original and thus comply with customary rules regarding architecture giving this village a unique appearance. Tenganan also has a distinctive traditional attire made from geringsing woven fabric. The people of Tenganan and other Bali Aga villages have different beliefs than the rest of the Balinese. For example the people of Tenganan do not recognize caste.

 Tenganan village also has a unique tradition known as the pandanus war named for the thorny pandanus leaves with which the participants are armed as this ceremonial yet visceral ‘war’ every June.

Before the pandanus war begins, residents of Tenganan perform a ngelawang procession that involves moving around the village pleadingfor alvation. (BTN/ocha)
