Long before it was made a village, Blimbingsari Village was a wilderness that was opened in 1939 by Pastor Made Rungu, Made Regud, and a number of other figures with the permission of Sedahan Agung.

The church building was originally built in a European style, but due to the 1971 earthquake, it was damaged. The building was overhauled and redesigned to adopt the design of Balinese temples and ornaments.

Blimbingsari Village has a unique culture, which is the main attraction of this village. In addition to the unique culture of Blimbingsari Village, it also has the natural beauty of the countryside, which is no less interesting.

Your journey begins when you enter the door of Blimbingsari Village. You will be greeted by the large gate of Blimbingsari Village, often called the Blimbingsari Gate.

The large entrance building was shaped like a gate during the Roman Empire and contains religious symbols.

In this village, there is a church that was built to resemble a temple, in contrast to church buildings in general, which are in a magnificent European architectural style.

The church in Blimbingsari Village is patterned with ornaments and carvings. At every corner of the church building are Balinese carvings. Therefore, the local people before the 1970s called it the “Temple of the Church.” The church in this village is known as the oldest and most unique church in Bali.

If in the Indonesian Muslim tradition, ahead of Eid al-Fitr, there are ketupat and opor, then this is almost the same thing as for Christians in Blimbingsari Village.

Christians in this village use Balinese cultural traditions so strongly. When they celebrate Christmas, they make penjor (memenjor) and Balinese lawar.

Uniquely, when the Christians in this village worship, they wear Balinese clothing, even when they praise, they use Balinese gamelan gong instruments.

The entire series of worship is packaged in Balinese, from singing to sermons.
