Desa Pedawa or Pedawa village is an authentic Bali village known by Balinese as the Bali Aga or Bali Mula. This village is inhabited by native people in Bali before the arrival of Majapahit Hindu (Siva-Buddha) people. This is proved by the existence of historical heritage in the Megalithic era in the form of two sarcophagus in this village area. Also It was found that Pedawa village did not have a caste system (social hierarchy), unlike villages in Bali island.
Bandung Rangki and Sri Dandan are authentic shacks from Pedawa village. Bandung Rangki is a shack that has as many as 18 pillars, and Sri Dandan is a shack that has 16 pillars. The roof structure is a bamboo roof structure and roof covering material in the form of bamboo shingles and dried reeds or Satintail grass. Walls of buildings and openings in the form of woven walls of bamboo and clay and Floor material made of clay too.
Before this village was named Desa Pedawa, the name given to this village was Mount Tambleg, which meant innocent people. However, then the name changed to Gunung Sari which means fertile area. After experiencing a change of name twice, finally the name Pedawa which means Panjak Dewa was used as the name of this village since the 15th century. The indigenous inhabitants of the village of Pedawa, who are called Bali Aga people, believe that their ancestors came from the Lake Tamblingan area in Buleleng Regency, borders with Tabanan Regency.
