Bali never ceases to impress, not only with its stunning landscapes but also with its impressive social and cultural appeal. Recently, this Island of the Gods has been recognized as one of the provinces with the highest Public Order Index in Indonesia.

Alongside Bali, Riau Province and Mataram City in NTB also scored above seventy in public order index assessments in Indonesia. These assessments measured public order in terms of traffic regulations and population administration.

Acting Governor of Bali, SM Mahendra Jaya, highlighted that Bali possesses a unique spiritual aura, known locally as “taksu,” which provides comfort and inspiration.

“In Bali, it’s called Labda Karya, meaning perfect success. Every positive effort and program here leads to success and achievement,” Mahendra Jaya explained.

Bali’s deeply rooted local wisdom is a significant factor in creating a safe, orderly, and comfortable environment for all. In Balinese social customs, the term ‘Shanti’ signifies peace.

The Balinese lifestyle integrates the culture of maintaining harmony through Tri Hita Karana, which unites harmonious relationships with God, among humans, and with nature.

“To create overall order, a change in mindset is required first,” Mahendra Jaya added.
