The room will also be inspected directly by Jokowi and inaugurated. Several notes were submitted, said Budi, which had been completed quickly and precisely.

‘If we see that there are white colors here, there are even paintings (around the ceiling) that we used to make soft (black and white), we make the colored carvings soft. I appreciate what Balinese architects have made by giving local touches while still showing something modern, it can be seen from the door in front, it’s very beautiful,” explained Budi.
