Canggu village is currently growing rapidly, many villas have been built in rice fields. The strategic location of Canggu is located on the edge of the beach, this is what makes Canggu have a calm atmosphere.
The history of the name of the village of Canggu is closely related to the similarity with the name Bengawan Canggu in the Brantas River, Port of the Majapahit Kingdom around the XIV century in East Java.
It is said that at that time the Balinese kings were invited to Majapahit which at that time was ruled by Hayamwuruk with his patih Gajahmada and the king of Bali sent his patih named Kyai Petandakan.
When the patih returned to Bali, he was given a keris (dagger) as a talisman to defend Bali, when Kyai Petandakan boarded a boat at Bengawan Canggu (Part of the Majapahit Kingdom), he was told that his keris had fallen into the water while the urangka (the sheath) was still being held some time later with force. In the puja mantra of Kyai Petakankan, the child of the keris automatically returned to its scabbard, so that the keris was named Begawan Canggu. After arriving in Bali he headed to the Gelgel palace and this is where he rested with the dagger so that this village was given the name “Canggu”.
There is a uniqueness in Canggu Village, besides luxury villas and resorts, it turns out that Canggu also has a uniqueness, namely Canggu beach is located across from a stretch of rice fields.
