History of bali

Bali was inhabited since the early prehistoric times; 3000-year-old stone tools and vessels have been found here. In ancient Bali, nine Hindu sects existed and their culture was greatly influenced by Chinese, Indian and particularly Hindu culture. In 1512, the first European contact was made and was followed by the Dutch in 1860. The Dutch demanded the people to surrender, which caused a lot of the locals to fight and lay down their lives for the island. During World War II, Imperial Japan occupied Bali. The people resented this more and a ‘freedom army’ was formed. The Japanese left but the Dutch returned and included Bali as one of the districts of the State of East Indonesia.\n\nIn 1963 the eruption of Gunung Agung killed thousands and forced the people to accept transmigration to other parts of the country. Two years later, due to attempted communist coup, Bali witnessed terrifying anticommunist killings in Indonesia which was put down by General Suharto whose 'New Order' government allowed Bali to establish relations with western countries. Soon, tourism boomed and lead to many positive changes in Bali. The happy smiling people prove that through everything, they held on to their unique culture.
