The program is based on the island of Bali, a predominantly Hindu island in an otherwise Muslim nation. This program is based in Bedulu, once the central hub of the Udayana dynasty (ca. 900–1200 CE) in present-day Bali. Bedulu is small, but fairly spread out, giving the feel of a well-organized and spacious village, with beautiful interior gardens, surrounded by many historical sites.
