Anak Agung Ngurah Ugrasena of Buleleng
Because the Dutch already put direct rule in Buleleng in 1872 after the deposition of the then monarch the relgious influence of the west also was more strong than elsehere on Bali. The last Raja of Buleleng became protestant Christian, but some of his familymembers remained Hindu, like the present dynastychief of Buleleng, who is a grandson of the last raja. The dynasty still has not decided fully, that he wil be the new king of Buleleng, because they want, that he must proff himself as a good and non-egoistic monarch.
He is doing much into tourism and is f.i. chief of the local board of tourism.
When the monarchies of Bali were restored in 1937, the greatgrandfather of the present dynastychief was put on the throne.He already was ruling then for 8 years as semi-independent monarch of Buleleng.
