Without a doubt, Legong Lasem is the most well-known among other dances in Bali. Many believe this dance was created around Peliatan, Ubud. For decades, it has been a symbol of Bali tourism. The most iconic performance can be seen at Balerung Stage, Peliatan.
It tells a story about the unrequited love of The King of Lasem to a princess, Rangkesari. The dance was inspired when the reigning king, Dewa Agung Made Karna did ascetic in Pura Payogan Agung, Ketewel. He saw angels dance beautifully.
