Pick A Name, Any Name

A small lane or alley is known as a gang, and most of those in Bali lack signs or even names. Some are referred to by the name of a connecting street, eg Jl Padma Utara is the gang going north of Jl Padma.

Meanwhile, some streets in Kuta, Legian and Seminyak have more than one name. Many streets were unofficially named after a well-known temple and/or business place. In recent years there has been an attempt to impose official – and usually more Balinese – names on the streets. But the old names are still common and some streets may have more than one.

Following are the old (un­official) and current official names, from north to south.
