Traditional architecture of Bali that we know until now is vernacular architecture that has been grown and developed in the midst of the society. Various studies have been done to maintain the culture of Bali including architecture as tourist’s attraction activities. Some of which have been conducted since the Colonial period as "Baliseering", in the New Order administration as "Tourism-Culture", and n the 21st century as "Ajeg Bali with one objective is to preserve the existence of Balinese culture. At present, tourism industry has become the mainstay commodity to increase the welfare of its people (including Puri family). These conditions resulted in the adaptation of architectural features, such as: building function, spatial arrangement, and shape of the building. These adaptations are coupled with the efforts to maintain the existence of needs-based architecture. Puri is a castle that was once played the role as the center of government in the era of the kingdom in Bali. Puri was commonly found in the urban and rural areas, which has the spirit and urgent role in society up to the present moment. Some tourist activities in the castle among others are: royal wedding, royal dinner, art performance and exhibition, guest house. This is a qualitative case study focusing on Puri as an architectural object in the past with an attempt to maintain its existence in the present and in the future. The maintenance of traditional/local architecture of Bali is particularly related to social and cultural development of Balinese people. Furthermore, this study is expected to provide the path for the development of social, cultural, and traditional architecture studies in Indonesia.
