Unlike traditional village of Bali Aga, Tenganan Pegringsingan Village has a unique culture inherited from its ancestors. To strengthen its resilience, then local policies have been established which are passed down from generation to generation. The fundamental challenge is maintaining the existence of culture to face the globalization era. The description of this article is based on information through observation, interviews with community leaders and cultural observers of the Tenganan Pegringsingan Village. Not all cultures can be preserved due to the demands of tolerance from the influence of the social dynamics which have emerged lately. Finally, the local policy in preserving the culture of Tenganan Pegringsingan village has a dilemma, on the one hand, it maintains the mandate of its ancestors, but on the other hand, it cannot avoid the social dynamics due to the globalization era, so that there are some cultures undergoing change.
