While Batubulan is the village best known for stone carving, workshops and showrooms stretch all the way from Batubulan, through Silakarang to Ubud. It is practical to take in a workshop in Silakarang if circling back to Ubud.
There are several stone carvers to choose from as the road is lined with shops overflowing with traditional statues, contemporary sculptures and wall reliefs, water features and indoor and outdoor accessories. The black volcanic stone is favoured for the more traditional statues and temple adornments whereas the lighter palimanan soft stone, limestone or green lava stone are often popular for more contemporary designs. These days mixed cement, limestone and black sand are also used for certain products.
