Launcher is the local word referring to bomb script manuscript. This Library, established in 1928, has manuscripts in addition to transcriptions on metal plates and books that deal with philosophies, sciences, magic and languages. Despite this unique template, this library has established itself as a major resource of the Hindu culture of the island of Bali. Some of these manuscripts also collect prized illustrations. These volumes have been sourced from all over the island. Even though the museum is virtually unknown among tourists it is quite popular among foreign students. It is thought this is the only library of its kind in the world.

  • Actually I visited the Buleleng Museum. They're located at the sam location. Gedong Kirthya is museum that collect LONTAR while Buleleng Museum collect the art and tradition of Buleleng. These museum have a beautiful garden. Too bad, some room in the museum are used as office of the Social Service. The collection is quiet complete from the aspect but not a lot of collection. First you can see the car from Mr Gusti Ketut Puja which is the first Governor of Litle Sunda in the colonial era. Beside the museum there also 4 sarcophagus (historical coffin from stone) from the village around Buleleng region. Inside there are photo, art like paint and wayang. Daily live tools from historical era. There also Kapitan Lim saving box. One beautiful paint of I Gusti Panji Sakti founder of Buleleng.

  • Great museum! A place you must visit. The staff was so knowledgeable showing us and reading the information on a few of the oldest scripts written.

  • This is not the place! The Library "Gedung Kirtya" is 450 m soutwest from here right next to the museum! Please correct!

  • Tidak banyak tempat wisata yang bisa dilihat di kota Singaraja. Salah satu yang direkomendasikan beberapa orang adalah Museum Gedong Kertya. Bangunannya sangat sederhana dan kecil, sampai hampir saja terlewat saat saya melintas. Papan nama yang dipasang tidak terlihat jelas dari arah jalan.Museum ini menyimpan banyak naskah dan buku kuno Bali dan Lombok yang dikumpulkan dari segala lapisan masyarakat kemudian diseleksi dan dibuat salinannya. Namun demikian, ada pula naskah dan buku asli yang tersimpan disini. Naskah tersebut ditulis di daun lontar, satu cara penulisan di masa lalu yang dapat bertahan lama.Saat saya berkunjung, banyak remaja yang sedang tekun membaca naskah lontar sementara petugas sibuk merapikan naskah yang berserakan di meja depan. Sepertinya mereka sedang melakukan pemeliharaan. Pengunjung bebas memasuki ruangan-ruangan museum. Saya masuk ke salah satu ruangan penyimpanan naskah yang terdiri dari rak susun berisi kotak-kotak kayu yang dapat menyimpan lebih dari 1 naskah lontar. Di sisi lain ruangan terdapat meja bertutup kaca yang menyimpan buku-buku kuno.Lokasi museum Gedong Kertya berada dalam satu halaman dengan museum Buleleng. Keduanya merupakan bangunan lama yang sederhana namun di dalamnya tersimpan sejarah dan seni yang bernilai tinggi.

  • Gedung ini tempat penyimpanan benda-benda yang sangat penting dari Budaya Buleleng terutama Sastra Tradisional Bali
