Legend tells that it was once settled by people from the mountains who were escaping an invasion of ants. Several clans then moved from Klungkung, a regency in the south eastern Bali, to resettle in Munduk Village 200 to 300 years ago. This was the gateway through which the prime minister of the Majapahit Kingdom in East Java penetrated to South Bali. History repeated itself when the Dutch expanded their colony lands from Java to Bali.
