Ganesha Bookshop was established in 1986 as a small family business by Ketut Yuliarsa and his wife Anita Scheeres. Ketut Yuliarsa is a well known writer and actor/musician in Bali and together with Anita had the desire to see a bookshop in Bali that would cater to the needs of all the avid readers, collectors and researchers who passed through Ubud, Bali. They began the bookshop with their own precious collection of books and traded as a second hand outlet. Over the years the shop grew extensively and now houses a vast second hand books section which includes antiquarian books on Bali and Indonesia. As the shop grew they added lots of new books on Indonesia in the areas of language, literature, cooking, arts and culture. We are conveniently located near the Ubud Post Office. We suggest you print out a copy of the map below and bring it with you on your trip to Bali.
In March 2012 Ganesha Bookshop opened in the seaside area of Sanur. Here we are situated on the main street at No 42, Jalan Danau Tamblingan, Sanur. We are delighted that in this store we have a special Children’s Corner with lots of cushions for children to drop in and read the special selection of books in both Indonesian and in English. This store also has a wide selection of secondhand books for sale – great for those lazy days on Sanur Beach! Also a range of new books on Indonesian language, art, craft, religion, music, culture and cooking. There is a small cabinet of antiquarian books on Bali and Indonesia, and a range of exotic gifts and cards.
