The concept of harmony with nature (ecology) can be seen in one of the public facilities of the traditional Hindu community in Bali, Setra. Form of Setra is an area of green open space with a certain width that has a characteristic that is the presence of large trees. The existence of Setra is expected to be able to survive with the development of cremation facilities.

Each village is divided into traditional villages and offices so that it has an influence on the existence of setra. In total there are 21 (twentyone) Setra in Kuta Utara District.
