The name Denpasar comes from the words "dén" and "pasar", two Old Javanese words meaning 'market' and 'center', respectively. The city was actually called by different names in the past, with its old name being Kota Gede (Jawi: كوت ڬدي), which is now used for a district in Denpasar. In 1833, a local village leader named Mpu Sindok moved to Kayu Jati (a small village near Ubud) after being persuaded by the royal family of Buleleng to settle there. He established his own palace surrounded by villages that were ruled under traditional systems led by their own chiefs ("bupati"). Some of these villages still exist today like Kelebek Village, Selagalasan Village, Semara Village etc., while others have since become part of modern-day Kuta such as Petulu Village or Ujung Genting Kelod ().
