Abstract: One of the performing arts favored by Balinese People is Arja. This article aims to discuss the cultural values behind the role of Mantri Manis in Arja Performing Arts. As a result of qualitative research, data collection was carried out by observing Arja's performances in Tabanan and Denpasar. Research data were also obtained through document studies and in-depth interviews with artists and art observers in Banjar Kelakahan Kaja, Buwit Village and Banjar Bathan Buah, Kesiman, Denpasar, Bali. The results showed that the Mantri Manis character was reflected in the fashion, dance movements and tembang rhetoric that accompanied his performance. In general, the character of the Mantri Manis role is as a figure who is refined, authoritative, integrity, sympathetic and always sided with the truth based on dharma in religious teachings (dharma). The role of Mantri Manis expresses aesthetic values, religious values and educational values that are culturally needed in building social stability. Keywords: cultural values, Mantri Manis, Arja.
