ulun bratan

According to the concept Balinese Rwa Bhineda (The Balance of two opposites), Pura Ulun Danu Batur is regarded as Pradana (feminine) while Pura Besakih is purusha (masculine), thus the two temples complete the universal Balance. Whereas at Pura Besakih, God is worshipped to strengthen the soul of the people to achieve spiritual happiness, at Pura Batur, prayers are conducted to strengthen economic prosperity.

Lying at an altitude of 900 m above sea level, the temple is located at Kalanganyar Village, Kintamani sub district, Bangli regency, in the heart of Central Bali. Rebuilt in 1926, the temple is dedicated to Dewi Batari Ulun Danu, the goddess of lakes and rivers. “Ulun Danu” itself literally translates as “head of the lake”. Until 1917, the Ulun Danu Batur Temple was nestled in the northwestern slope of Mount Batur. The large eruption of Mount Batur in 1917, which swallowed thousands of lives and ruined the entire area, equally sorely damaged the temple. The head of the village and the residents then decided to bring the surviving shrines with them and rebuilt the temple at higher ground in Kalanganyar. In the following 1926 eruption, the entire the Batur village, including the temple, was once again buried by lava. But the 11-tiered meru shrine of Dewi Danu located in the temple compound survived. After the catastrophe not only was the temple rebuilt on higher ground, but the village was also shifted higher.

This temple is the core of all water temples in Central Bali. It is paramount among all water temple systems which has great authority over all irrigation systems that draw water from Lake Batur in Bali’s famed Subak landscape. This unique system, which is a recognized UNESCO World Cultural Heritage, comprises not only the technical aspects of rice cultivation and irrigation but is moreover part and parcel of the social and religious unity on Bali.

Pura Batur comprises nine different temples, containing in total 285 shrines and pavilions dedicated to the gods and goddesses of water, agriculture, holy springs, art, crafts, and more. Pura Penataran Agung Batur, the principal temple, has five main courtyards. Its most dominant shrines are the 11-tiered meru situated in the inner and most sacred courtyard, three 9-tiered merus dedicated to Mount Batur, Mount Abang, and Ida Batara Dalem Waturenggong, the deified king of the Gelgel dynasty who ruled from 1460 to 1550. The eight other temples are Penataran Pura Jati, Pura Tirta Bungkah, Pura Taman Sari, Pura Tirta Mas Mampeh, Pura Sampian Wangi, Pura Gunarali, Pura Padang Sila, and Pura Tuluk Biyu.

tanah lot

To many people, Tanah Lot epitomizes the romantic island of Bali. This is the image of Balinese temples on the rock facing the wide open ocean, perched high above the crashing waves below, with as background the colorful sky at dusk, lit by the slowly disappearing setting sun.

Located in the sea some 300 meters from shore, the huge rock of Tanah Lot is reachable overland at low tide. On its northern side stand two Balinese temples built on an overhanging cliff which connects the islet to the shore. Underneath the rock are caves that are inhabited by sea snakes, believed to be the guardians of the temples.

The Tanah Lot temples form an inseparable part of the Dang Kahyangan temples, the six most holy temples on Bali, but here believers pray to the god of the sea.
On the west side of the rock is a spring which the Hindus believe to be holy water and the reason why the temples were built on this rock.

Tanah Lot is derived from the words “Tanah” meaning a rock or land, while “Lot” or “Lod” means south or the sea. Therefore Tanah Lot means the Rock by the Sea. The temples of Tanah Lot were said to have been built in the 16th century by the Hindu priest Bawu Rawuh, better known as Danghyang Nirartha, who came from the kingdom of Majapahit in East Java, and travelled to Bali to spread the Hindu religion. Arriving at this spot he was inspired by the sacredness of the place and advised his followers to build the temples at this location.

According to legend it was Danghyang Nirartha who successfully strengthened the belief of the local population in the Hindu religion. However, in the process, another local religious leader named Bendesa Beraban, felt competed since many of his followers turned to Danghyang Nirarta. Seeing this, Bendesa ordered Danghyang Nirartha to leave the area of Tanah Lot.

Nirartha agreed but before leaving, he gathered all his powers, lifted the rock, and moved this further out to sea, building temples on this rock. He then transformed his shawl into snakes to guard the temples. Upon seeing this, Bendesa Beraban was awed and became a follower of Danghyang Nirartha.

Until today the sea snakes still make the caves their habitat. They have a flat tail like a fish and are black in color with yellow stripes. On certain days when the sun sets towards the north one can see the rays shining right onto the caves.

A trip to the enchanting island of Bali will not be complete without taking home some of the fine pieces of its illustrious artworks and handicrafts; and there is no better way to obtain these than through the art of bargaining with local sellers at an authentic Balinese folks market.

The best place to shop among the entire gamut of Balinese authentic artworks and handicrafts is the Sukawati Art Market, located on the Sukawati main road in the Gianyar Regency, some 20km northeast from the capital city of Denpasar.

Open daily from 08.00 to 19.00 hrs.Central Indonesia Time, Sukawati Art Market is Bali’s largest, most distinguished and long-standing art market. Sukawati has a long reputation as the center for shopping for the wide variety of Balinese artworks and handicrafts dating to the 1980’s. The two-storey market building is usually packed with shopping holidaymakers and locals sourcing for household and daily necessities. It is an alternative, inexpensive and complete shopping destination conveniently situated on most tour itineraries to the central and northern regions of the island.

A wide range of Balinese distinct souvenirs can be found here from framed paintings, carvings, traditional woven textiles, traditional kites, handmade bags, women’s accessories, shirts, sarongs, to Balinese ceremonial items and daily local household items, and more – all at reasonable ‘bargain prices. This is the best place to hunt for that iconic Balinese “Barong” T-shirts as well as other mementos and keepsakes of your memorable Bali holiday.

Most of the fine paintings on sale here are generally replicas of the signature paintings of maestros, such as Blanco, Arie Smit, Bonet and Han Snel who have all lived in Bali. However, there are also some Bali’s original ‘Kamasan-style’ paintings. Clothes, sarongs and other fabrics of different sizes, colors and patterns as well as bedcovers of varying colors and designs can be seen hanging from the ceilings or stacked neatly in piles at the many shops on the ground level. Balinese traditional masks, wayang kulit (leather puppets), sculptures in myriad shapes and sizes, wooden frames with distinct Balinese carvings, and other decorative items can also be found in many shops on the back area of the market.

With the latest development of a number of modern art shops and souvenirs centers in Bali, which normally accept credit card payments while some of them even open 24 hours, the existence of this traditional art market certainly offers its own unique sensation. The experience of dealing with local people, browsing through the shops along small market alleys, choosing what to buy from a pile of goods, and bargain for a good price will surely be an unforgettable experience.
