TAMAN AYUN ROYAL FAMILY TEMPLE:
Taman Ayun was a major temple at 17 kilometers northwest of Denpasar in the village of Mengwi. The temple complex is famous because of its magnificent traditional architectural characteristics spread across its courtyards and enclosures. The temple also has extensive gardens with lots of lots of beautiful fish ponds.
The name Taman Ayun is’ lovely garden.’ This palace complex is a excellent place not only to marvel at early Balinese architecture but also to imagine how royal balinese people lived behind palace walls in the day. For example, there are vast pools where palace servants are sailing around in tiny canoes.
Although the royal pools are far from what could be imagined during their glorious days, moussed walls and jade-laden water add to the rustic beauty of the entire landscape of this centuries-old temple site.
The temple was constructed in 1634 by Tjokerda Sakti Blambangan, then ruler of the Mengwi Kingdom. It was constructed with the inspiration of Chinese architecture and in 1937 underwent a major renovation project. Towering lanes from temple shrines are mostly Taman Ayun’s profile and a gesture of the Mengwi people’s reverence for their deified rulers. The temple is regarded Mengwi’s’ mother temple.’
Taman Ayun Temple was to be the primary veneration for the individuals of Mengwi who need not travel too far to the great shrines, such as Besakih in the East of Bali, Batukaru in Tabanan or Batur in Kintamani. It was also a sign of unification between the Mengwi kingdom and individuals.
The Taman Ayun Temple complex consists of 4 distinct branches, one above the other. The 1st is called’ Jaba’ or external division, which can be accessed only via a single door and path over the lakes. There is a tiny guardian sanctuary indoors and a big wantilan hall to the right where there are common meetings. There is a big fountain here with flowers in the cardinal directions.
The next courtyard is made up of a tiny temple called Pura Luhuring Purnama. The second and third terraces are somewhat greater than the first one. To enter, you have to enter through a second door, where you will be welcomed by a shelter called Bale Pengubengan, with the ornament of Dewata Nawa Sanga or nine Hindu gods who guide compass points.
East of this courtyard is an eighth meter high Wooden Bell tower called the Bale Kulkul, which is a tiny temple called Pura Dalem Bekak, while the Bale Kulk. Two rectangular hanging wooden clocks and a elevated and spectacular view of the complete complex will show the ascent.
The 4th and last court is regarded the most sacred, known as the Utama Mandal. The complexly adorned main door is only open during ceremonies as the entry point for consecrated heirlooms and other ceremonies. Every day there is another door in the south. Various levels with various contours and dimensions form the skyline of the temple.
Welcome to the Temple of Taman Ayun
Taman Ayun Temple is sharing with the cliffs of Uluwatu on the southern peninsula of the island on the same anniversary day. Each Tuesday, when devotees come to pray day and day and night, this is celebrated on a 210-day calendar in the Balinese Pavukon.
A journey to the complex of Taman Ayun Temple is generally a route to central or northern Bali, which is included. It’s also a good stop when you go from South Bali to Bedugul. Alas kedaton and Tanah Lot Sea Temple will be combined for half a day trip.
A pavilion named Bale Loji is north of the bell tower. In ancient times, it was there that priests and officials prepared or stopped. You can now generally see artists working here to create their recent artworks which can be purchased for the most part.
Manusa Yadnya Museum is just across the temple’s street. The museum is an excellent venue for learning Balinese rituals and transit rites. This also represents another optional tourist attraction when you come to the Temple of Taman Ayun.
Our Bali Nature tour trip will continue by driving uphill pass the village and vegetable plantations and stop on our next visit at ULUN DHANU LAKE BRATAN TEMPLE.
Situated on top of the plateau of Lake Beratan, the magnificent Ulun Danu Temple stands in the hilly Bedugul Tabanan Regency of Bali. The air is crisp and cool in the moderate, mountain climate at around 1.500 meters above sea level.
The lake is amazingly clear and almost totally silent, except for the gentle wind which sometimes sweeps around and creates small on the surface waves. A thin brume rises out of the lake and hangs around the temple in the air to make it look a bit surreal.
In worshiping the deity of Danu, Pura Ulun Danu has been built. Danu implies lake in Balinese tongue, whereas goddess Danu means water queen, lakes and rivers. Danu implies lake. Four sacred buildings are located in the temple complex.
Linga Pura is a place of worship to Shiva the god. It stands three levels elevated. The Mangu devotion to the god Vishnu was constructed and stands at 11 levels.
The primary temple is Pura Theratai Bang and Sang Hyang Widhi is worshiped by Pura Dalem Purwa. This latter temple is also a place to pray for fertility, wealth and prosperity.
The construction style is in keeping with Trimurti faith. The three gods Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu depict the three holy colours. To Lord Brahma, Creator, the first color is red. It’s black second. Lord Vishnu’s symbol is the universe balancing and preserving. Finally, white for god Shiva, The destructor.
From the megalithic era, the region around the temple is said to be a place of adoration and center for religious rituals. A sarcophagus and a piedmont which date back to approximately 500 BC are on the left of the temple.
It was reported in 1556 that the temple itself existed. In 1633 it was reconstructed with a blend of Hindu and Buddhist architectural styles by King of Mengwi, I Gusti Agung Putu.
The temple stays clean and well maintained by the local community, although it is old and in good condition. The Temple of Ulun Danu is one of Bali’s icons and is shown on the bill for 50,000 rupiahs.
The second biggest lake in Bali is Lake Beratan and is the irrigating source of rice fields and plantations throughout the village of Bedugul. The mountain on which it sits is often called “the holy mountain” because of the cool climate and the wealthy, fertile earth.
In the early days, Beratan Lake was Bali’s biggest lake, and the lake remained divided into three parts: Bradan, Buyan and Tamblingan, until a devastating earthquake. The name Beratan is derived from Brata, meaning to lead oneself to satisfy the 9 main requirements. The word is used to meditate on the word “Tapa Brata” and to be united to nature.
Next stop is visiting JATILUWIH.
“For those who spend more time living in a glamorous city, it is somehow a blessing to reach the place with purest natural views. You can enjoy the most without knowing the crowd or the fuck of the vehicle. Your eyes only look at the green terrace, and the Jatiluwih rice terrace offers views and peace. Jatiluwih has beautiful natural views among local and international tourists. The rice terrace here is the one you normally see other than rice fields. There appear to be levels of rice or rice stairs.
When the rice starts to turn yellow and dry, you won’t see anything gorgeous. But you will enjoy the magnificent view once it begins greenish. Experience the beautiful moment from the hills. You can also take photos of these fields from another place. The rice terrace of Jatiluwih not only brings greenery to your eyes, but also very good atmosphere and ambiance because of its position. The rice terrace is situated close Mountain Batukaru and 700 meters above the ocean surface, making the climate cool.
Although the Jatiluwih rice field trip looks empty, it still lends beauty at every step. There are very few individuals here; unlike you walk on the beach of Kuta or Sanur with loads of individuals doing their work. It is good to understand that the region is filled only by nature. It’s very rural and you’ll be happy to see the environment. The only two things you notice are agricultural communities and high-end mountain resorts.
Because there are no government buses on a periodic basis, you should rent a vehicle for a trip here. Our hire car business in Bali offers distinct kinds of vehicles for rent. Choose one with which you will be comfortable.
Tour will be ended at TANAT LOT FAMOUS SEA TEMPLE.
The Temple in Tanah Lot (Pura Tanah Lot), which lies along the coast of Beraban hills, Kediri subdistrict and Tabanan Regency is likely the most popular and photographed on the island.
Tanah Lot’s Temple is a land (Tanah) and sea (Lot) set on an impressive rock overlooking the ocean, quite suitable given its dramatic location.
It is one of the seven sea shrines on the Bali shore creating a kind of religious bulwark, which flies in the ocean currents in bad vibes.
Pura Tanah Lot is constructed on a rock with a 3-acre size, which is only 20 meters from its coastal lip and reachable on foot in a few minutes. The Temples of Tanah Lot are just one of Bali’s icons that can not be lost.
This cultural icon is one of seven maritime shrines on the shore of Bali which has been embodied for millennia in Balinese mythology.
Today the Temple of Tanah Lo remains powerful even though it is fairly old as the Temple began crumbling in the 1980’s and about one-third of the rocks at the temple base had to be substituted for artificial rocks.
It is a famous tourist destination and, particularly in the late afternoons, the whole region is often highly busy before sunset.
Tanah Lot comes from the term “Tanah,” which implies soil and the word “Lot / laut” implies sea, as it resembles a tiny island that floats on the ocean and is located on the rock, and is called Tana Lot by individuals.
Nowadays Tanah Lot was used as a place that was holy and demonstrated by the presence of menhir at a Megalithic era.
The structure of Tanah Lot Temple is thus constructed at the uneven reef plane in an angle consisting of only one simple court such as Jeroan in accordance with its environmental condition.
Tanah Lot Temple has similarities with other temples on the island of Bali and, as it is constructed on a coral plain that the uneven corners of the house are not a couple of pages.
There are tiered sanctuaries within the actual temple, which follow the fundamental elements of Balinese design, where the number of levels built are symbolic of the complexities of faith.
The site is not only very religiously important but has also archeological significance, there are also other formation in the region.
The heirloom pilgrimage is one of Bali’s worthy parades on the Holy day of Kuningan, five days before its anniversary.
Piodalan of Tanah Lot falls on the 210-day Pawukon agenda of Bali on every Wednesday following every Kuningan. All Hindus in Bali will come to worship peacefully and harmoniously at the moment.
And the Temple Tanah Lot is the Hindu shrine constructed as God of the ocean (God Baruna) to worship God as the God of the ocean and to invoke the richness of the earth.
History of Tanah Lot Temple
The myths and sagas in this sacred place are nearly as lovely as the temple itself. Tanah Lot Temple history After the night spent here by Holy Priest Danghyang Nirarta, Bali people decided to construct the Tanah Lot temple.
The tale goes that a bridge from the continent to the temple was built, but the strong ocean demolished it. Another interesting detail is that underneath Tanah Lot is a cave with a magic spring. The water is uncannily fresh in the spring, while salt water surrounds the temple.
Tanah Lot Temple’s history is strongly connected with a holy monk named Dang Hyang Nirartha, who spread Hindu doctrines, on his holy trip from Blambangan (Java Island), to Bali Island.
It’s called Dang Hyang Dwijendra, or Pedanda Sakti Wawu Rauh, too. Raja Dalem Waturenggong ruled the island of Bali around the 16th century.
At the Dwijendra Tattwa, Dang Hyang Nirartha returned to the temple of Rambut Siwi on the way to Çaka in 1411 and AD in 1489 when he came first on Çaka from Blambangan, Java Island, in Bali.
After a while at the temple in Rambut Siwi, he walked on the way to the east .DangHyang Niratha prayed with individuals there “Surya Cewana” before leaving.
He walked away from the temple east after sprinkling holy waters (tirtha) with the people involved in adoration. The tour traces the island’s south coast with some supporters.
Dang Hyang Nirartha really enjoyed the beauty of the southern coast of the Bali Island and was very impressed by the natural beauty.
He imagined the grandeur of Sanghyang Widhi Wasa, who created the world and all in it that could give life to humanity. It whispered in his core that each creature, particularly humans, has a obligation to give thanks to Allah for all that he is happy to produce.
The beach consists of rocks and there is also a spring that was called Gili Beo, “Gili” is the tiny island, “beo” is the bird, therefore Gili Beo implies a tiny island of rocks similar to a bird.
This is where Dang Hyang Nirartha stops and rest after a while of rest and then went the fisherman who wished to see him and offer him a number of different offerings. This is where he was led by Benesa Beraban Sakti, who is the leader in Beraban Village.
The fishermen then asked him for the night to spend at their house after the afternoon. He refused to accept all the request and preferred to spend the night in Gili Beo because he can enjoy the fresh air, the wonderful scenery and the view in every way.
In the afternoon before he left to rest, he taught the people who had come to him about religion, morale and other virtues. But Bendesa Beraban Sakti did not favor Dang Hyang Nirartha’s participation since her teachings are not in line with the teachings propagated by Dang Hyang Nirartha.
DangHyang Nirartha moved Gili Beo onto the ocean and made the snake of his cock to always maintain Gili Beo secure from maliciful assaults to defend himself from the aggression of Bendesa Beraban Sakti. And Gili Beo altered his name to Tanah Lot (country in the ocean), after this time.
After having witnessed Dang Hyang Nirartha’s miracle Bendesas Beraban Sakti succeeded him to teach the population Hinduism. Dang Hyang Nirartha, for his services, offered Kris to Bendesa Beraban Sakti before continuing his voyage (The Kris or Keris is a marked, asymmetric dagger from Indonesia.
In Puri Kediri Tabanan, up until now, the Keris Ki Baru Gajah still exists and is also saved, which has been sanctified, in Bendesa Beraban Sacthi, is called Jaramenara or Kris Ki Barus Gajah.
DangHyang Nirartha advised individuals to construct a Temple of Tanah Lot because according to his holy internal vibrations and supernatural advice, the place is a nice place to worship God, individuals can from this location love God’s greatness as the God of the ocean, to invoke the security and wellness of the globe.
