Barong and Keris Dance Performance (Trance Dance)

Barong is a character in the mythology of Bali. He is the king of the spirits, leader of the hosts of good, and enemy of Rangda in the mythological traditions of Bali. Banas Pati Rajah is the fourth "brother" or spirit child that accompanies a child throughout life. Banas Pati Rajah is the spirit which animates Barong. A protector spirit, he is often represented by a lion, and traditional performances of his struggles against Rangda are popular parts of Balinese culture. The Barong Dance is often portraited with two monkeys

 

The Barong is the magical protector of Balinese villages. As & lord of the forest with fantastic fanged mask and long mane, he is the opponent of Rangda the witch, who rules over the spirits of darkness, in the never ending fight between good and evil. During the Galungan Kuningan festivals, the Barong (there are many types, including barong ket, barong macan, and barong bangkal) wanders from door to door (nglawang) cleansing the territory of evil influences.

 

Barong and Kris dance like the kecak dance the Barong and Kris dance is a battle between good and evil spirit. Barong can take various forms but in this dance he takes the form of the dance Barong Keket, the most holy of the Barongs. The Barong Keket is a strange creature, half shaggy dog, half lion and is played by two men in much the same way as a circus clown-horse. His opponent is the witch Rangda.

Barong is probably the most well known dance. It is also another story telling dance, narrating the fight between good and evil. This dance is the classic example of Balinese way of acting out mythology, resulting in myth and history being blended into one reality.

Balinese traditional painting : was restricted to ceremony aspect such as religious part, calendar and leather puppet (balinese: wayang). This periode was before 1920 and called as Kamasan orWayang Style. Wayang itself is two dimentional drawing that characterized an hindu-buddhism epic such as Mahabarata and Ramayana. The paintings were used on temple or palace as ornament. They ilustrated many stories about religion and bali life. Ussually it is a pieces of paintings that tell a stories. The name of kamasan style itself was take from the village name where it originated. The material used in kamasan style is also traditional material from mineral and vegetables or plant resources.

More artists come to bali has influence traditional style that was restricted to ceremony aspect.

 

Batuan village wasn't influenced by the western as they were in Ubud. The Batuan paintings were often dark, crowded representations of either legendary scenes or themes from daily life, freakish animal monsters, and witches accosted people. The Batuan Village paintings were gradations of black to white ink washes laid over most of the surface, so as to create an atmosphere of darkness and gloom. In the later years, the designs covered the entire space, which often contributed to the crowded nature of these Balinese paintings.

Story Of Batuan Village Painting Art

 

For over a thousand years Batuan has been a village of Balinese Artwork and Bali handicrafts. Batuan village has a thousand year old history in accordance with the recorded history - begins in A.D. 1022, with an inscription that is housed in the main village temple, Pura Desa Batuan/Batuan Village Temple. In the Age of Warmadewa Dynasty in Bali, Desa Batuan / Batuan Village had to be there. Batuan village eventually came to be called Batuan, from the word of Batu / Rock, because - in that time - in this region is a rocky area (the famous Balinese sand stones are still produced here in northern of Batuan), then because of daily changes in the pronunciation then more popularly known as Batuan Village.

 

Batuan Temple

Batuan Temple is a local Balinese Hindu temple looked after by the local resident of Batuan countryside. We will visit this temple before next stop at Kintamani Tour. The temple is designed very beautiful with full of Balinese ornaments and the roof temple building is made from the fiber of chromatic black palm tree. Batuan has been a village of artists and craftsmen, old legends and mysterious tales. The name Batuan or Baturan mentioned here prompts villagers to joke about being tough as stone or eating rocks as batu means stone in Balinese. But it likely refers to an ancient megalithic tradition in which standing stones served as meeting places and ceremonial sites for the worship of ancestral spirits.

Bali Coffee Plantation

Bali Coffee Plantation is place where you can witness the various of plantation such as coffee arabica, coffee robusta, pineapple, balinesse snake fruit, and etc. experience to see how to make Balinesse coffee, try the best of balinesse coffee or ginger tea with green view river valley. They sell variety of theirs original Balinese coffee products, herb oil and etc and see the civet cat the most expensive coffee maker, wellknown as Luwak, its produce "Coffee Luwak" and the process of the bean passing through the digestive tract of the civet chemically alters the proteins in the Luwak coffee bean to yield more complex and smooth flavors, not found in conventional coffees.

History of Coffee Luwak

Coffee Luwak has a unique history behind the legend. In the early 18th century the Dutch established coffee plantations on the volcanic islands of the Dutch East Indies. This Coffee Luwak Arabica coffee hails from the mystical island of Bali.

 

During the early years Dutch Coffe Plantation owners forbade the local natives from harvesting and brewing the coffee beans for their own consumption. The indigenous people, being resourceful, soon discovered that the asian palm civet, favored eating coffee beans. These Luwak beans were collected, washed, sun dried and then roasted to produce a coffee with a deep richness, minus the acidity. The process of the bean passing through the digestive tract of the civet chemically alters the proteins in the Kopi Luwak coffee bean to yield more complex and smooth flavors, not found in conventional coffees.

 

The resulting coffee is said to be like no other in the world (literally). It has a rich, heavy flavor with hints of caramel and/or chocolate. Other terms used to describe it are earthy, musty and exotic. The body can be syrupy and it's the smoothest coffee you will ever have.

 

One must wonder how this coffee came to be. How was it discovered ? 

Who thought of drinking coffee in which an animal would eat and then expel ? 

There are many theories out there but personally this one is my favorite. It is theorized that local low income families and natives could not afford to purchase coffee since they barely had enough to survive. Therefore they picked up the Luwak's dropping and prepared them for roasting. Of course they were all well cleaned and proper steps were taken to make sure it was consumable

 

Goa Gajah Temple (Elephant Cave Temple)

Goa Gajah Temple also known as Elephant Cave Temple is an ancient omission in the form of a cave with the high value of art and history. The last stop on Kintamani Tour itinerary is visit goa gajah temple. Goa Gajah is one of tourist destinations in Bali that is visited by a lot of tourists every day. In this place, we will find other ancient omissions like ancient stone idol, douche, temple and others. It owns beautiful relief with a form of face turning around to the left side. The word of Goa Gajah is anticipated coming from the word of Lwa Gajah, the name of Buddhist Temple or hermitage for Buddhist monk. Goa Gajah was rediscovered in 1923 and in 1954 was rediscovered the bathing pond in front of the cave followed by the restoration.

Goa Gajah Temple Geographically

In the northern part of the temple, lies a carved Cave of Nature in the shape of  the letter ”T”. Inside this cave there is a Ganesha statue considered as the god of sciences. Additionally, at the location can also be encountered some fragments of statues and a Trilangga surrounded by eight small phallus.

 

In the cave wall, there are niches of the hermitage and the face of Cave is decorated with carvings depicting a jungle with its contents. Similarly, there is a short inscription which reads ”Kumon” and ”Sahywangsa”, which according to the type of letters it is alleged to originate in the eleventh  century AD .

Meanwhile in the west of the cave, there is a building retaining a squating statue inside, and the Ganesha as well as Men Brayut statue. The latter in Buddhist mythology is known as Hariti, the savior of children. Goa Gajah Temple occur two Buddha statues, one of them is without head while another is still good enough with the style of Central Java. The north side of this statue seemingly stay to stick on the cliffs, where the foot of the cliff temple has long fallen into the creek. On the side of this small can be found three-pronged relief of stupa and the ruins of the cliff temple having beautiful carvings.

 

Based on archeological findings as mentioned above, it can be known the Goa Gajah Temple is derived from the ninth to eleventh centuries AD. In the past, it served as a monastery of Buddhist monk and Shivite priest. This conservatism also shows the unification of Buddhism and Shiva went well. For tourists who would like to visit to Goa Gajah Temple are required to wear a scarf  or sarong because other than functioning as archaeological attractions, this temple also poses a sacred place or sanctum.

Tirta Empul Temple (Holy Spring Temple at Tampak Siring)


Tirta Empul Temple is built around the sacred spring at Tampak Siring. Perpect stop to visit this temple after visit volcano at Kintamani Village. For more than a thousand years, Balinese worshipers have been drawn to Tirta Empul Temple whose sacred spring is said to have been created by Indra and to have curative properties. The tradition continues almost unchanged at the temple today. Over 1000 years old, the temple and its two bathing places have been used by the people for good health and prosperity because of the spring water's curative powers. But the main attraction at Tirta Empul Temple is a long rectangular pool carved of stone, filled with koi and fed by the sacred spring via 12 fountains.

History Of Tirta Empul Temple : Tirta Empul Temple It is a myth described on a manuscript called Usana Bali says that a Balinese arrogant king named Maya Denawa did not believe in god, and objected the people to worship god. Later the punishment for the king came. The warior of Bhatara Indra arrived to attack Maya Denawa and put him away from the throne. But Maya Denawa used chemical weapons causing all the warriors of Bhatara Indra were poisoned to dead. Seeing this Bhatara Indra than planted his pole to the earth, and sprang water. This water was used to spray the dead warriors, and they alive back. So this water source until now is believed to be the source of life and prosperity. It is especially correct if we associate this water spring with the irrigation system around the area, as it gives hundreds of hectares of rice field from Tampaksiring until Pejeng areas.

 

The inscription mentions the construction of Tirta Empul Temple in 960 AD, when the king Chandrabhaya Singha Warmadewa ordered this which is already 1042 years ago. It seems that this place was not interesting for ancient king but on 1954 the first Indonesian president Soekarno had built his presidential villas just at the west side of the temple. Originally a residence for Dutch officials, it was later used by former President Soekarno during his frequent trips to Bali. This villa has brought also the name of Tampaksiring become known world widely.

 

The present temple as a common temple of Bali, the layout is divided into 3 courtyards. At the middle courtyard is constructed and first courtyards were constructed:

 

Pool with 13 fountains, used as holy water for cremation or dead ceremony,

 

Pool with 8 fountains, used as water for symbolic cleaning ( spiritual purification ), when a person is sick it is believed he is infected by immaterial dirt.

 

Pool with 5 fountains for holy water used people from outside come to pray.

 

Tirta Empul Temple is located in the village of Tampak Siring, accessible by public transportation from Ubud. The souvenir stands outside the temple specialize in the local craft, carved bone jewelry.

 

Gunung Kawi Temple (Bali Ancient Royal Tombs)

Gunung Kawi Temple located in Tampaksiring village. After visit Kintamani Volcano View we will visit gunung kawi temple with beautiful collection of candi and situated in a river valley surrounded by rice fields and jungle. This has been one of our favorite day trips for years. Gunung Kawi Temple is a ancient Bali Royal Tombs, created to evoke the appearance of temple fronts and designed to provide residence for the souls of ancient kings. The Gunung Kawi does have an interesting history. Inscriptions over each Candi approximate the date of   construction to be in the 11th C. It is believed that each temple served as a memorial to a deified royalty principally because they are shaped like the burial towers.

Inscriptions

 

In the inscription of Tengkulak A year 945 Saka had been issued by Marakata King that the ancient heritage complex located at Pakerisan River was named Katyagan Amarawati. Pakerisan River is also called by Jalu based on the inscription carved on the greatest temple door saying Haji Lumahing Jalu. Later on the name of Gunung Kawi is given by indicating that these ancient relics are the temple complex because temple is symbolizing the mount.

 

It should be aware that there are at least 3 temples with the same name of Gunung Kawi existed in Bali Island those are Gunung Kawi at Sebatu Village, Gunung Kawi at Keliki Village and Gunung Kawi at Babitra Village.

 

The Existence of Temple Complex. The relic ancient complex of Gunung Kawi began to be established in the 10th century AD. The establishment began in the era of Udayana around 989 AD. In the reign of Marakata around 1023 AD, this achient relics called Katyagan Amarawati and then the process of development is continued in the reign of Anak Wungsu allegedly reigned between 1049 – 1077 AD. Gunung Kawi is an ancient relic complex consisted of 2 parts:

Vihara Complex (Vihara = Buddhist Temple)

 

Vihara Complex is used for a residence and a place for meditation. It is consisted of several niches, centrally located in east of Pakerisan River precisely in south part of temple complex. The other niches are dispersed and located close to temple complex. One of the niches is a cave located in the northern corner separately with other niches complex, it seems that serve a special niche. In the cave where in the middle of the floor, there is a hole. May be the hole had been used as a place to put the ceremony material in form of Api Homa.

 

Based on those reasons, the function of cave is predicted as a meditation place. In front of cave, there are several pieces of Pripih, a square stone with 9 holes that formerly placed in the temple. The existence of 9 holes on Pripih is used as a premise that the Pripih is a cosmos symbol that usually associated with Dewata Nawa Sanga (nine gods).
