Batuan, The Painters Village

Batuan village is famous as the centre of traditional paintings. Balinese traditional painting was restricted to ceremony aspect such as religious part, calendars and leather puppets, called as Kamasan style. The paintings were used on temple or palace as ornament. They illustrated many stories about religion and Bali life. By the coming of some European artist to Bali, changed a lot of the local style, they were inspired by the beauty of Ubud’s nature. Some of them stayed permanently in Ubud and build a place where modern art paintings are introduced to locals. At Batuan village we can find both style modern as well as tradtional paintings.

Kintamani Village and Batur Volcano

Kintamani is a mountain village, it is located about 1500 meters above sea level, makes the temperature fresh and cool during the day and cold during night time. Kintamani village are situated on the rim of an old caldera of mount Panulisan, an ancient mountain which had several explosive erruptions, leaving a huge caldera which the deepest part becomes Lake Batur. Since then the Panulisan mountain stay calm until the new volcano gradually arise in the middle of the old caldera known as Mt. Batur. The name Batur literally comes from the word ‘batu’ means stones and then became the name of the lake, as well. Mt. Batur becomes the most active volcano in Bali, its first erruption was in 1917 and followed by bigger erruption in 1926 which killed thousand of people who reside on slope of mountain. It errupted again in 1963 and keep active until the recent erruption was in the year of 2000 in a ‘peaceful’ action. Kintamani offers a magnificent view of Mt. Batur and Lake Batur, it is now becomes one of the most popular stopping point for the tourist to take picture as well as place to have lunch.

Tirta Empul, Holy Spring Water Temple

Tirta Empul Temple is located in Tampak Siring 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 Bhatara Indra and to have curative properties. The tradition continues almost unchanged at the temple today. Over 1000 years old, the temple with its two bathing places has been used by people for good health and purification. Tirta Empul Temple 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 warrior 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 Tampak Siring until Pejeng areas. The inscription mentions in 960 AD this place was a holy water garden by the king Chandrabhaya Singha Warmadewa, until it is become a Hindu Sivaistic temple during the golden age of Hinduism in about 11th century, this is evidence by the existence of the Lingga Yoni, the remnant of Sivaistic Hinduism.

Goa Gajah Temple

The word of Goa Gajah is anticipated coming from the word of Lwa Gajah, the name of Buddhist Temple or hermitage for Buddhist monk. The Goa Gajah's name is written on Negara Kertagama papyrus which is compiled by Mpu Prapanca on 1365 M. Lwa or Lwah/Loh mean the river and it reflect to the meaning that the hermitage is located at Gajah River or in Air Gajah. In the year inscription 944 Saka, it is mentioned with the name of ‘ser ring Air Gajah' that is meaning the Subak leader in Air Gajah. The word has mentioned that the hermitage of Lwa Gajah is located in Subak Air Gajah. Among the local residents, the Goa Gajah Temple is better known as Cave Temple, located in the west of Bedahulu village, Blahbatuh subdistrict, Gianyar regency. It is about 27 km east of Denpasar. A visit to this temple can be done easily because it is only a few feet below the highway toward the village of Tampak Siring. Indeed this temple was built at the Valley of Petanu River having beautiful natural panorama. 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 science. Additionally, at the location can also be encountered some fragments of statues and a Tri Lingga 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. In front of the cave, except for the guard statues, there are also fragments of building whose origin was unknown such as the building fragments that now being gathered in the temple’s courtyard located in the west of bathing pond. Fountain statues that have worked again in the holy bathing pond are divided into three parts and in terms of its style, they are probably derived from the eleventh century AD. Unfortunately, the statue fountain located in the middle of the pond, has not been found until now. Goa Gajah Temple have 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 that Goa Gajah Temple is derived from the ninth to eleventh centuries AD. In the past, it served as a monastery for Buddhist monk and Shivite priest. This conservatism also shows the unification of Buddhism and Shiva went well. For tourists who would like to visit 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. Sarongs and scarves are available at the location.
