Last “Pelebon” Using 11 stories “bade”

After going through a long preparation “Pelebon” or cremation ceremony for the third wife of Klungkung’s King was carried out on Sunday, June 26. The ritual attracted thousands of people. It is not only because the ceremony quite rare but also it will be the last kind of ritual. The cremation of Ida I Dewa Agung Istri Putra wis the last ceremony which used 11 stories “bade”, the place to carry the corpse to the cemetery.  The “pelebon” was carried out in Klungkung cross road or called Catus Pata.
The elder in Puri Agung Klungkung explained the procession was started by circling the Catus Pata three times. Then, the body was placed in the “Bade” using “tagtag” stairs made from bamboos. After that, the elders of the puri came up the other ceremonies equipments made before such as Tjokorda Bagus Oka and Tjokorda Surya Putra went up to the bade while Tjokorda Alit Putra and Tjokorda Gede Putra rode the “Naga Banda”, the holy dragon, Tjokorda Gde Agung, Tjokorda Bobi Tanaya and Tjokorda Mayun Putra rode the “Lembu”, holy cow.

The carry the “Bade” to the cementery where the body will be cremated took approximately 6,500 people. They were divided into five groups and taking turns because the “Bade” is very heavy, it was weight in around 6 tons. In addition to the local, the members of Indonesian Army and the police also took part in the event.

The ceremony was led by Ida Pedanda Putra Tembau. Tjokorda Gde Agung said that the ceremony which is using 11 stories “Bade” will be the last one because it is only can be used by the wife of King which has the title Ida I Dewa Agung. “In our family, she was the one who has that title so there will be no more ceremony using 11 stories Bade,” he added.
Ida I Dewa Agung Istri Putra passed away on December 28, 2013 and before the ceremony, the body was placed Gedong Puri Agung Saraswati. It kaes a while for the ceremony because it needed the best day and the process of making the equipments was very difficult. The “Bade” itself need 50 experts to build.

The “Pelebon” is a rare ritual and according to the Puri, there were only 3 other ceremonies using 11 stories “Bade”. One of them was the “Pelebon” of Ida I Dewa Agung Oka Geg which was also known as Betara Mampeh. He was very famous because he had more than 40 wives and 37 children.  (BTN/kmb)
