Measure the Strength of Bali in Pengukurukuran Temple

Measure the Strength of Bali in Pengukurukuran TempleAura of this temple is very intense. It does not only retain shrines in Balinese architecture, but also features a temple of old Javanese style. This sacred ancient relic remains to survive up to these days. For a venue of meditation, it must be solemn. Moreover, if it is carried out in Garba Cave located in the east of the temple exactly at the Pakerisan riverside, the ambience will surely be more stable. Foreign tourists are very eager to visit the sanctuary.

It’s the Pengukurukuran Temple. It is believed to be the first to measure the strength of Bali in the past time. Here, the strength of Kebo Iwa was measured before becoming a chief minister in ancient Balinese kingdom. The location on the edge of Pakerisan River was used as a school for the kings of Bali. Its location is at the Sawagunung customary village, Pejeng, Tampaksiring subdistrict, Gianyar County.

Chief of local temple priests, Jero Mangku Dewa Gede Rauh, revealed the temple had some shrines along with the sites originating from ancient times. The temple spreading across 2 hectares of land was said to be the venue where the kings of ancient Bali measured the land, including finding a suitable place to build the center of a temple. The values of prehistoric and historic remains in the form of Great Temple were stored in the shrine of Ratu Bujangga. Meanwhile, in the east of the temple, exactly on the edge of Pakerisan Temple, lay a relic named Garba Cave believed to guard the temple. It was said the cave was once taken advantage by Chief Minister Kebo Iwa from Bedahulu kingdom.

In the south of the temple occurred a stone path and rock stone gates. The road was heading for the Garba Cave. There was a stone containing a trace of footprint whose size exceeded the size of a human foot soles and believed if it belonged to Kebo Iwa. At the making of a ladder, the stones were said to walk by itself pursuant to the will of Kebo Iwa. Uniquely, every time stepping down the stairs, the amount was always different.

According to story developing in the area, before Kebo Iwa became a Chief Minister of Bedahulu his competency was tested by the royal officials, including by Ki Pasung Grigis, known to have a supernatural power. The place where to measure the supernatural strength was known as Dharmma Hanyar. Since Kebo Iwa was unbeaten he was finally accepted to fill in the position as Chief Minister of Bedahulu. On that account, the capability of Kebo Iwa was measured in the Dharmma Hanyar, where the place was then called Pengukurukuran. (BTN/015)
