A Beautiful Woman at Menyali Waterfall

A Beautiful Woman at Menyali WaterfallMenyali Waterfall or better known as Campurase is located at Menyali village, Sawan subdistrict, Buleleng County. This nature tourism is incredibly beautiful, unique and interesting place to visit. On holidays, this exotic tourist attraction is always crowded by local people, and often serves as a fun choice for foreign travelers to relax. Menyali Waterfalls is originated from the seven sacred springs. They are the Batu Belah, Gatep, Beji, Bulakan, Rambutan, Lawas and Sambuk spring. On that account, other than serving as a sacred place, local communities also believe if the waterfalls also have the efficacy to cure various diseases.

However, to make a visit or have treatment at the waterfall, visitors should be careful and follow the existing bans. Behind the beauty of the Menyali waterfall attraction, it is also known to be haunted. “Bizarre incidents often occur here such as the appearance of a beautiful woman, without being preceded with a sign,” said the Headman of Menyali, Made Sudana. According to Sudana, location of the Menyali Waterfall is indeed haunted because it is made up of three tiers, namely overflowing from the cliff and then falling into a basin resembling a large lake. Furthermore, it spills again in the second and third pool. “Well, the fall of water in each of these levels has a meaning and different function,” he explained.

At the first level, affirmed Sudana, the water was commonly used for deva yajña (sacrifice for gods); the second level for manusha yajña (human life cycle ritual) and third level pitri yajña (sacrifice for ancestor). “The Hindus at our village often utilize this water for diverse ritual needs,” he said. Sudana added at the location grew a tree where according to a medium it was inhabited by a very large black dog. “There is also a boulder in which according to the surrounding community it is called Batu Tumpeng or Conical Stone. It is called Tumpeng because no matter how large the water flow running to this waterfall, the stone is never submerged,” he said.

Other than Batu Tumpeng, there is a stone resembling a mask and stuck on the waterfall cliff. It is said the stone was the face of Mpu Awang. Sudana then recounted the origin of the waterfall. Mpu Awang who was a sailor had explored various oceans. Once upon a time, he smelt a fragrance. He then traced the source of the scent and eventually arrived at the Beji spring.

At the Beji spring, he saw a very beautiful girl who was in the shower. The girl was named Dewa Ayu Pradnya Dari. Seeing her beautiful face, Empu Awang then could not help teasing her. Seeing the unethical behavior of Mpu Awang, Mpu Manik Jamawan the father of Dewa Ayu Pradnya Dari got angry and emotional. He finally cursed Mpu Awang to be carried away by the floods. The curse ensued and Mpu Awang drifted off to Menyali Waterfall. His body was no longer intact. His head and body were separated and his face turned into stone resembling a mask. (BTN/martini)
