Baby Statue at Batuan

Baby Statue at BatuanIf you happen to travel to Ubud village through Batuan village, you will surely pass the intersection of Belah Tanah hamlet, Batuan Kaler village, Sukawati subdistrict, Gianyar. Right in the midst of the intersection is established a statue of a giant baby. At the edges grows a large blackboard tree considered a sacred tree and commonly used to make sanctified barong mask.  According to Hindu community in Bali, the intersection is made sacred so that it is bordered with a fence. When people pass through the area, they will certainly pause to deliver an offering. Aside from being done by local community, such a practice is also carried out by other people wishing to travel to Gianyar, Bangli and Ubud.
Standing at this intersection will make you perceive different vibration. Its magical aura is strong. Based on stories of local people, bizarre incidents frequently happened at the location. Residents living around the baby statue believe that it will cry at mid-night on full moon. A crying baby is often heard by non-native residents.

In addition, saying rude and behaving arrogant are not allowed at the location. Otherwise, undesired incident will occur to the violator.  In the past, someone from Klungkung took his son to pass through the intersection leading to Denpasar. When arriving at the site, the old man said if his son was the same as the statue. As an impact, his son kept crying until he arrived home. Ultimately, the man then apologized to the statue by delivering an oblation.  According to local people, before the statue establishment, several accidents occurred around the intersection. However, after establishing and consecrating the statue, the accident diminished.

According to a medium, the highway was formerly traversed by holy men, so that it was prone to be passed through specifically by people having bad intention. Meanwhile, some people said if the baby statue had something to do with the Hayang Tibha Temple located in the west of the statue.
Divine ray of Lord Hayang Tibha lay in the statue. It was confirmed by the testimony of local temple priest that always paid devotional works at the statue area. “Having established and made regular ritual, the hazards of accident can be avoided. Right in the Padmasana shrine has been established the baby statue Brahma Lelare symbolizing that everything should be started with a small part,” said hamlet chief of Belah Tanah. (BTN/015)
