Caution! Do Not Pee in the Area of Jero Agung Temple

Caution Do Not Pee in the Area of Jero Agung TempleJero Agung Temple located at Batulumbang hamlet, Bedulu village, Blahbatuh subdistrict, Gianyar is an ancient temple. As the heritage of Bedahulu kingdom originating in the eighth century until the fourteenth century, it leaves many archaeological relics. The Jero Agung Temple is also a tourist attraction as other temples, like the Samuan Tiga, Goa Gajah, and the Gunung Sinunggal Temple.
Form and the sanctity of the temple are almost the same. However, the Jero Agung Temple has a unique mystery. The temple area and outside the temple area are classified into sacred zone. People do not dare to talk nonsense or behave impolite. Indiscriminate urinating will definitely get proper penalties.

Although it is done in the bush or on the road away from the temple area it still considered to violate.
Local villagers do not dare to break them. Therefore, people who intentionally or unintentionally violate will definitely get punishment. It can be categorized into unique punishment such as walking around the temple without knowing direction. “People do not find the way out or the way home because they just walk around the temple area,” said one of the local residents.

The man said there had been a truck driver who was carrying sand to one of the local residents. The driver did not ask for permission where people could pee. The truck driver then carelessly peed. After that, the driver did not know the way toward his truck. He walked back and forth repeatedly. One of the local residents then told him, so that the driver was realizing his condition. Some days later, he came again to put offerings for apologies.

Another strange incident was experienced by a satay trader. At that time, residents organized a cockfight in the temple area so that a lot of people came to join or see the event. A satay trader disposed his used skewers haphazardly at the location. Resident who saw it had told him. However, the trader replied rudely as if he did not want to pay attention to the caution. Before completing his talks, a motorcycle next to him toppled over his satay. As a result, his satay was dirty and no one then purchased it.
According to local resident, in this modern era, such strange incident remained to occur. Meanwhile, this Jero Agung Temple was venerated by three subak organizations namely the Subak Uma Telaga, Subak Nyembulan and Subak Nolangu. The temple area was often used as trekking path by the tourist guides because the temple had unique historical relics.

Some excavations had been done here by the Archaeological Institute of Denpasar. It was found many artifacts in the form of pottery shards, ceramic fragments, terracotta statues, tools used to melt the metal and a structure estimated to be a wall. Based on the artifacts and written sources, the experts presumed that a residential building (palace) was once established at the location owned by Sri Astasura Ratna Bumi Banten, the last king of ancient Bali originated from the XIV century AD.
