Invoking Safety at Shrine under Sacred Fig Tree

Invoking Safety at Shrine under Sacred Fig TreeWhen making a visit to tourist attractions incidentally passing through Anggungan customary village in Mengwi, do not forget to ask for permission first to the unseen inhabitants of the village based on faith. The road section, precisely in front of the local cemetery, is famous for its awesomeness. Local people believe if the area is inhabited by invisible beings.

Awesomeness of the place is marked by the presence of a sacred fig, devil tree and large ficus tree. Under the tree sits the effigy of Goddess Durga, while on the west side follows the Dalem Temple of Anggungan village. Well, right in front of the effigy the passers-by usually put the offering to invoke safety.

According to Pan Mus, one of the local residents, people who would like to work both outside and inside the village and would pass through the location should beg for safety. At least, they asked for permission in mind. Sometimes, there were also people stopping for a while and put the offerings.
At least motor riders or car drivers were honking as a sign of asking for permission when passing through the area. Similarly, the passers-by did not dare speak rude or arrogant. “Once upon a time, a Javanese friend selling meatballs fell down at the cemetery area. The trader saw if it was the right way,” he said.

People with evil mind passing the area will definitely hurt. One of the invisible beings of the cemetery, namely a serpent, will get angry. “Once there was a man fishing but suddenly fled because he was hearing people crying in broad daylight,” he said.

On the contrary, if people have good intention, the invisible being in the area will deliver according to their demand. In addition to begging safety, the deity abiding in the shrine under the sacred fig is also generous. As proof, many people believe and come to invoke fortune and descent. (BTN/015)
