Padanggalak Beach

Padanggalak BeachIn addition to the beauty of Padanggalak Beach, there is also a mystical story which is quite interesting. The beach, located about 4 kilometers east of Denpasar is used by the Hindus as the place for Melasti and also pengelukatan seluiring mala or self purification.
Ketut Mardana as the local in the area stated that the area is called “karang panes” or hot land. “For that reason, there is no housing or tourism accommodation like villa in the area,” he added.
Mardana explained that Padanggalak beach is often used for Siwa Asta Tungku Dang Acarya procession or also known as ngangkid or meoton ceremony. On the nortj end of the beach, there is Campuhan, Taman Ayung and Kedewatan Temple. All of those temples are very old.

“This is what makes the area very sacred,” he said. He added that there was a holy man lived in the area and he built Kedewatan Temple. One day, an earthquake made the area flooded with mud up to Tanjung Benoa and Renon. The holy man felt disturbed with the tragedy and moved to Sanur Village.      
The Balinese belive that the beach has magical aura especially those who have six sense. They will feel the mystical aura. “There are many unreasonable incidents happen. There some people dragged to the middle of the ocean and many commit suicide by jumping into the sea. Most of them are young man,” Mardana explained.     

During the tenth month in Hindu (October), the wave is very big. At that time, there is no fishermen who dear to pass the area. “The sacredness of the beach is also connected with the myth of Ratu Kidul as the rules of southern sea,” he said.
The locals in the area also stated that Padanggalak Beach is the harbor for ghostly things. If they are doing their activity then no one should pass on the area or the human will get the consequences.  (image/ocha)
