Ratu Ayu Agung Mas Temple

Ratu Ayu Agung Mas TempleKubutambahan sub district is one of the regions in Northern Bali having quite large amount of temple buildings (shrines) included in the kahyangan jagat or universal temple. The temples in Kubutambahan are widely believed to invoke the healing of various diseases. One of the temples frequently used by local devotees to invoke healing is the Ratu Ayu Agung Mas Temple. It occurs at the same area as the Puseh Penegil Dharma Temple in Kubutambahan. This temple is located at seafront or in the north of the Singaraja-Amlapura road section.

In the southern part, it has a pond whose water comes from a spring appearing in the temple area. Such holy water is taken advantage by devotees to perform purificatory rite or malukat and to invoke healing of various diseases. The priest of Ratu Ayu Agung Mas Temple, Jro Mangku Artawan, explained that many pilgrims came from various regions in Bali and outside Bali to say prayers in the temple. Moreover, on the full moon coinciding with rerahinan (holy days) or new moon and other Hindu holidays, the number of pilgrims would be much more crowded than usual days.

As long as he served the pilgrims coming to say prayers, said Mangku Artawan, many of them invoked holy water for self-purification. Not only that, some of the pilgrims also often invoked the healing of illness. He pointed out, there were pilgrims suffering from mental disorder and other diseases. For those that would pray mostly offered the oblation known as praspejati. In addition, there were also pilgrims ordering the oblation having been prepared by local priest in the temple area. “Since I pay devotional service in this temple, such a service has existed and many people have confidence to invoke the self-healing and self-purification spiritually,” he explained.

He added the total area of the temple was approximately 100 square meters. The temple complex had some shrines such as the Ratu Ayu Agung Mas or commonly known as Ratu Ayu Mas Megreong. This deity was believed to spiritually provide self-healing or self-purification. At the moment, the shrine has not been equipped with compound wall. Luckily, in the north directly bordering with the beach has been protected with levees, so the shrine is not threatened by the coastal erosion. Several years ago, the supporting devotees of the temple restored the temple and equipped it with compound wall. However, the front side of the temple has not been equipped with the entrance gates or kori. (kmb/ole)
