Temples on Bali

In every village in Bali, there are several temples and at least one small one in each home. One can therefore safely say that there are more temples than homes in Bali. Most of these temples are shrines and might not be regarded as actual temples, but the number of walled compounds is believed to reach to a total of 10,000.

Pancering Jagat temple
Hundreds of temples for religion and tourism

The temple of Pancering Jagat is location at Trunyan village, Kintamani District. The name of the temple is derived from the megalithic statue with 4 meters high, locally known as Arca da Tonta or Ratu Gede Pusering Jagat among the common people. The ceremony in this temple takes place on purnamaning sasih kapat around October.

On the same accession the Barong Brutuk dance is performed for commemorating the legendary wedding anniversary between Ratu Sakti Pancering Jagat; the patron guardian of the village and Ratu Ayu Dalem Pingit (Ratu Ayu Dalem Dasar). This temple is worshipped only by the people of Trunyan.
