PURA MEDUWE KARANG

"If you are going to the north of Bali, then a visit to the Pura Meduw Karang temple should not be missing from your trip! The temple is located at Kubutambahan about 12 km east of Singaraja and is a beautiful, large, very abundantly decorated temple complex in North Balinese architecture."

          The Pura Meduwe Karang about 12 km east of Singaraja and is beautiful. It is considered as one of the most important temple of Bali, due to its size. Pura Meduwe Karang is known for its statues and flowery style of the decoration characteristic of North Bali. Very few tourists come to this temple.
The Pura Meduwe Karang (Balinese "temple of the (owner) landowner") was built in 1890 by people who came to Kubutambahan from an extinct Balinese village of Bulian.

The temple is dedicated to Batara Meduwe Karang ("lord possession of the land"), a god who ensures the protection of fertile land and crops. Pura Meduwe Karang also has buildings dedicated to the sun god Surya and the god of the Earth. All involved in protecting the fertility of the land. The temple complex is surrounded by walls, partially reinforced with pillars decorated with floral decorations.
The impressive entrance is enriched with 36 stone statues, which are characters from the Indian epic Ramayana. There are two split gates. The entire temple is walled and decorated with floral decorations and sometimes frightening sculptures in reliefs.

 

The first part is primarily a courtyard, which is mainly used for gatherings during religious celebrations. There is a pavilion in this courtyard, which is used for gamelan performances during certain events. The second part (jaba tengah) is accessible via a four-fold split gate.
On the third part, where the most sacred of the temple is located, you can see a famous relief. At first it seems to be a Balinese on a bicycle. But it is probably an image of the Dutch ethnologist W.O.J. Nieuwenkamp. In 1904 he explored Bali by bicycle, and that has probably been a whole show in that time that must have been recorded! That it must be a Westerner can be seen from the long nose, which Asians find such a striking characteristic of Westerners.

This is not the only image of a westerner in a Balinese temple: At the Pura Dalem, Jagaraga, east of Singaraja, a relief shows a car driven by bearded foreigners being held up by a gangster armed with a revolver.

Farmers from the area regularly come to the temple to make sacrifices to the god of the earth and to the sun god Surya, who is also god of the fields. In this way they hope to obtain fertility for their fields and a good harvest. With a little luck you can experience such an offering or colorful ceremony!
