The Gate to Heaven Bali


 

The Gate to Heaven Bali at Ini Vie Villa

You all are not unfamiliar with this Instagramable picture on the top left side of this article, are you? Well, yes, you all must have known this picture, since a lot of travel bloggers pose their best movement before they post their memories in this well-known spot. Lempuyang Temple that is how people call this place. Located in Tista Village, Abang District, Karangasem Regency of Bali especially in the most eastern part of Bali, the beauty of this popular temple is just undeniable.

 

 

Lempuyang temple itself is one of the parts of Sad Kahyangan Temples in Bali, meanwhile the other ones include Goa Lawah Temple, Besakih Temple, Uluwatu Temple, Batukaru Temple and Pusering Jagat Temple. Established by Mpu Kuturan in 11 AD, Lempuyang temple comprises 1700 staircases and  it is divided into 3 (three) main areas, namely:

 

  • Jabe Pisan (the part when you find the white candi bentar): you can spot some Bale (Balinese Gazebo or Pavilion) or even Bale Gong and Kulkul (Balinese traditional music).

 

  • Jaba Tengah (the three area with whitely painted portal): the part of Jaba tengah, especially the central area or portal is the area where sacred objects and offerings can pass during religious ceremony.

 

  • Jeroan: this is the most sacred and holy area of Lempuyang Temple. You can spot Pelinggih or Meru when you come to this area and usually becomes a place where Hindu communities worship The God.

 

 

Since this is a temple (a place where Hindu worshippers pray), this means that this place is considered as a holy place and you are forbidden to come inside when you are (especially women) in your monthly period time. Besides, you are not allowed to flirt, kiss, say something rude or do something that is dirty at this place. In addition, mind your dress code and dress politely, plus please do bring your own sarong or kamben when you get into Lempuyang Temple. Sarong is fabric that wrapped around the waist to ankle and usually you can also wear scarf in your waist if you wear sarong when visiting Temples in Bali. You could also rent the sarong if you don’t have it yourself. You are also prohibited to go inside the temple if you bring foods.

 

 

If you wish to visit this place, keep in mind that Lempuyang Temple is far from Denpasar and Kuta, besides the fact that the weather here is cool since this temple is 600 meters above the sea level. To get to this spot, it takes for about 2 hours from Ubud and more than 2 hours from Denpasar. The best time to go here is during sunrise, but how why? Well because if you expect to capture lots of moments here, you must arrive here earlier in the morning to avoid the crowd of visitors. The best time to enjoy the beauty of this place is before 9 in the morning (if you wish to get first-hand experience to watch sunset and feel the fresher balmy weather around that surrounds the temple) or after 3 in the late afternoon (for the ones who choose to capture the wonderful sunset view). Remember that your journey to arrive at Lempuyang Temple wouldn’t be as easy as you may think. It is recommended that you rent a car or if you wish you could consider riding your motorbike to get here.

 

So what you think? Does spend some of your time at Lempuyang Temple worth it? The answer is “Yes! It does. 110% worth it”.

Lawar and Babi Guling in Bali


 

Lawar and Babi Guling in Bali at Ini Vie Villa

The word “Lawar” might seem quite familiar for Balinese. Yes, this food has always been one of the most popular cuisines in Bali. In Galungan Day, some families feast and in many other Balinese rituals, you can hardly see Lawar is not served. In fact, you don’t have to wait for this food to be served until Galungan Day comes. If you are curious with the taste of Lawar, you can spot Lawar sellers easily spread on streets, markets and traditional Balinese Warung around Bali.

 

This famous Balinese food typically consists of some vegetables (like long beans) and chopped meat (chicken, pork) added by shrimp paste, chilis, turmeric, galangal and other traditional Balinese spices.

 

There are some selections of Lawar that you usually discover when you visit Bali, such as:

  1. Lawar Putih

This type of Lawar is the among the most common one, which made of grated coconut, meat added by vegetables and some spices like turmeric, chilli, pepper, shrimp paste and other types of Balinese traditional spices that we usually name it as “Basa Genep”.

 

  1. Lawar Barak

People call it Lawar Barak (Barak means Red in Balinese), due to the red color of this Lawar. Lawar Barak mainly made of chopped meat (it can be chicken or pork), vegetables, coconut and Balinese special spices added by raw meat blood (chicken or pork). The red color of this Lawar is mostly produced from the meat blood that is poured into this Lawar.

 

  1. Vegetable Lawar

If you are familiar with this flavored Lawar, this selection of Lawar usually made of long chopped bean added by Jackfruit or sometimes added by mango or other vegetables

 

Apart from these 3 types of Lawar, you may also discover other selections of Lawar in Bali, since restaurants and Lawar sellers try to offer some variations of ingredients added to Lawar to match it with their customers’ preferences.

 

Whenever you want to taste Lawar, you also may find Sate Lilit and Suckling Pig (Babi Guling) served along with Lawar itself. Balinese Sate Lilit is made of skewered grilled meat.  The word “Lilit” itself means to wrap around, in which it refers to the minced meat that is wrapped around the satay skewers. Travelers that come to Bali might taste Satay that made of grilled and skewered chicken or pork, and sometimes added by irresistible peanut sauce or chili sauce on it. In fact, if you expect to try Sate Lilit, you are not going to spot peanut sauce on it, instead, it is normally served with sambal or chili sauce.

 

Meanwhile Suckling Pig or we call it “Babi Guling” is a roasted pork usually concocted with typical Balinese spices like turmeric, black pepper, garlic and other Balinese traditional spices or usually known as “Basa Genep”. Originally Babi Guling is used as offerings for The God during Hindu Ceremonies, as a symbol of abundance shown by the Pork. The pork itself is slow-roasted in open fire until the meat is crispy and juicy. When it is served, Babi Guling is sliced into thin pieces of meat along with the aroma of Basa Genep in its juicy meat. Nowadays Babi Guling is widely known all over Bali and can be found during Balinese traditional ceremonies or in food stalls called “Warung Babi Guling”.

Nyepi Day


 

Nyepi Day at Ini Vie Villa

Nyepi Day

Every once in a year, Hindu Communities in Bali celebrate Nyepi Day or known as Balinese New Year (celebrated based on The Balinese Saka Calendar), in which the word “Nyepi” means to keep silent. It is usually celebrated after the spring equinox’s darkmoon when the duration of nighttime and daytime is approximately equal. During this Nyepi day, The Island of Bali usually stops all the activities for 24 hours. Therefore, it should be noted that all travelers that come to Bali during this Nyepi day should be aware that Bali becomes completely silent. All shops are closed, streets are deserted, I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport is also closed, all people turns off lights at home, no pedestrians are allowed to stay outside and all the noise should be lowered to its lowest level. During this Nyepi day, the atmosphere of tranquillity and peace enshroud Bali, making it feel like The Island of Paradise.

 

The purpose of Nyepi Day is to create deeper connection with the God (Ida Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa) through fasting, praying, and meditating while also reflecting on ourselves to improve value and love in creating peaceful life. Before the Nyepi Day comes, there are strings of ceremonies that should be held by Hindu communities in Bali.

 

The first ceremony is Melasti. Melasti or mekiis is usually conducted two or three days before Nyepi Day and its purpose is to conduct purification for Bhuana Agung (The Universe) and Bhuana Alit (Human Nature). Hindu communities in Bali usually bring Pratima (which is usually believed as the manifestation of the God) and all the effigies of Lord Ida Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa to the sea and purify it with colorful and long ceremonies.

 

A day after melasti or a day before the Nyepi Day usually named as “Pengerupuk”. All villages in Bali usually hold ceremonies in their villages’ main crossroads, which are believed as the places of all demons like to stay. On this day, villages in Bali hold ceremonies to chase away the evil forces or known as Bhuta Kala that is described as a giant and scary creature and likes to bother human’s life. All these evil forces or Bhuta Kala are manifested by Ogoh-Ogoh (The Giant Puppet) that is brought and paraded on the street by lots of people during this “Pengerupuk” day. Well-known Ogoh-Ogoh parade usually held on “Pengerupuk” Day normally starts at 5 or 6 pm by men in all villages in Bali accompanied by Gamelan music, kulkul (traditional bamboo musical instrument). Each village usually produces its own ogoh-ogoh a few months before Nyepi day comes, through support from local boys and older men in designing it. This Ogoh-ogoh usually can be up to 25 feet tall, and is decorated with colorful paint, and clothing to make it looks similar with Bhuta Kala. Travelers that come to Bali can make this as a wonderful attraction while experiencing their true Nyepi Day.

 

This ogoh-ogoh parade is also followed by Pecaruan offering, and Tawur Kesange, which are rituals to win the battle over Bhuta Khala and evil forces that disturb humans in creating peaceful life. This offering usually made of animals such as ducks, pigs, chicken and also added by plants, fruits, and crops. After the parade is done, usually Ogoh-Ogoh is burned into ashes, which symbolizes vanished Bhuta Kala and Evil Forces. In addition, on Pengerupuk day, Hindu families in Bali chase away all the evil forces and spirits (bhuta kala) around their houses by using pots, pans and clank it repeatedly along with torch made of fiery bamboo.

 

A day after “Pengerupuk” day is when the silent mode in Bali happens.

On this Nyepi Day, it is obligatory to meditate and do the catur brata penyepian. This Catur Brata Penyepian usually consists of:

 

  1. Amati Karya (no work or any significant physical activities)

Besides not allowed to go out, Hindu people in Bali are forbidden to do physical activities or go to work, or what we call as “Amati Lelungan” on Nyepi Day. Hindu communities are encouraged to meditate and do more of spiritual activities on this day in celebrating the Balinese Hindu New Year.

 

  1. Amati Lelungan (no travelling)

Streets are completely deserted on Nyepi day, since “Amati Lelungan” means that no one is permitted to go outside. Travelers cannot wander around the streets or plan to have fun at the beach on this day. There will be “Pecalang” that will be ready to make sure that all is well and no one is on the street on Nyepi Day.

 

  1. Amati Lelanguan (No merrymaking)

Hindu communities are also not allowed to have much self-entertainment and create much noise on Nyepi Day. Therefore, travelers that come to Bali should be aware that during this day, their mobile internet connection runs slowly and some local TV stations will be turned down.

 

  1. Amati Geni (No fire)

Hindu communities in Bali are not allowed to lit any fire or turn on the lamp during Nyepi day, this is what we call as “Amati Geni” in Catur Brata Penyepian. Bali usually becomes completely dark all day long, since all shops, hotels and buildings need to turn off all the lamps during this day. Travelers that come to Bali need to make sure that they do not turn on the lamp on this day.

 

A day after Nyepi day is called “Ngembak Geni” when Hindu communities can go out and visit their families, friends and relatives to strengthen the value of peaceful life. Hindu people usually also visit some tourism places with their families or friends to enjoy Ngembak Geni Day.
