Parsada Jagaddhita or literally means Ruler of Universe is a name dedicated to a statue in Karangasem Regency, Bali. This place is intended to become spiritual tourism that unites the Buddhist and Hindu people in the world. Additionally, this place is also a theme park equipped with the most sophisticated technology suitable for a family trip. The newest addition to this tourism site is the statue of Si Mian Fo or the Four Face Buddha.
This is a Brahma statue facing the Jaga Satru waterfall. Therefore, visitors who visit this theme park will not only see this magnificent statue but also enjoy the beauty of panorama around Jaga Satru. It stands tall on a hill overlooking the surrounding valley and will look magnificent with its golden color and the lush green hills around it as the background.
This place is actually a tourism site that has reached its peak around the 80s. However, poor management makes this park lost its attractiveness. With this new development by building the temple and magnificent Brahma statue, it is hoped that theme park will reach its full potential again.
Brahma is one of the three Tri Murti Gods in Hinduism and is believed as the creator of the universe. The strong belief to this Brahma makes the community around the Duda Timur Village decided to build this statue.There is a high philosophy behind the decision to build a Brahma statue in this theme park. As the creator of the universe, this statue will be the starting point for the development of Duda Timur Village tourism.
I Gede Pawana, the initiator behind this plan stated his reason why choosing Brahma statue for this valley. It was because the Siva statue has been built in Tabanan and Vishnu statue (Garuda Wisnu Kencana) has been built in Badung. With this reason, it is only logical to build the Brahma statue in Karangasem. This statue will stand tall 30 meters height in an area of 10 hectares.
The cost to build this statue is estimated to reach approximately IDR 2.8 billion by involving the third parties who have a high concern of Balinese nature and culture. They donate and sponsor this project to create this wonderful icon in Bali. However, the Jagaddhita foundation also opens a donation for those of you who wish to contribute to the building of this Brahma statue.
The building of this statue was started by the ceremony of laying the first stone and planting the ‘PancaDatu’ on March 24, 2019. This ceremony was attended by prominent and important figuresin Bali including Regional Secretary of Karangasem Regency Gede Adnya Mulyadi as the representative of Regent of Karangasem, Head of the Foundation of Parsada Jagaddhita Sony K Daniswara, and also the King of Bali, Ida Dalem Semaraputra.
The Brahma statue will be built by a statue maestro I Ketut Mare Sakah from Tohpati Village, Klungkung. It is estimated that the statue will take around 7 months to finish and has to be finished by October. The statue will be launched on November 9, 2019, to celebrate the anniversary of Si Mian Fo on that day. This celebration will be attended by national and local officials, also Monks and foreign guests.
It is hoped that this statue can be a new icon to be remembered and enjoyed all the time. But to reach this goal, the building of this magnificent statue will certainly cost huge money and will need huge help from people from all around. There are third parties who donate some of their fortunes to help to build this icon, but you can also help contribute to this ambition as well and become part of the founder of this statue.
