Peacefull of the Rambut Siwi Temple Spread Religious Aura in Bali

What Are Special about Rambut Siwi Temple So That Makes People Come There Over and Over?

Bali is truly worthy of being called the island of the Gods not only because of its beautiful natural attractions. But behind it all, there is religious tourism which is the main guideline for citizens who still hold on to religious values and uphold the nation's traditional customs. One of the religious attractions that are listed in the top 5 Bali's dream destination is Bali’s Rambut Siwi Temple. Let's dig down anything that can be a tourist magnet for this religious nuance.

 

History of Dang Kahyangan Temple

This story began when a great guru from the land of Java named Dang Hyang Nirartha visited the island of Bali. When he passed a parahyangan or a holy place for prayer, a janitor asked him to carry out the prayer in parahyangan. In addition to asking Dang Hyang Nirartha to pray, the janitor also added a scary story that anyone who does not pray in the parahyangan will be torn to pieces by a tiger.

Dang Hyang Nirartha obeyed the janitor's request. When Dang Hyang Nirartha carried out meditation and yoga solemnly, suddenly the parahyangan building collapsed ruined.

Cry the janitor for his mistake. So, with full of regret, he apologized to Dang Hyang Nirartha and requested the parahyangan be re-established firmly as usual.

Seeing this, Dang Hyang Nirartha couldn't bear to let him cried. Then he returned to build the shrine as it should. When the parahyangan building stood back upright, Dang Hyang Nirartha also pulled out a strand of his hair and told the janitor to put it on one of the leading statues in parahyangan for siwi or worship. The aim and purpose are for everyone who visits and prays there to be given safety and health. That is why this huge and beautiful temple is now called the Rambut Siwi Temple.

Location of Dang Hyang Jagat Temple

Its location in Yeh Embang Kangin village, Kec. Mendoyo, Kab. Jembrana. About 17 km east of Negara and on the edge of the main highway Denpasar – Gilimanuk.


The Meaning of Temples for Hindus in Bali

For Hindus in Bali, the worship in the temple is a ritual that must be done to get safety, security, wealthiness, and healthiness. This can be seen along the Bali - Gilimanuk road, many vehicles stop just to visit the temple and pray so that they are blessed throughout the journey. This unique sight is very rarely found elsewhere. When in other places people are competing to drive the vehicle speed to get to the destination, here vehicles are competing to be able to stop at Pura and do worship.

 

What Makes Temple So Special?

Actually, many places in Bali are so special to visit. But why so many people like to be sedated to visit the temple of this Dang Hyang? Its presence cannot be ignored. This kind of obligatory ritual for anyone visiting Bali must visit this special temple. In addition to its beautiful natural scenery, located on the edge of a cliff and the sea overlooking the Indian Ocean is a limitless charisma.

A thick spiritual nuance and the requirements of religious aura are felt. This is a very ideal place to do meditation, worship, and yoga. You can also get the advantage of a comfortable, restful, and peaceful atmosphere to channel your hobby into a selfie. Many spots that you can make camera-friendly for your social media. It can also be for business ideas as well.

That it is, I think that's what I can say here about Rambut Siwi temple which has an extraordinary appeal.
