Pancering Jagat Temple

Pancering Jagat Temple is located in Trunyan village, Kintamani. The temple’s name is taken from Arca da Tonta or Ratu Gede Pusering Jagat, a megalithic 4-meter high statue. The ceremony in this temple is usually held on Purnamaning Sasih Kapat around October.

Barong Brutuk dance is performed on the ceremony to commemorate the legendary wedding anniversary of Ratu Sakti Pancering Jagat ; the guardian of the village and Ratu Ayu Dalem Pingit (Ratu Ayu Dalem Dasar). This dance can only be performed by adolescent boys (Sekeha Teruna) of that village.

The boys, together with the village elders, must fulfill certain requirements such as be successful in holiness ceremony for 42 days in Pancering Jagat Temple with certain offerings.
