Gaduh Temple

Gaduh Temple In the village Blahbatuh about 10 kilometers west of the city of Gianyar, is the southernmost temple of ancient antiquity Pejeng Kingdom. Currently, the exterior of Gaduh Temple is still very much needed facelift and interior will remain the same. Gaduh Temple was actually destroyed by an earthquake in 1917 and was rebuilt and repaired.

The interior of the church is structured like all Balinese Pura than a little fanciful sculpture that can be seen on the main staircase inside Candi Bentar. Notable Antiquity of Pura is a massive stone head of Kebo Iwo-portrait. Comes of 14 C, however it is strangely distant from the Hindu / Javanese icons structured in this period.

Kebo Iwo served as minister last Balinese king Bedulu, who was a despot by nature and a boar’s head. During the invasion in 1343 AD Majapahit king Bedulu kingdom was defeated Gadjah Mada. The interior of the temple is structured the same as all Balinese Pura except for the rather fanciful carvings which can be seen on the main stairway inside the Candi Bentar.

The remarkable antiquity of this Pura is the massive stone head-portrait of Kebo Iwo. It dates from the 14th C, however it is strangely afar from the Hindu/Javanese icons structured during this period. Kebo Iwo served as a minister to the last Balinese king, Bedulu, who was a despot by nature and had the head of a boar.

During the Majapahit invasion in 1343 AD, the King of the Bedulu Kingdom was defeated by Gadjah Mada.
