Tari : Barong Landung

Barong Landung dikenal lebih sakral dan diyakini kekuatannya sebagai pelindung dan pemberi kesejahteraan umat. Barong Landung banyak dijumpai disekitar Bali Selatan, seperti daerah Badung, Denpasar, Gianyar, Tabanan.

Sejarahnya dimulai pada abad VI dimana Raja Bali saat itu adalah Sri Jaya Kesunu yang memiliki seorang istri dan anak Mayadenawa. Raja Jaya Kesunu memiliki beberapa orang penasehat kerajaan diantaranya adalah Empu Liem sebagai penasehat spiritual dan satu lagi orang chinese sebagai penasehat ekonomi. Satu hari, permaisuri wafat yang mengakibatkan Jaya Kesunu sangat sedih hatinya. Beliau murung terus dan kerajaan jadi terbengkalai.

Akhirnya Mayadenawa dinobatkan sebagai Raja Bali menggantikan ayahnya Jaya Kesunu. Untuk menghilangkan kesedihan Jaya Kesunu, penasehat kemudian benisiatif menjodohkan salah seorang putri saudagar cina bernama Kang Che We sbg istri kedua Jaya Kesunu. Melihat kecantikan Kang Che We, Jaya Kesunu pun jatuh hati dan menikahinya. Sejak itu Jaya Kesunu kembali terlihat gembira dan ceria. Tapi malang, keinginan Jaya Kesunu untuk mendapat anak dari Kang Che We tidak terkabul karena sang putri Kang mandul.

Karena cintanya pada Putri Kang, Jaya Kesunu memerintahkan Empu Liem membuat satu tarian sebagai lambang dari dirinya dengan putri Kang. Oleh Mpu Liem, dibuatkanlah 2 patung besar yang bisa ditarikan menyerupai bentuk manusia. Yang satu berwajah laki-laki dengan karakter wajah lokal berwarna hitam sebagai lambang dari Jaya Kesunu. Satu lagi adalah perempuan berwajah putih dengan muka cemberut tapi memancarkan sinar keibuan sebagai lambang putri Kang. Keduanya kemudian disebut Barong Landung .

Uluwatu temple-spectacular hindu’s temple

Uluwatu Temple, a must to see…
The stunning Uluwatu temple is located right on an edge of a cliff on the southern tip of the Badung Peninsula. This sea temple is one of the five temples dedicated to the gods who guard the sea.

The Uluwatu temple is not as impressive as other Balinese temples, but the cliffs dropping 100 metres into the clear blue Indian Ocean creates a dramatic and amazing setting.
Because of its remote location there are hardly any visitors at the temple. But if you are able to find time to drive there, you should. You’ll be surprised about the whole landscape.

Everybody who visits the temple complex must wear a sarong and a temple scarf which can be obtained at the entrance for a small donation.
Before arriving at the actual Uluwatu temple you have to walk a couple of metres pass colonies of macaque monkeys. Some say that they can be really aggressive.

You have to climb 71 stairs before you reach the temple.

The Uluwatu temple was built in the 16th century by Danghyang Nirartha, a Javanese Hindu priest who fled to Bali after the Majapahit kingdom collapsed in Java due to the influence of the Islam. It is said that Nirartha achieved enlightment at Uluwatu.

But the story does not stop here…

A Balinese legend describes how the gods of the Majapahit kingdom followed their people when they fled from Java to Bali. The ship of Dewi Danu, the goddess of water, finally arrived at Uluwatu.
Once she touched the shore, a cliff rose hundred meters up on which the temple now stands. The pointy cliff reflects the bow of her ship.

The official name of the temple is Pura Luhur Uluwatu, ‘Ulu’ means ‘head‘; ‘Watu’ means ‘rock’ and ‘Luhur’ is a combined description of the words ‘heavenly, ancestral, original and inspiring’.

The temple is made from coral and therefore the temple must have been sparkling white once. But due to many centuries of erosion it has now its current dark colour.

The meru with the 3 roofs and that stands on the edge of the cliff is dedicated to Shiva, the destroyer.

About a century ago only the prince of Badung was aloud to enter the temple however he was killed by the Dutch during the ‘puputan’ in 1906.

Now it is maintained by the royal Denpasar family but is owned by the Balinese people.

The Uluwatu temple is especially important for the Balinese fishers who worship Dewi Laut, the sea goddess.

You can walk around the whole temple complex except for the ‘jeroan’, the inner most courtyard. This area is off limits to non-worshippers but can be viewed from the side. On both sides of the temple there are paths along the ridge of the cliff.

If you take the path to the right and walk pass the ‘bale’ where you can sit in the shade for a while, you will finally end up at the edge of another cliff from where you can take amazing pictures of the temple, the cliffs and the Indian Ocean.

On the left side of the Uluwatu temple there is an open-air theater where every night at 6 pm you can witness a kecak dance performance. The whole temple setting will definitely make the performance more spectacular.

Tari : Sang Hyang Dedari

Sebagaimana namanya, tari Sanghyang Dedari ini termasuk tarian sakral yang tidak untuk dipertontonkan sebagai fungsi pertunjukan, tetapi hanya diselenggarakan dalam rangkaian upacara suci. Tarian ini dilakukan oleh sepasang gadis cilik yang belum akil balig. Sebelum menari, kedua gadis tadi diupacarai untuk memohon datangnya sang Dedari ke dalam badan kasar mereka. Prosesi diiringi dengan paduan suara gending sanghyang yang dilakukan oleh kelompok paduan suara wanita dan pria. Kedua gadis itu kemudian pingsan, tanda bahwa roh dedari telah merasukinya.

Kemudian beberapa orang membangunkan dan memasangkan hiasan kepalanya, kedua gadis dalam keadaan tidak sadar, dibawa ke tempat menari. Di tempat menari, kedua gadis kecil itu diberdirikan di atas pundak dua orang pria yang kuat. Dengan iringan gamelan Palegongan, kedua penari menari-nari di atas pundak si pemikul yang berjalan berkeliling pentas. Gerakan tarian yang dilakukan mirip dengan tari Legong. Selama tarian berlangsung, mata kedua gadis itu tetap tertutup rapat. Menari di atas bahu seseorang tanpa terjatuh, tidak mungkin dilakukan oleh gadis-gadis cilik dalam keadaan sadar, apalagi biasanya si gadis belum pernah belajar menari sebelumnya. Sungguh menakjubkan.

Tarian suci ini diadakan dalam upacara memohon keselamatan dari bencana atau wabah penyakit yang menyerang suatu desa. Tarian ini terdapat di daerah Badung, Gianyar, dan Bangli. (sumber : babadbali)
