sakenan temple

 

well known

 
 

Serangan Island is a small island located across the southern coast of the Island of Ball. The Island Is part of Badung Regency.

 
  !  
 

At the south-western tip of the island, exactly on the beach is a holy structure known as Pura Sakenan. This temple is estimated to have been established in the 16th century and is connected with the journey of Dang' Hyang Nirartha, a great priest who purified the Hindu religion in Bali.odalan

In the western part of the Sakenan Temple grounds is a holy structure called Pura Dalem Sakenan which holds an ancient heritage called 'persada or candi' meaning monument made of coral stone with very attractive motifs for ifs relief. The motifs are quite different than those found in the existing buildings. The temple is exactly at the edge of the coastline and surrounded by sea. In the eastern part of Serangan island is another ancient temple called Pura Cemara. The temple grounds holds another holy structure called Gedong Cemara with a strange architecture and quite different from those found in Bali.

Apart from the magnificent sea view, there is something unique to be noted in that there are two groups of inhabitants of a different faith. One is of the Hindu faith and the other is Moslems. Never the less, they live peacefully and harmoniously, helping one another in the traditional 'gotong royong' spirit, meaning assisting one another without any intention of receiving a reward. The monuments or candi has a multi-tiered roofing and towers into the sky.

Denpasar to the south via Sesetan village to Pegok village. Turn to the right until you find 'Suwung Batan Kendal' village. It is accessible by car.boat From there you can continue your journey either on foot at low tide walking on a The monument or 'candi' reminds us to an assimilation of standard monuments and those found In East Java, which are multi-tiered from the pre-historic era. The gate is made of coral stone alike the one found in the Uluwatu Temple. Outside the walls there is a statue of a giant and there is also a Ganeca type statue, a symbol of Dewa Kala as the guardian of the temple.

The island of Serangan is about 10 km from bed of coral stones, or by proa at high tide to cover a distance of about 1 km to the Sakenan Temple. Have a nice trip !
