Pura Puseh, Bali Overview

The magnificent Pura Puseh Temple is home to the deities of the Holy Trinity of the Hindu religion, namely, Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Shiva, and its exquisite fa├žade, built in traditional Balinese fashion, only adds to its rustic beauty. With colossal split gates, multi-tiered thatched shrines, and stone figures that act as guardians of the place, the Pura Puseh Temple draws in large crowds of people from places near and far throughout the year. During religious festivities, the main temple is towered with flowers, fruits, and other offerings made to the Hindu gods and ancestral spirits of the devotees.

Gilded with gold and ornate with intricate engravings, the majestic Batuan Temple is located off the beaten track in a quaint village that goes by the same name. Locally referred to as the Pura Puseh Temple, this place of worship is a part of the three major temples in the village which are collectively referred to as the Tri Kahyangan.

History

Historical records show that the glorious Pura Puseh Temple was built in as early as the year 1020 AD, or 944 Isaka, as per the Balinese calendar. The Tri Kahyangan, or the Tri Murti concept, that the Pura Puseh Temple is a part of, was taught by the revered Mpu Kuturan to the people belonging to the Balinese Hindu community, following which the religious abode was constructed. The place of worship underwent a renovation in the year 1992.  

Significance

Sprawled across an area of almost six thousand and five hundred meters, the dignified Pura Puseh Temple is home to a number of shrines that are laid out within its premises. In keeping with the conventional style of Balinese architecture, this Hindu temple is made of three distinct parts, which are referred to as the Utama Mandala, or, the innermost area where the main temple is located, the Madya Mandala, which is the central part of the temple, and the Nista Mandala, which comprises the outermost area of the compound.
