Gua Lawah, a shrine for Balinese Hindu
Pursuant to the papyrus of Dwi Jendra Tattwa, the Gua Lawah's name is Gua Lelawah, the name which is given by Danghyang Nirartha (a priest overspread the Hindu teaching in Bali) when he stop in this place on his Tirtha Yatra trips. He arrive at a cave which is a lot of bats hang on and its unbroken voice clamor as hymn to add the beauty of the cave. Therefore this cave is named by Gua Lawah/Bat Cave. On the above cave is growth by the flower trees with it's smelt fragrance and stimulus the peace mind of Danghyang Nirartha, so that he overnight stay for some nights in this place. From the cave we see also the beautiful coast with the blue ocean with Nusa Penida Island as a backdrop.
As the location of Besakih temple is relatively high on Mount Agung, when the sun rises at dawn, the early morning sun hits the spiral tops of the towering shrines of Besakih temple. This scenery is exotically beautiful.
Besakih temple (“Pura Besakih” in Balinese) is a temple complex in the village of Besakih on the slopes of Mount Agung in eastern part of Bali, Indonesia. It is the most significant, sacred, and the greatest temple of Hindu religion in Bali, and one of a series of Balinese temples. Situated in nearly 1000 meters up the slopes of Mount Agung(“Gunung Agung” in Balinese), it is an extensive complex of 23 separate but related temples with the largest and most important being “Pura Penataran Agung”. The temple was built on six levels, terraced up the slopes. The entrance was formed by a “Candi Bentar” (split gateway), and beyond it is the “Kori Agung” is the gateway to the second courtyard of the temple.
The main sanctuary of the complex is the Pura Penataran Agung. The symbolic center of the main sanctuary area is the lotus throne or Padmasana, which is therefore the ritual focus of the complex entirely. It was approximately built in the seventeenth century.
A series of eruptions of Mount Agung in 1963, which killed more or less 1,700 people also endangered Pura Besakih. The lava flows missed the temple complex by only very few meters. That the temple is safe from the eruptions has been regarded by the Balinese people as miraculous, and a signal from the gods that they wished to show their power but not to destroy the temple the Balinese faithful had erected.
