Mount Agung and Pura Besakih (Temple) are one unity

Bali has many mountains. In the middle of this island is a cluster of mountains that stretch from the western part of the island to the east. Clearly, the north side with the south is separated by a mountain. The mountains in the middle of the most famous island of Bali are Mount Agung and Batur. Because these mountains make Bali a very religious and mystical island, with a high spiritual nuance of the Balinese. Because the mountain is believed to be the abode of the gods, ancestral spirits, and various other magical elements.

The island of Bali is also known as Pulau Seribu Pura / island of the gods, as it has thousands of temples scattered throughout the island. Pura Besakih is the mother of thousands of temples in Bali. This temple is located in the central part of the mountain slope. But there is one temple that is located higher than Pura Besakih, is Pura Pasaragung located almost at the top of the mountain, very close to the crater.

Besakih Temple is always crowded by the people during the celebration

Besakih Temple is located on the southwestern slopes of Mount Agung located in Besakih Village, Rendang District, Karangasem Regency. It is the largest temple in Indonesia because it is a complex of many temples within a region. Consisting of a single main temple namely Pura Penataran Agung Besakih, like a kingdom with various states, Pura Penataran Agung Besakih is the king of the temple companion that surrounds it, 1 Pura Basukian and 17 other temples.

Referred to as the mother of the temple in Bali as a center of religious activities of Hindus from all temples in Bali. By using the main location at Penataran Agung Temple Besakih. As the main temple, this temple certainly has the most places and buildings for worship.

The existence of Pura Besakih is not only a place of worship of God. But it has a connection with Mount Agung. The highest mountain in Bali is believed to be the center of the natural government of the spirits of the ancestors, the nature of the gods who became God's messenger for the island of Bali. That is why this mountain is very guarded for its sanctity.

Besakih Temple also contains philosophical meanings about cultural elements such as knowledge system, life equipment and technology, social organization, livelihood, language system, religion and ceremony and artistry.

It is not yet clear why Pura Besakih was chosen as a center by the ancestors of the Balinese in ancient times, but almost certainly because this mountain has been a place of life since prehistoric times. It is estimated that the base of Pura Penataran Agung Besakih stone and some other temples that resemble megalithic to the pyramid, at least about 2000 years old. Besakih Temple has also been included in the list of UNESCO world heritage site proposal since 1995 but until now still not approved.

Yet there is another historical evidence of the origin of Pura Besakih. That ancient time a pastor from Java took a thousand students to open a new recital in Bali, precisely in the Village Taro. Many mystical events occur when it begins to open the forest. Many of the pastor's followers die unnaturally. Then the priest did the meditations, and was told that Bali is a very haunted and consecrated place. Thus the minister made a ritual on the slopes of Mount Agung to request permission from the gods and ancestors to open the forest. After the ritual the process of clearing the forest becomes smooth and without significant constraints. Since then the location of the ritual becomes a place to build Pura Besakih to this day.

To visit Pura Besakih in must wear polite clothes with subordinate cloth like a sarong as a foot cover. With entrance ticket for Rp. 15 thousand per person. When coming in the period of 11 April to 3 May, visitors will see first hand the biggest religious ceremony in Bali held once a year named Batara Turun Kabeh Ceremony.

Even small earthquakes continue to happen lately. Will the Mountain be going to erupt right now? See also: Mount Agung Bali current activities seem to be erupting.

According to the Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG), Geological Agency of the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, the agency said that it has raised the status of Gunung Agung in Bali from normal to alert (level II). This is based on the increased activity of the volcano in Bali.

Starting from Thursday, September 14, 2017, 2 pm Bali time, the status of the volcano was raised after a month ago there was an increase in seismic activity. Formerly rare earthquake activity. But since last month, there has been a significant increase. Continuous improvement and steady increase. The ongoing earthquake activity has recently changed the status of the volcano in Bali.


Currently based on an institution that monitors akfitas Gunung Agung Bali has recommended the imposition of a ban near the crater of the mountain up to a radius of 3 kilometers. The goal is to anticipate that no one climbs to the top of the mountain because kegempaannya activity is rather high. It is feared there is a volcanic gas blast from inside the crater that is dangerous for climbers.

Although the status of Mount Agung has become alert, but the area around the mountain was declared still safe. At the bottom of the mountain is still declared safe, only on the top is dangerous. If there is an increase in activity, the agency will have an evaluation. The observation of increased volcanic activity will depend on the incoming data from the monitoring of the mountain.

Mount Agung Bali current activities seem to be erupting

The information from these mountain climbers is at the bottom of the crater now visible bursts of small hot water that is likely a boiling water resulting from the temperature of the crater is getting hotter. See also: Now, the status of Gunung Agung Bali is wary.

Will Mount Agung Bali erupt? The most unexpected question of most Balinese. Because a few decades ago this mountain once erupted, resulting in many casualties, many Balinese died from the eruption of Mount Agung. If Mount Agung erupts at this time. So big panic will happen in Bali. Many residents live around the mountain. Even this mountain has been considered to be the place of the ancestral spirits and the gods for the Balinese.

Currently, the scary activities in the crater of Mount Agung are very often seen and heard by the climbers guide. A rumbling sound from the bottom of the crater indicates a great activity from within the mountain. Hot springs and small lava are sometimes seen. The lava on the crater also shows the growing smoke. The visible smoke was probably hot money, probably also from the lava inside the mountain.

If there is a growing vibration from the seismograph recording, then the possibility of this mountain activity shows signs of eruption. Because the sounds from inside the crater are very loud audible. Rumbling sounds like a boil of water in a frying pan, yet more enlarged and echoing.

Residents of Bali are also surprised by the circulation of videos stating there is an increase in volcanic activity of Mount Agung. The video footage looks pretty convincing even though it is not fully justified by the authorities. Video duration of about 82 seconds (1 minute 20 seconds) it shows the condition of the crater and the crater of Mount Agung.

Head of Regional Disaster Management Agency (BPBD) Karangasem, admitted also saw the video. According to him, the video recording has been coordinated with Dewa Merta Yasa as the monitoring officer at Monitoring Post Rendang. The result, it is true a month lately there is an activity that is a small earthquake several times.

The observation of the mountain declared visually Mount Agung in a month is clearly visible until covered by fog 0-I until 0-III. By the time the mountain is clear, the crater smoke is not visible and the sound of the fall is not heard.

Coral reefs are severely damaged, bad impacts of tourism growth in Nusa Penida and Lembongan

Now, the Marine Conservation Area (KKP) of Nusa Penida and Lembongan Bali are getting new problems due to the growth of tourism activities. The problem is that coral reefs along the coast are continuously harming the damage. After the destruction of coral reefs by a number of tourists, and the destruction of coral reefs with the bleeding effect of climate change, there is now the destruction of coral reefs due to pontoon pontoons.

Two things that are dominantly visible are the shrinking pipe weight of the pontoon rope, dragging the ocean currents and causing the coral reefs to crumble. Also a number of tourist aids, underwater paths of concrete and iron are placed on a stretch of coral reefs. This type of branched aropora coral is susceptible to this physical stress being broken. It is found in the most severe areas of damage ie Mangrove Point, Nusa Lembongan.

Initial information is rumored that environmentalists and divers in Nusa Lembongan Bali (one of the islands in Nusa Penida cluster). Nusa Lembongan is the location of coral reef damage identified to date. There are photos of the destruction of coral reefs allegedly caused by pontoon-bound concrete that dragged ocean currents. So that hit the coral reefs in the seabed.

Damage to coral reefs occurred due to the tourism managers are considered to have neglected and neglected to the impact of coral reef ecosystem damage, for the benefit only, including the weak supervision of relevant agencies that oversee tourism activities in the region. Monitoring results show the damage of coral reefs due to the movement of concrete based on the sea where the moorings and the material of the tourist facilities, it has occurred in Mangrove Point Nusa Lembongan Bali.

Damage to coral reefs in the area of Nusa Penida and Lembongan Bali raises the concerns of many parties, the impact of the development of marine tourism destinations in the region. Someday this area is likely to be abandoned tourists, so that the dim potential tourism Nusa Penida and Lembongan Bali. When strict action is required on tourism managers who are proven to cause coral reef damage to ensure that damage does not occur continuously.

There are at least 6 pontoon at Mangrove Point, a conservation area that should be sterile from anchor activity or ship mooring. Each shipowning company has its own pontoon, and each business has more than one ship. While the zoning is clear, the area that may be used and not. Along the mangroves there should be no pontoon including permanent and semi-permanent accommodation. But the fact is there is a year of ship belching activity in the middle of the sea that eventually proved to damage the coral reefs. Pontoons of concrete and iron are attracted by ocean currents and easily break the corals around the pontoon. The ships that bring tourists looking for an instant road by throwing anchors at the snorkeling and water sports mangrove point.

In addition to the impact of anchor and concrete pontoon binding, there is also a seawalker tourism practices or running under water with a special tool that tadak in accordance with the area, because under the sea coral cluster is not sand. So the tourists have to walk among the coral reefs which consequently damage the ecosystem.

For the prevention of increasingly severe and long-term damages, there must be regulation about the capacity of tourists to the Nusa Penida KKP. So it can be known how many pontoon needs and other means not to damage the coral reefs.

Traffic congestion in Ubud Bali makes it not the best tourist destination

Ubud Gianyar Bali is now the most sought after tourist destination. It had a bad impact on the increasingly crowded traffic. Traffic congestion in Ubud has become a nightmare of tourists who are on vacation. On time to reach the tourist attraction has become the most impossible thing to get when through the road in Ubud.

Many problems that hit the area of Ubud Gianyar Bali should be immediately addressed by the government. The plan of local government will make new rules and regulations related to Ubud. In the new regulation will set all things about Ubud including roads and traffic congestion that is very difficult to overcome if not done firmly.

Chairman of the Association of Indonesia Tourisme & Travel Agencies (ASITA) Bali, I Ketut Ardana said in addition to trigger inconvenience, congestion in Ubud already disrupt the travel agency program. "From reservation we have set how long here, well when enter here (Ubud-red) with conditions like this all so disturbed.

The survey conducted by Travel & Leisure, Ubud Bali is ranked 9th as the world's best tourist destination. Last year Ubud was in the top three. This survey has shown that Ubud is no longer the best destination. Assessment by Travel & Leisure to its readers who have been traveling to Ubud. Ubud scores only 90.13. With these scores, Ubud becomes the 9th best city in the world and the 4th best city in Asia.

Fair if Ubud is now not the best destination in the world. Because the most hated thing from tourism activities is vacation. Because many trips become obstructed not in time until the tourist attraction. Hotel reservations are also being disturbed.

Not only traffic congestion, sidewalks as pedestrian places also need to be addressed. Because many infrastructures for pedestrians have now been damaged and perforated, very dangerous for safety. Drainage also needs treatment. During the rainy season Ubud often floods. The smell of sewer and clogged drainage is also very disturbing. The stench from the garbage piled on the drainage canal.

The large number of people in Ubud has had an adverse impact on the environment and city governance. Growing into the center of the economy in Bali. The economic sector continues to grow the impact of tourism development is increasingly stretched. A lot of pollution happens, from many sources of pollution and to many places around it.

Tourist complaints against the condition of Ubud is now increasingly peaked. The procurement of the shuttle bus is seen as an urgent need, in order to break down the congestion in the tourist village. Congestion in Ubud is disturbing the travel agency program. From reservation is set how long here, well when entering into Ubud Gianyar Bali with conditions like this all become disturbed, because of traffic jams.
