Therefore, to preserve human life from evil spirits, founded a Penunggun Karang in every yard.
The spirits that haunts, such as the spirit of the old man's body was not cremated, or unnatural death, such as buried large buttresses (which never happened in Bali in the 18th century) will be looking for another place to live and scrambling.
To protect themselves from interference haunting spirits, people built Penunggun Karang / Palinggih Sedahan.
