Penjor Galungan is relegius penjor nature, which has a specific function in religious ceremonies, and must be complete with amenities.


Galungan celebration

Galungan, the anniversary of the victory of Dharma (virtue) over Adharma (sleaze). Galungan is celebrated every 210 days, right on Wednesday Kliwon wuku Dungulan (Balinese calendar). In India called the Feast of Dasarni Wijaya, only different languages but the meaning is the same. Hindus make offerings presented to Sang Hyang Widhi and Deity of Lord / with all manisfestasinya as a sign of gratitude for blessings and for further safety.

The word "Galungan" comes from the Old Javanese language, which means win or fight. Galungan also synonymous with Dungulan, which also means victory. Because it is in Java, the eleventh wuku called Wuku Galungan, while at the eleventh Wuku Bali called Wuku Dungulan. Name is different, but means the same thing. As in Java in the details there as Legi pancawara while in Bali called Umanis, which means the same: sweet.

Somewhat difficult to ascertain how the origin of this Galungan. When actually celebrated Galungan first in Indonesia, especially in Java and in other areas, especially in Bali. Drs. I Gusti Agung Gede Putra (former Director General of the Hindu and Buddhist Guidance Department of Religious Affairs) estimates, Galungan Hindus have long celebrated in Indonesia before the feast was celebrated in the popular island of Bali. This allegation is based on the Old Javanese language papyrus was named Song of Flag Amalat Rasmi. However, exactly when it celebrated Galungan in from outside, and whether the same name Galungan, still unanswered, for sure.

But in Bali, there are sources that provide a bright spot. According to the Purana Lontar Bali Dwipa, Galungan first celebrated on Purnama Kapat, Budha Keliwon Dungulan (Balinese calendar), or the year 804 Saka year 882 AD.

Galungan core is to unite the spiritual strength to get the mind and the establishment of the light. Spiritual union and the bright minds here in the form of dharma. While all the chaos that thought is a form of adharma.


 




Jembrana Regency

Jembrana is the most western district of the Province of Bali has a very strategic position and is the main connecting line all the activities and information flows between the towns on the island of Java to Bali, NTB and NTT through the land. And no doubt, Jembrana development in all areas showed a significant development. In the past ten years, Jembrana keep clean and improve a variety of resources both human and natural.

Jembrana was originally divided into four districts whose office is located on the main road (National road) covering most of western succession is Melaya, Negara, Mendoyo and Pekutatan. Since the year 2008, Negara District bloomed into 2 of the State itself and the District of Jembrana District. And since then Jembrana divided into five districts. Total rural / urban village located in Jembrana are 51 villages / village with details of each
districts are as follows:
1. District of Melaya: 10 villages / village
2. District of Negaro: 12 villages / village
3. District of Jembrana: 10 villages / village
4. District of Mendoyo: 11 villages / village
5. District of Pekutatan: 8 villages

Jembrana region has two seasons namely the rainy season and dry season. Season occurs in the Jembrana is generally not much different from the season that occurred in Indonesia who are affected by wind currents blowing from Australia which does not contain much moisture. This resulted in the dry season in Indonesia. Instead in December to March the wind flow emanating from Asia and the Pacific Ocean and contains a lot of water vapor across the land in Indonesia that is a concern of the rainy season. Rainfall is strongly influenced by climatic conditions, location and velocity of air current goegrafis. Air temperature ranged Jembrana 20C-39C with optimum temperature of 29C - 32c, air humidity between 74-87%.

As in other districts also carry out development in all areas, land transfer to non-wetland (not) fields can not be avoided.

Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Bali

Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Cultural Park is located in the hills overlooking the white rocks extend Kuta beach in the distance. Ngurah Rai airport can be seen clearly from this place. Idea of ​​where this came from I Nyoman Nuartha maestro who was one of the sculptor who came from Bali. In this place will be built a statue of Lord Vishnu who was riding an eagle. It is hoped that it could become an icon of international tourism in Bali when the later is completed.

Garuda Wisnu Kencana, seems to be the largest mega project under construction in Bali. Imagine, a plan to build 146-meter-tall statue with eagle wings wide by 66 meters was estimated to have weighed 4000 tons. Made using the material in the form of a mixture of copper and brass are in a particular part to be coated with gold mosaics.

Currently most of these sculptures can be seen at the site in the form of half-body statue of the god Vishnu and the head of an eagle. The statue will be the largest and the world's tallest statue statue of liberty beat that only has 46 meters high and weighs 204 tons. GWK project worth Rp 1,000,000,000,000 is threatened jam. However, before the road project, the manager had said the funding ranted there.

Residents around GWK pessimistic project will run. In addition to the internal conflicts within the management bodies also cause a breakdown of the project. With concurrent changes in the investment management also influential.

One more thing the problem is the position of this statue of Vishnu. Lord Vishnu is typically located in the North, but the statue pedestal is located in the South. Some say from where it had violated the terms of the Palace of the Gods, but there is a call that does not matter, as long as you interpret correctly the position, not the North from the South alone.


Bali will have a toll road over the sea

Bali will have a toll road over the sea! Wow, an idea that will be realized by the government for the smooth traffic on roads and airport seputaran two important regions of the world tour the Nusa Dua and Benoa area. The launch of the highway project has been conducted from December 21 last.

Congestion lately getting worse. Not only cause loss of time, but on the other hand would make a bored and disappointed tourists walk in the area of Nusa Dua and Benoa.

Congestion problems in the area of the airport I have experienced too often, even traffic jams occur almost every day from morning till night. There is no road connecting the airport and Benoa unless we are willing to turn toward the north through the city of Denpasar to tens of kilometers. And even then no guarantee we will also be free from congestion.

road construction, is designed to reduce the current congestion often occurs on the path to the Nusa Dua Denpasar. In addition to connecting Denpasar to Nusa Dua, the toll road will facilitate access to Ngurah Rai of the area.

The motorway has a length of about 12 kilometers and is built on the sea. To that end, the construction was needed about 18,000 concrete piles along the 18 meter and 60 centimeters in diameter. Highway construction is targeted for completion in May 2013. The choice of highway construction on the sea is because in addition to cope with congestion also has the potential to earn income. The road will be operated as toll roads in other areas in Indonesia, the system of pay that applied for its users.

Highway construction plans have been considered carefully by the Ministry of Public Works, Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Tourism and Culture, Ministry of Interior, Bali Province, Denpasar City Government, County delinquent, and leaders / community leaders Bali, including the toll road plan is above the sea??, not above the mangrove forests, mangrove forests are affected by the toll road to a minimum endeavored to preserve the mangrove conservation area. Attempts were not exposed to public land (using land that is owned by the government), Still keep the harmony that has been formed / happening in the local community. Do not move / change the locations of places of worship or places consecrated as temples. It has been agreed with management of mangrove forests to make the process of collaboration in the management of mangrove forests.

The toll road was impassable for automobiles and motorcycles. For cars will be charged a rate of Rp 10,000 and Rp 4,000 motorcycles.

Later this highway will be the most beautiful and iconic highway Bali.

This requires the construction of the highway fund of Rp 2.490.000.000.000 from a consortium comprising state-owned PT Jasa Marga Tbk, PT Pelindo III, PT Angkasa Pura I, PT Bali Tourism Development, PT Wijaya Karya Tbk, PT Adhi Karya Tbk, and PT Hutama Karya.
