“Central Directional Temples, Worshipped Stones, Antique period metalworks”

Pura Pusering Jagat
Ranked #425 of 861 things to do in Bali
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 February 2016

The first and original center of directional temples of Bali during Mpu Kuturan period, as in later period, Bali was divided into nine kingdoms and each established its own central directional temple. Pura Pusering Jagat was located at Pejeng, near Ubud, the place of the Bali's oldest kingdom of Pejeng. All directional temples in the island epitomize the creation of the universe and Hindu cosmology, where the central is the axis mundi of the universe. Pura Pusering Jagat is not easy to find and apparently not a tourist destination. The entrance is at the back of the temple, which structure is built into separate section with different levels, symbolizing the outer and inner Mandala. At the inner temple, phallic and yoni stones are worshipped at the altar as symbol of the Purusha and Pradana.
Pura Pusering Jagat Temple is for the main worship of Shiva.
Another artifact is Sangku Sudamala, a large metalworks bowl/ vase dated 1251 Saka Year. Another objects are large stones behind the inner temples. Four faces deity (arca catur muka) was covered with clothes.

This temple is one of 3 within 100 metres of each other just outside Pejeng. This one is famous for its stone jar carved out of one piece of rock which is displayed in a temple tower. admission is by donation and temple dress is required, but to me there was no difference between the three temples.
