Pura Puncak Mangu- Bali

Description

Among the many Kahyangan Jagat temples on the island of Bali, some have exceptionally unique locations. One of them is Pura Pucak Mangu, situated in a highland area that is challenging to reach, far from the bustling crowds. It boasts a truly distinctive and captivating setting, particularly appealing to spiritual enthusiasts and nature lovers.

Pura Pucak Mangu rests on the slopes of Bali’s fourth highest mountain, Mount Catur, soaring at an altitude of 2,096 meters above sea level. This sacred site is among the many Kahyangan Jagat temple found on the Island of the Gods, nestled in the Banjar Tinggan region, Pelaga Village, Petang Subdistrict, Badung Regency, Bali. It’s lofty perch on Mount Catur also known as Pucak Mangu, offers breathtaking and captivating views of the natural landscape.

Around Pura Pucak Mangu, dense and ancient trees abound, with most branches covered in vibrant green moss that also adorns various parts of the temple structure. This natural spectacle is one of the primary attractions unique to Pura Pucak Mangu. Mount Catur, also known as Puncak Beratan due to its proximity to Lake Beratan Bedugul in Tabanan, is located to the northeast, earning it other names like Puncak Pangelangan, Pucak Mangu, and Pucak Tiingan.

Pura Pucak Mangu holds a long history closely intertwined with the existence of temples believed to have been established during the Megalithic era or ancient Bali. Historical evidence points to the presence of large stone lingam in the main courtyard of the temple complex during the Megalithic period.

The presence of Pura Pucak Mangu is also linked to one of the founders of the Mengwi Kingdom, I Gusti Agung Putu, who had a habit of engaging in tapa yoga to still his mind after past battlefield defeats. During his journey to the mountain’s peak, he encountered difficulties in the dense forest and serendipitously stumbled upon the ruins of a shrine complete with a lingam. It was here that he practiced tapa yoga, eventually discovering his true self. He then endeavored to rise from defeat to victory, ultimately establishing the Mengwi Kingdom. During I Gusti Agung Putu’s rule, Pura Pucak Mangu underwent restoration and several shrines were constructed.
