Monkey Forest to Host Mass Cremation

Monkey Forest to Host Mass CremationMandala Wisata Wenara Wana or better known as the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary will serve as the venue of the mass Ngaben cremation. The ritual will be held on Saniscara Pon Gumbreg, Saturday (Sep 21). Prior to the event, various preparations have been made by the residents of Padang Tegal customary village, Ubud, Gianyar. The manager of tourist object, Putu Suartika, said that Monkey Forest would be flocked by myriad of people. They consisted of the Padang Tegal village community as the organizer of the ritual. “Incidentally, the graveyard of Padang Tegal lies amidst the forest of the tourist object area, so the ritual activities will be held there,” he said. At the time, approximately 80 corpses would be cremated. In this case, they were not the real corpse but only a symbol because the deceased had been buried previously. Such amount of corpses would be made some sarcophagus in the form of black bull, lions, elephants, fish, and others or in accordance with the respective clan of the corpse cremated. They would amount to about 30 units.

Mass cremation ritual was conducted every five years. Various preliminary activities had been carried out since early August. “On behalf of the management, please do accept our apologies for any inconvenience that may be caused. For example, it may be related to inadequate parking area and other inconveniences. However, we will continue to provide the best services,” said the owner of Ganesha Inn.
Then, to anticipate the number of flooding tourist arrival at that time, the management would provide additional entrance through Nyuh Kuning village. “Although serving as the center of the ceremony, we will continue to give travelers the opportunity to visit the object or look at the cultural procession held at that time,” he explained.

Schedule of the procession is as follows: Redite Wage Landep (Aug 18—nanceb), inaugural rite (Aug 25), negtegan lan nyangling (Aug 30), building (Sep 18), nyuung/nyunia (Sep 19), purification (Sep 20), cremation (Sep 21) and melayagin (Sep 24). Meanwhile, the ritual of maligia punggel will be held on October 1 (nuasen, negtegan, sunari lan pindekan kulkul), October 4 (ngangget don bingin umum), October 7 (ngangget bingin anggen Betara Lingga), 08 October (peak of maligia), October 9 (nganyut lan nyegara gunung), and October 10 (ngelinggihang).
